    It is widely accepted that most general anaesthetic agents depress the central nervous system (CNS) by potentiation or activation of the GABAA receptor-mediated Cl– conductance. These agents also reportedly inhibit voltage-sensitive Ca2+ channels (VSCCs), thus depressing excitatory...

    A letter to the editor is presented which urges medical personnel to remove the anaesthetic desflurane from clinical practice since it is an atmospheric pollutant that contributes to global warming.

  • Theoretical context-sensitive elimination times for inhalation anaesthetics. Lockwood, G. // BJA: The British Journal of Anaesthesia;May2010, Vol. 104 Issue 5, p648 

    Background: Context-sensitive times to 50%, 80%, and 90% elimination from the brain have been calculated for volatile anaesthetics. This does not represent complete recovery because there are important residual effects even at 90% elimination, and the effect of anaesthetic metabolism on the rate...

  • Intravenous anaesthesia in goats: A review. Dzikiti, T. Brighton // Journal of the South African Veterinary Association;2013, Vol. 84 Issue 1, p1 

    Intravenous anaesthesia is gradually becoming popular in veterinary practice. Traditionally, general anaesthesia is induced with intravenous drugs and then maintained with inhalation agents. Inhalation anaesthetic agents cause more significant dose-dependent cardiorespiratory depression than...

    The use of volatile anaesthetics in intensive care medicine has so far been limited by the lack of equipment suitable for daily routine use and the need for an anaesthetic machine. The new Anaesthetic Conserving Device (AnaConDa®) enables the routine use of volatile anaesthetics for long-term...
