15 Cards in this Set

  • Front
  • Back
enflurane
metabolized to Fl -> nephrotoxic
causes seizure like EEG changes
respiratory and cardiovascular depressant
methoxyflurane
low MAC
high B/G
metabolized to Fl -> irreversible renal failure
halothane
low MAC
narrow margin of safety
cardiotoxic - decreases BP and decreases HR
sensitizes to arrythmogenic actions of catecholamines (give beta blocker with it)
respiratory depressant
non-pungent so good for peds
isoflurane
pretty low B/G
low MAC
most common INH anesthetic
increases HR (opp of halothane)
decreases PVR (watch out in hypovolemic surg pts)
not too many bad s/e
sevoflurane
low B/G
non pungent, good for peds
desflurane
very low B/G, but requires a special vaporizer
pungent - not good for peds
increases sympathetic activity
nitrous oxide
MAC = 104%
low B/G
can cause diffusion hypoxia
inhaled anesthetic which increases sympathetic activity
desflurane (only one)
inhaled anesthetic which causes diffusion hypoxia
N2O
inhaled anesthetic which increases HR
isoflurane
3 inhaled anesthetics with low MAC
isoflurane
halothane
methoxyflurane
3 inhaled anesthetics with low B/G
desflurane
n2o
sevoflurane
cardiodepressant gas with low therapeutic index
halothane
gas which sensitizes myocardium to actions of catecholamines?
halothane
gas which causes seizure like EEG changes
enflurane
