 Synonyms & Historicals
Methoxyflurane .
Anecotan .
Penthrane .
Pentrane .
Methofluranum .
An inhalation anesthetic. Currently, methoxyflurane is rarely used for surgical, obstetric, or dental anesthesia. If so employed, it should be administered with NITROUS OXIDE to achieve a relatively light level of anesthesia, and a neuromuscular blocking agent given concurrently to obtain the desired degree of muscular relaxation. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p180) .
Benzocaine .
4-Aminobenzoic Acid Ethyl Ester .
Americaine .

Ethoform .
Acetate, Benzocaine .
Formate, Benzocaine .
Hydrobromide, Benzocaine .
Hydrochloride, Benzocaine .
Methanesulfonate, Benzocaine .
Ethyl Aminobenzoate .
A surface anesthetic that acts by preventing transmission of impulses along NERVE FIBERS and at NERVE ENDINGS. .
Anesthesia .
A state characterized by loss of feeling or sensation. This depression of nerve function is usually the result of pharmacologic action and is induced to allow performance of surgery or other painful procedures. .
Anesthesia, Dental .
Dental Anesthesia .
A range of methods used to reduce pain and anxiety during dental procedures. .
Anesthetics, Inhalation .
Anesthetic Gases .
Gases, Anesthetic .
Inhalation Anesthetics .
Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173) .
Anesthetics, General .
General Anesthetics .
Agents that induce various degrees of analgesia; depression of consciousness, circulation, and respiration; relaxation of skeletal muscle; reduction of reflex activity; and amnesia. There are two types of general anesthetics, inhalation and intravenous. With either type, the arterial concentration of drug required to induce anesthesia varies with the condition of the patient, the desired depth of anesthesia, and the concomitant use of other drugs. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p.173) .
