Major inhibitory neuro-transmitter in the CNS = GABA Active GABA receptor => Cl- influx => hyperpolarisation Propofol & barbiturates slow GABA/receptor dissociation Benzodiazepines increase GABA to receptor coupling Ketamine acts at NMDA receptor These effects lead to sedative & hypnotic effects Dr. Andrew Ferguson Pharmacodynamics : Pharmacodynamics Increasing dose => sedation => hypnosis All iv anaesthetics affect other organ systems Potential for respiratory depression Potential for CVS depression Potential for altered CBF/ICP Hypovolaemia => severe haemodynamic effects seen due to decreased blood pool Use lower doses! Dr. Andrew Ferguson Distribution & Elimination : Distribution & Elimination Dr. Andrew Ferguson Single-injection Kinetics : Single-injection Kinetics Dr. Andrew Ferguson Context-sensitive Half-Time : Context-sensitive Half-Time Time required for central compartment blood concentration to fall by half as a function of the duration of an infusion (of variable rate designed to maintain steady state) Dr. Andrew Ferguson Schema for Discussing Drugs : Schema for Discussing Drugs Chemistry Structure & structure-activity relationship Physical properties Mode of action Organ effects CVS RS CNS GIT etc. Pharmacokinetics Distribution Metabolism Elimination Side-effects Clinical Use Dr. Andrew Ferguson Propofol : Propofol Very widespread use...know inside out! 2,6-diisopropylphenol Emulsion with 10% soybean oil, 2.25% glycerol and 1.2% lecithin (egg yolk phosphatide - ? allergen) Injection pain (up to 65%) decreased by lidocaine Induction dose higher in kids, lower in elderly Metabolised in liver & ? lungs Wake-up due to redistribution, not metabolism Significant vasodilatation & baroreceptor inhibitor Antiemetic Suppresses laryngeal reflexes Dr. Andrew Ferguson Etomidate : Etomidate Imidazole derivative, D-(+) isomer Poorly soluble in H2O => propylene glycol used Wake-up due to redistribution Metabolised by ester hydrolysis to inactives Minimal haemodynamic effects, short half-life High incidence of PONV (35-40%) May activate seizure foci, myoclonus in 50% Adrenocortical suppression dose-dependent 11 b-hydroxylase inhibition lasts 4-12 hrs after single dose (much longer in critically ill) Dr. Andrew Ferguson Ketamine : Ketamine Phencyclidine derivative Racemic mixture: S-isomer fewer adverse effects Effects Significant analgesia at sub-anaesthetic doses “Dissociative anaesthesia” - cataleptic state Blocks NMDA receptor (NOT GABAA active) Vivid dreams or hallucinations during recovery EEG changes cannot be used to gauge depth More stable haemodynamics in unstable patients Less diminution of airway reflexes (less, not none!!) Dr. Andrew Ferguson Benzodiazepines : Benzodiazepines iv prep: midazolam, diazepam, lorazepam Midazolam has imidazole ring ring protonated => water soluble at acid pH In body, ring unprotonated => lipid soluble solubility NOT due to opening of benzo ring at low pH At pH 4 only 9% of MDZ rings are open (75% at pH 2) Bind specific site between a + g subunits of GABAA receptor Hepatic metabolism Vasodilatation with MDZ > Diazepam Dr. Andrew Ferguson Thiopental : Thiopental Thiobarbiturate Sodium salt + anhdrous NaHCO3 => pH 10-11 Precipitates with acidic drugs e.g. NMBs Extravascular injection => pain + tissue injury Intra-arterial injection => crystals + ischaemia Dose dependent CNS depression Decrease CBF, ICP, CMRO2, seizure activity Less BP fall at induction than propofol Compensatory heart rate increase offsets vasodilatation effects Caution in hypovolaemia, tamponade, IHD, heart failure Wake-up due to redistribution Dr. Andrew Ferguson Slide 14: Dr. Andrew Ferguson Single dose pharmacokinetics : Single dose pharmacokinetics Dr. Andrew Ferguson Induction Characteristics : Induction Characteristics Dr. Andrew Ferguson CNS effects of IV anaesthetics : CNS effects of IV anaesthetics CMRO2 = cerebral metabolic rate for oxygen CBF = cerebral blood flow CPP = cerebral perfusion pressure ICP = intracranial pressure Dr. Andrew Ferguson CVS Effects of IV Anaesthetics : CVS Effects of IV Anaesthetics Dr. Andrew Ferguson RS Effects of IV Anaesthetics : RS Effects of IV Anaesthetics Dr. Andrew Ferguson Slide 20: CVS RESP CNS Dr. Andrew Ferguson You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
