Induction Agents associated with which mechanism of action result in dose-related respiratory depression and apnea?
Enhances GABA on GABAA receptor
The MAC of Tingflurane is 5.4%. The MAC of Stagflurane is 3.6%. Which is more potent?
The lower the MAC, the more potent the agent
The blood gas solubility for Tingflurane is 0.4. The blood gas solubility for Stagflurane is 1.5. Which would have a faster onset of induction?
The lower the blood solubility, the faster the onset of induction
What is the boiling point for Desflurane?
Between halothane and sevoflurane, which has a higher vapor pressure?
Desflurane > Halothane > Isoflurane > Sevoflurane
Between halothane and sevoflurane, which has a higher blood gas solubility?
Blood gas solubility: Halothane > Isoflurane > Sevoflurane > Desflurane
Halothane has the highest blood gas solubility and therefore is the most POTENT
Desflurane has the lowest blood gas solubility, which means it has the fastest onset and the fastest recovery
T/F: The higher the MAC, the higher the potency
The higher the MAC, the LOWER the potency
Potency ranking: Halothane > Isoflurane > Sevoflurane > Desflurane
What is the basic MAC value for Isoflurane?
