Anesthetic Gases Contribute to Climate Change, Say Atmospheric Chemists

Desflurane, isoflurane, sevoflurane and halothane – clinically used inhalation anesthetic agents – are accumulating in the atmosphere of our planet, where they make a contribution to climate change, says a group of researchers led by Dr Martin Vollmer of the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology in Dubendorf, Switzerland. Like carbon dioxide, desflurane [...] —> Read More
