  34. What is the "hungover" affect attributed to, and how does it relate to our inability to ever fully reach a "steady state"?
    • No steady state because drug goes to muscle and fat groups. Even after anesthetic is turned off, the areas of lower perfusion (muscle/fat) are still recycling drug and releasing back into blood stream and then brain (as long as there is still a difference in the pressure gradient)...
    • Thus creating the "hungover" effect.
