What is MAC?
minimum alveolar concentration = smallest concentration of inhalation agent at which 50% of patients will not move with incision
What does a small MAC mean?
more lipid soluble = more potent
Speed of induction is inversely proportional to ____
Which inhalation agent is fastest but has high MAC (low potency), also minimal myocardial depression?
Which inhalation agent is slow, higest degree of cardiac depression and arrhythmias; least pungent; which is good for children?
What are the sx of Halothane hepatitis?
fever, eosinophilia, jaundice, increased LFTs
Which inhalation agent can cause seizures?
Which inhalation agent is good for neurosurgery but has higher cost?
Which inhalation agent has less myocardial depression, fast onset/offset, less laryngospasm; higher cost?
Which induction agent is a fast acting barbituate with side effects of decreased cerebral blood flow and metabolic rate, decreased blood pressure.
Which induction agent has very rapid distribution and on/off; amnesia; sedative. Not an analgesic. Metabolized in liver by plasma cholinesterases. Do not use in patients with egg allergy.
What are the side effects of propofol.
hypotension and respiratory depression
Which induction agent has dissociation of thalamic/limbic systems; places pt in a cataleptic state (amnesia, analgesia). No respiratory depression.
What are the side effects of Ketamine?
hallucinations, catecholamine release (increased carbon monoxide, tachycardia), increased airway secretions, and increased cerebral blood flow
When is ketamine contraindicated?
pts with a head injury
Which induction agent has fewer hemodynamic changes; fast acting. Continuous infusions can lead to adrenocortical suppression.
What is the last muscle to go down and 1st muscle to recover from paralytics?
What is the first muscle to go down and the last to recover from paralytics?
neck muscles and face
What is the only depolarizing agent?
What is the 1st sign of malignant hyperthermia?
increased end-tidal CO2
Tx for malignant hyperthermia?
Dantrolene inhibits Ca release. cooling blankets, bicarb, glucose
Do not use succinylchoine in pts with what?
burn pts, neurologic injury, neuromuscular disorders, spinal cord injury, massive trauma, acute renal failure
What can happen if pt with open-angle glaucoma gets succinylcholine?
it can become close angle glaucoma
cause prolonged paralysis with succinylcholine (Asians)
How do nondepolarizing paralytic agents work?
inhibit neuromuscular junction by competing with acetylcholine
Which paralytic undergoes Hoffman degredation. Can be used in liver and renal failure. Histamine release.
Which paralytic is fast, short acting; degradation by plasma cholinesterases. Histamine release.
Which paralytic is fast, intermediate duration; hepatic metabolism.
Which paralytic is slow acting, long-lasting; renal metabolism. Most common side effect is tachycardia.
