Objectives l.jpg

OBJECTIVES

  • Discuss the discovery and early development of inhalational anesthetics.

  • Explain theories of anesthetic action related to inhalational anesthetics.

  • Define MAC and respective percentages for volatile anesthetic agents.

  • Compare and contrast the physical properties of inhalational anesthetics and their effects on organ systems.

  • Discuss biotransformation and contraindications related to specific volatile anesthetic agents.

CHEMICAL STRUCTURE OFINHALATIONAL AGENTS


Proposed mechanisms of inhalation anesthetic action l.jpg

PROPOSED MECHANISMS OF INHALATION ANESTHETIC ACTION

  • General anesthesia is an altered physiologic state characterized by reversible loss of consciousness, analgesia of the entire body, amnesia, and to some degree muscle relaxation

    • Meyer-Overton Rule (Critical Volume Hypothesis)

    • Protein Receptor Hypothesis (Agent Specific Theory)

    • Microcrystaline Theory

    • Alteration in Neurotransmitter Availability


Minimum alveolar concentration l.jpg

MINIMUM ALVEOLAR CONCENTRATION

  • MAC defined as

  • MAC mirrors brain partial pressure, allows comparisons of potency between agents, and provides a standard for experimental evaluations

  • Patient specific

  • MAC %:

    • N2O

    • Halothane

    • Ethrane

    • Forane

    • Desflurane

    • Sevoflurane

Ideal inhalational anesthetic l.jpg

IDEAL INHALATIONAL ANESTHETIC

  • Rapid onset – rapid recovery

  • Easy to administer

  • Possess clear indication of anesthetic depth

  • No significant effect on organ systems

  • High margin of safety for all age groups

  • Inexpensive


Clincal case studies l.jpg

CLINCAL CASE STUDIES

  • 78 year old male presents to OR from ED diagnosed with a small bowel obstruction. PMH: CHF, CAD, and history of seizures 2 years prior to admission.

  • 26 year old female presents to OR for emergent cesarean section. General anesthesia is initiated due to fetal distress (bradycardia and acidosis). PMH: negative.

  • 47 year old male presents to OR for elective colon resection. PMH: CRFand arthritis.

  • 6 year old female presents to the OR for elective adenoidectomy and tonsillectomy. PMH: negative.
