2 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents Induction with IV Anaesthetic agents is smoother and rapid than inhalational agents

5 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents Pharmacokinetics of IV Anaesthetic Agents: After IV rapid in plasma conc. slower decline Anaesthesia is produced by diffusion of drug from arterial blood across BBB into the brain
6 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents Rate of transfer into the brain and anaesthetic effect is regulated by: 1.Protein binding 2.Blood flow to the brain 3.Extracellular pH & pKa of the drug 4.The relative solubilities of the drug in lipid and water 5.Speed of Injection
7 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents 1.Protein Binding: Only unbound drug is free to cross the BBB Low plasma protein Displacement from proteins by other drugs increase free drug conc. Hyperventilation decreases protein binding and increases anaesthetic effect
8 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents 2.Blood Flow to the Brain: Reduced blood flow reduced delivery of the drug. If CBF is decreased due to low Cardiac output---initial blood conc. Higher than N, i.e Anaesthetic effect may be delayed but enhanced.
9 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents 3.Extracellular pH & pKa of the drug: Only non-ionized fraction of the drug penetrates the lipid BBB The potency of the drug depends on the degree of ionization at the pH of extracellular fluid & pKa of the drug.
10 Intravenous Anaesthetic Agents 4.The relative solubilities of the drug in lipid and Water: High lipid solubility enhances transfer into brain. 5.Speed of Injection: Rapid IV adminstration high initial conc. increases speed of induction and extent of CV and Resp.side effects
