Nitrous oxide is the only inhaled anesthetic that does not drop the blood pressure. 2. Suppression of sympathetic nervous system activity: Three inhaled anesthetics, nitrous oxide, isoflurane, and desflurane, actually increase sympathetic activity, usually in a dose-dependent fashion. 3. Maintenance of heart rate: All of the inhaled anesthetics tend to increase the heart rate, at least at some concentrations.

Ease of vaporization at room temperature: Three of the anesthetics are volatile, and can be supplied as bottled liquids, which can be easily transformed into a much larger volume of gas. Vaporizers, specific for each anesthetic, accomplish this task. Each vaporizer converts its liquid into the anesthetic vapor, which is then delivered in a specified quantity to the patient along with oxygen through the breathing circuit.
