practice of using combinations of different drug classes rather than a single drug to produce anesthesia
- drug-induced state in which the CNS nerve impulses are altered to reduce pain throughout the entire body
- normally involves complete loss of consciousness and depression of normal respiratory drive
drug-induced state in which peripheral or spinal nerve impulses are altered to reduce or eliminate pain and other sensations in tissues innervated by these nerves
milder form of general anesthesia that causes partial or complete loss of consciousness but doesn't generally reduce normal respiratory drive
describes the relationship between the lipid solubility of anesthetic drugs and their potency
local anesthesia induced by injection of an anesthetic drug near the spinal cord to anesthetize nerves that are distal to the site of injection
