Inhalation Anesthesia and Myocardial Function: Pharmacodynamic and Pharmacokinetic Aspects
- 31 Downloads
Although numerous newer intravenous anesthetics and the relevant techniques have been developed, interest in halogenated volatile anesthetics has increased again recently. This is due not only to the continuous efforts of developing volatile anesthetics with almost ideal physicochemical properties, but above all to the fact that the useful aspects of inhalational anesthetics in terms of controlled depression of myocardial contractility and protection against uncontrolled rise of sympathetic activity have been recognized .
