Volatile anaesthetic agents such as halothane and ultane are generally preferred due to their inhibitory effect on bronchospasm (Groeben 2004).
The volatile liquids include desflurane (Suprane), enflurane (Ethrane), halothane (Fluothane), isoflurane (Forane), methoxyflurane (Penthrane), and sevoflurane (Ultane).
For induction, sevoflurane (Ultane, Abbott Laboratories, North Chicago, IL, USA) was delivered at a rate of 2 L/min via facemask using a nonrebreathing system to provide an end-tidal concentration of 7% in oxygen.
Ultane Dillane gets a rare chance from the start as he partners Quinn Roux in an all-Connacht second row and Dave Kilcoyne begins in the front row.
