trichloroethylene

[trīklôr′ō·eth′ilēn]
a general anesthetic, administered by mask with N2O, for dentistry, minor surgery, and the first stages of labor. It is too cardiotoxic for deep anesthesia, even in light planes of anesthesia. It is not currently used in clinical anesthesia practice in developed countries.
