Methoxyflurane

Methoxyflurane (Penthrane) is the most potent inhala-tional agent available, but its high solubility in tissues limits its use as an induction anesthetic. Its pharmacological properties are similar to those of halothane with some notable exceptions. For example, since methoxyflurane does not depress cardiovascular reflexes, its direct myo-cardial depressant effect is partially offset by reflex tachycardia, so arterial blood pressure is better main-tained.Also,the oxidative metabolism of methoxyflurane results in the production of oxalic acid and fluoride concentrations that approach the threshold of causing renal tubular dysfunction. Concern for nephrotoxicity has greatly restricted the use of methoxyflurane.
