Induction Agents and Opioids
Card Set Information
Induction Agents and Opioids
IV induction agents and opioids
What is the MOA of Ketamine?
-blocks polysynaptic reflexes in the spinal cord
-interacts with opioid receptors and possibly ketamine receptors
-inhibits excitatory neurotransmitters
-dissociates thalamus from the limbic system (dissociative anesthesia)
What is the MOA of Propofol?
Increases activity of GABA synapses
What is the MOA of Benzodiazepines?
bind to receptors that are separate from but adjacent to GABA receptors, these receptors cause opening of Cl ion channels that result in a hyperpolarization of the neuron
What is the MOA of Etomidate?
-depresses the RAS
-mimics inhibitory effects of GABA
-possible inhibitory effect on part of CNS that controls extrapyramidal motor activity
What is the MOA of Barbiturates?
-suppress excitatory neurotransmitters
-augment inhibitory neurotransmitters
-decreases transmission impulses to SNS
Etomidate CNS Pharmacodynamics?
-decrease CBF, CMRO2 and ICP in dose dependant manner
-activates seizure foci
Etomidate CV Pharmacodynamics?
-etomidate induction agent of choice for cardiovascular compromise
Etomidate Resp Pharmacodynamics?
-dose dependent decrease in RR and TV
-less effect on respiration than other agents
Dose of Etomidate?
Pharmkinetics of Etomidate?
: higly lipid soluble
: metabolized in liver to inactive, metabolites; metabolized by
Side Effects of Etomidate?
-myoclonus (decresed with opioid administration)
-nausea and vomitting
-fentanyl increases elimination 1/2 life
Pharmacokinetics of Benzodiazepienes?
: Oral, IV, IM
: highly lipid soluble at physiologic pH, small, midazolam and diazepam more lipid soluble than lorazepam
: liver to water soluble metabolites, midazolam 5X faster than lorazepam and 10X faster than diazepam, diazepam has active metabolites, duration of action determined by metabolisma and excretion
CNS Pharmacodynamics of Benzo's?
prevention and control of grand mal seizure (especially diazepam)
spinal cord mediated muscle relaxation
CV pharmacodynamics of benzo's
mild systemic vasodilation and decreased CO
possible vagolytic increase in HR

decreased ventilatory response to increased CO2
dose dependent decrease in RR and TV
Side effects of Benzo's?
: valproate-psychotic effects
heparin-displaces diazepam from protein
erythromycin-inhibits midazolam metabolism
Benzo's and opioids
: decreased HR and SVR, birth defects (cleft lip and palate), crosses placenta
: 0.5-2.5 mg/kg
: 2.5-5.0 mg/kg
: 0.5-2.0 mg/kg
Pharmacokinetics of Propofol?
: highly lipid soluble
: metabolized in liver to inactive metabolites
: 0.3% excreted unchanged in urine
CNS pharmacodynamics of Propofol?
unconciousness or sedation
decrease CPP, CBF and ICP
decreases intraocular pressure
CV pharmacodynamics of Propofol?
dose dependent decrease in BP (greater with hypovolemic, elderly and the cv compromised)
unchanged HR (occassional bradycardia and heart block
Respiratory pharmacodynamics of Propofol?
opioids enhance respiratory depression
bronchodilation with COPD
GI/GU pharmacodynamics with Propofol?
care with pancreatitis and hyper lipidemia
antiemetic effects (10-20 mg)
phenols turn urine green
Side effects of Propofol?
containdicated with egg yolk allergy
pain on injection
good bacterial growth medium (only keep 6 hours after drawn)
decreases pruritus with neuroaxial opiods
Side effects of Propofol additives?
Baxter (Sodium Metabisulfite)
: sulfite sensitivities-anaphylaxis or asthmatic episode
: chelating effects (Ca, Mg and Zi homeostasis effects), nephrotoxicity, negative effect on cardiac conduction, increased toxicity with long term use
: 2-2.5 mg/kg
: 25-100 mcg/kg/min
: 20-200 mcg/kg/min
Pharmacokinetics of Ketamine?
: IV, IM
: highly lipid soluble (greater than thiopental), less PRO bound than thiopental, equally ionized at body pH, redistribution
: liver with some active metabolites (Norketamine 1/3-1/5 as potent)
CNS pharmacodynamics of Ketamine
increased CBF and CMRO2
activates seizure foci (with known seizure disorders)
CV pharmacodynamics of Ketamine
increased HR, BP and pulmonary pressures
myocardial depressent if hypovolemic, ANS blockade or maximal SNS stimulation
Respiratory pharmacodynamics of Ketamine
mild decrease in RR and TV
minimal effect on response to hypercarbia
maintains laryngeal reflexes longer
Side effects of Ketamine
increased oral secretions
emotional disturbances (increases with age, female and >2mg/kg)
increased ICP, CMRO2 and CBF
increased muscle tone
eye movements (nystagmus, diplopia and blepharospasms)
increased intraoccular pressure
difficult to assess depth
: IV 1-2 mg/kg, IM 5-10 mg/kg
: 0.2 mg/kg
Pharmacokinetics of Barbiturates
: IV, IM, Oral, Rectal
: highly lipid soluble, 1 arm to brain circulation time, dependent on redistribution (quick recovery), thiopental highly PRO bound
: liver to inactive metabolites
: Renal, methohexital fecal
CNS pharmacodynamics of Barbiturates
unconsciousness (hyperalgesia in subhypnotic doses)
decreased CMRO2 and ICP
anticonvulsant (except methohexital)
CV pharmacodynamics of Barbiturates
decreased BP and CO
Respiratory pharmacodynamics of Barbiturates
dose dependent decreased RR ad TV (may cause apnea)
laryngeal reflex and cough not depressed
Enzymatic pharmacodynamics of Barbiturates
induces cytochrome P-450
Side effects of Barbiturates
myoclonus and hiccupping
CI in pt with
pain at injection site
tissue necrosis with infiltration
thiopental may cause bronchospasm in asthmatics
