Boiling point - 23 *C
Therefore can boil at room temperature.
Hence require special vaporizer ( Tec 6)
- Lowest Blood gas coefficient - therefore fastest acting.
(Remember the order of speed/BG coeff/MAC/Potency etc. as discussed before - Click here to read about it.)
Potency depends on Oil Gas partition coefficient.
Desflurane is least potent (Mn: Meeting Halo i.e super dangerous)
- Least metabolized (therefore least nephrotoxic)
- Malignant hyperthermia
- Intra Cranial hypertention.
