Sevoflurane is indicated for use in the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia in adult and pediatric patients for inpatient and outpatient surgery. Sevoflurane is used as a general anesthetic in veterinary medicine. Although the mechanism of sevoflurane has not been fully elucidated, it may act by interfering with the release and re-uptake of neurotransmitters at post-synaptic terminals, and/or alter ionic conductance following receptor activation by a neurotransmitter. Sevoflurane may also interact directly with lipid matrix of neuronal membranes, thereby affecting gating properties of ion channels. Additionally, it may activate GABA receptors, hyperpolarizing cell membranes. This results in a general anesthetic effect, a decrease in myocardial contractility and mean arterial pressure, and increased respiratory rate.
