Trichloroacetaldehyde Hydrate is a useful chemical reagent used as a sedative/hypnotic agent. Studies have shown that when used in pediatric sedation side effects such as hallucination, excessive slee p and seizures were observed. It is sometimes administered to patients being treated with cyclophosphamide and it is known to inhibit some aldehyde dehydrogenases.
