Then later newer generations of halogenated hydrocarbon anaesthetics were introduced by replacing the hydrogen atom with fluorine atom to decrease flammable property of the inhalational
agents were used at 1.5 MAC and above, and such concentrations would likely be avoided in current practice.
The exact incidence of PAP due to inhalational
exposure is unknown.
Initial anaesthesia plan was to give inhalational
induction with controlled mode of ventilation with both ultrasound guided arterial and central venous line insertion.
The purpose of this case report is to bring to attention femoral head osteonecrosis as a potential side effect of inhalational
