Propofol alone can be used to maintain anaesthesia, but the infusion rates are very high, with significant cardiovascular side-effects. g. g. remifentanil). An alternative is to use a regional anaesthetic technique for analgesia. If muscle relaxation is required, neuromuscular blocking drugs are given and the patient is usually ventilated with oxygenenriched air. Nitrous oxide can be used, but this is not strictly TIVA and some of the advantages are lost. Advantages of total intravenous anaesthesia • The potential toxic effects of the inhalational anaesthetics are avoided.

The drug is then redistributed to other tissues and the plasma concentration falls; this is followed by a fall in brain concentration and the patient recovers consciousness. Despite a short duration of action, complete elimination, usually by hepatic metabolism, may take considerably longer and lead to accumulation. Consequently, most drugs are not given repeatedly to maintain anaesthesia. Currently, the only exception to this is propofol (see below). Whichever drug is used, the dose required to induce anaesthesia will be dramatically reduced in those patients who are elderly, frail, have compromise of their cardiovascular system or are hypovolaemic.

Its main aim is to ensure that oxygen flows through the oxygen delivery system and is unaffected by the use of any additional gas or vapour. Most modern anaesthetic machines now have built-in oxygen analysers that monitor the inspired oxygen concentration to minimize this risk. Anaesthetic breathing systems The mixture of anaesthetic gas and vapour travels from the anaesthetic machine to the patient via an anaesthetic circuit, or more correctly an anaesthetic breathing system. Delivery to the patient is via a facemask, laryngeal mask or tracheal tube (see pages 18–25).
