Xenon is both an old and a new anesthetic. Although its anesthetic properties have been known for more than 50 yr, it was largely forgotten until 1990, mainly because of its high cost. Aside from this problem, xenon possesses many of the characteristics of an ideal anesthetic. For example, its blood–gas partition coefficient is extremely small (0.115), yielding rapid emergence from anesthesia regardless of the duration of anesthesia. It lacks teratogenicity, and it produces analgesia, thereby… CONTINUE READING
