Inhalational induction is common in pediatric patients, and the potent inhaled anesthetic agents are excellent bronchodilators. The only exception is desflurane, which has mild bronchoconstricting activity.
The potent inhaled agents decrease skeletal muscle tone in a dose-dependent fashion, which often improves surgical exposure.
Mode Of Action
