enflurane

 [en´floo-rān]
a potent inhalational anesthetic, widely used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. It is nonflammable, induction and recovery are smooth and rapid, and the depth of anesthesia is rapidly altered. The incidence of arrhythmias and postoperative nausea and vomiting are somewhat less than with halothane or methoxyflurane. It is also used in low concentrations to provide analgesia during labor or painful procedures.
