Descriptor English: Halothane
Descriptor Spanish: Halotano
Descriptor halotano
Scope note: Anestésico hidrocarburo halogenado no inflamable que proporciona una inducción relativamente rápida con poca o nula excitación. La analgesia puede no ser adecuada. Con frecuencia se administra ÓXIDO NITROSO de modo concomitante. Dado que el halotano puede no producir una suficiente relajación muscular, pueden requerirse agentes bloqueantes neuromusculares suplementarios. (AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p178)

Scope note: A nonflammable, halogenated, hydrocarbon anesthetic that provides relatively rapid induction with little or no excitement. Analgesia may not be adequate. NITROUS OXIDE is often given concomitantly. Because halothane may not produce sufficient muscle relaxation, supplemental neuromuscular blocking agents may be required.
