Methoxyflurane was used as the sole inhalational analgesic in the dressing of 76 burns performed on 10 patients. It was used in air by analgizer(method 1) or analgizer with mask(method 2), or used by the semiclosed circle absorber by Pentec vaporizer(Cyprane) in 100% oxygen with the concentration of mathoxyflurane set at 0.5%(method 3) or at 0.7%(method 4). Comparative study concerning the analgesic action gave the following results: 1. Methoxyflurane through on analgizer(method 1) produced poor to good annalgesic action in burned patients. 2. Analgizer with mask(method 2) produced better analgesic action than analgizer alone. 3. 0.5% setting(method 3) was similar to analgizer with mask(method 2). 4. 0.7% setting(method 4) was produced complete analgesia, amnesia and partial loss of consciousness.
