Abstract The information provided for each substance includes physico-chemical properties, industrial and environmental exposure, health effects, metabolism, biological indicators, monitoring techniques, analytical methods, conclusions and research needs. Biological monitoring for anaesthetic agents covers nitrous oxide, halothane (fluothane), enflurane (ethrane), forane (isoflurane) and methoxyflurane (penthrane).
