||This review monograph covers the problems of occupational exposure to inhalation anaesthetics in a hospital setting. The principal substances concerned are enflurane (ethrane), halothane, isoflurane, methoxyflurane and nitrous oxide. Examined are: metabolism of these substances; health effects of exposure; environmental and biological monitoring; correlations between environmental and biological levels; environmental and biological exposure limits; health surveillance. In annex: technical notes on the determination in air and in urine of volatile anaesthetics; other chemical contaminants in the hospital environment; use of Equivalent Biological Limits in longitudinal studies.
