The medulla potentiates descending inhibitory pathways that modulate ascending pain signals. The cerebral cortex decreases the perception and emotional response to pain. However, due to the widespread distribution of opioid receptors, many varied and unwanted effects may occur. Respiratory depression and physical dependence, pruritus and bradycardia result from agonist activity at the above receptor sites. Furthermore, agonism of the sigma receptor results in hypertension, tachycardia, delirium, and dysphoria.

This property increases the stability of the local anesthetic esters and any accompanying vasoconstrictor substance. Under usual conditions of administration, the pH of the local anesthetic solution rapidly equilibrates to that of the extracellular fluids. Although the unprotonated species of the local anesthetic is necessary for diffusion across cellular membranes, the cationic species interacts preferentially with Naþ channels. Changes in pH of the injected local anesthetic solution can produce a shortening of onset time, with marked decreases paralleling major pH changes.

Intravenous sedative/analgesic drugs should be given in small, incremental doses titrated to desired end points of sedation and analgesia, with adequate time allowed between doses to achieve those effects. 2.
