Epileptic potential is present in
|B|| Halothane |
a. It is fluorinated – compound.
b. Physical properties
a. It is colourless liquid
b. Odour is sweat so induction is smooth.
c. Anaesthetic Properties
Faster (B/G coefficient 0.69), pleasant and smooth induction with no significant systemic toxicity makes the sevoflurane as agent of choice for induction, especially in children.
d. Systemic Effects:
i. Cardiovascular System: Cardiac output is minimally depressed. i.e. Prefered in children.
ii. Another toxic metabolic product compound A, an olefin is produced when sevoflurane is used with sodalime (especially at low fresh gas flows).
iii. CNS: Decreases cerebral metabolic oxygen requirement . increases CBF. has been shown to have epileptogenic potential.
IF any question asked on epilepsy if enflurane is in choice ans is enflurane if enflurane is not in choice sevoflurane is answer.
