Ultane Indication

Used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia in adult and pediatric patients for inpatient and outpatient surgery.

Ultane Pharmacology

Sevoflurane (also called fluoromethyl) is a halogenated ether used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. Together with desflurane, it is replacing isoflurane and halothane in modern anesthesiology. It is often administered in nitrous oxide and pure oxygen. After desflurane it is the volatile anesthetic with the fastest onset and offset. It induces muscle relaxation and reduces pains sensitivity by altering tissue excitability. It does so by decreasing the extent of gap junction mediated cell-cell coupling and altering the activity of the channels that underlie the action potential.

Ultane Absorption

Rapidly absorbed into circulation via the lungs, however solubility in the blood is low.
