3

induction dose of etomidate

0.2-0.5mg/kg IV

4

induction bolus dose of propofol

1-2.5mg/kg IV bolus

5

induction infusion dose of propfol

50-200mcg/kg/min

6

best induction agent for hypovolemic trauma pts?

ketamine, as long is there is no risk of increased ICP

7

best induction agent for pts with asthma?

ketamine

8

which IV induction agent is least likely to induce n/v?

propofol

9

propofol's CV effects

decrease in MAP due to combination of arterial and venous vasodilation. inhibition of baroreceoptor response - no reflex tachycardia

10

respiratory effect of ketamine

bronchodilation
preserved respiratory drive

11

CV effect of etomidate

relatively stable hemodynamic properties.

12

describe presentation of propofol infusion syndrome

new onset metabolic acidosis, cardiac dysfunction, rhabdomyolysis, renal failure, hypertriglyceridemia
--thought to be secondary to impairment of mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation and free fatty acid utilization leading to lactic acidosis and myocyte necrosis.
