Principles and Technique of I.V. Anesthesia

  • W. F. List


In balanced i.v. anesthesia all necessary components can be managed with i.v. agents — consciousness with hypnotics, pain with opioids, and muscle relaxation with curare type relaxants. An additional stress protection can be achieved with high doses of hypnotics, analgesics or neuroleptics.
