1

Induction Agents

N2O
Stage 1- Angelsia --> Stage 3

2

Anesthetic Potency _______ to Lipid Solubility (O/W)

proportional

3

Anesthetic Potency is______ proportional to MAC

INVERSELY

4

_____________ (reaching effective anesthetic brain concentration) is influenced by multiple factors of uptake and distribution of the general anesthetic

Rate of onset of anesthetic action

Concentration
Solubility

5

Increased concentration_________ by increasing rate of transfer into blood

increases rate of induction

6

Solubility of the anesthetic in blood

Defined by

blood:gas partition coefficient

Lower the blood solubility of the gas the faster the rate of induction

7

Rate of Onset inversely ______ to Blood Solubility

proportional

8

The greater blood solubility of ______ requires a longer time for partial pressure in blood to rise to that in alveoli - delaying rise of anesthetic concentration in brain

halothane

9

Medium rate of onset

halothane

10

Rapid onset

NO
