Isoflurane is a halogenated ether. The anesthtetic properties of Isoflurane make it a desirable component in anesthetic formulations. Although its mechanism is still being understood, Isoflurane anesthesia has shown promising results in mice. Research suggests a relationship between postoperative cognitive dysfunction and isoflurane inhalation anesthesia.
