Comments
Methoxyflurane is a halogenated ether volatile inhalational anaesthetic. In the US it was withdrawn from the market for safety concerns (it is nephrotoxic and hepatotoxic) but is still available/used in other countries, including the UK (for emergency relief of moderate to severe pain in conscious adult patients as a result of trauma).
