The Netter Collection of Medical Illustrations - Cardiovascular System: Volume 8, 2e

View the cardiovascular process as purely Netter photos can depict it. This spectacularly illustrated quantity, a part of the masterwork often called the Netter (CIBA) "Green Books," presents a hugely visible advisor to the center, from simple technological know-how, anatomy, and body structure to pathology and damage. This vintage Netter reference has been up to date to reflect the various interesting advances in cardiovascular drugs and imaging - delivering exceptional insights into anatomy, body structure, and scientific stipulations.

INHALED ANESTHETIC UPTAKE • Agent levels in the brain depend on agent levels (partial pressure) in the alveolus • Goal is to achieve rise in Fa (alveolar anesthetic concentration)/Fi (inspired anesthetic concentration) • ↑ Fa/Fi →↑ speed of induction (see Fig.  Induction kinetics of commonly inhaled anesthetics. , halothane) • Tissue: Blood partition coefficient = time for equilibrium of tissue with arterial blood Cardiac Output • Increased cardiac output results in faster uptake but ↓ alveolar concentration (Fa) and therefore slower induction (more blood passing through lungs = anesthetic is carried away faster).

25) may cause transient but significant sympathetic stimulation Sevoflurane • Key features: Least pungent (best choice for inhalational induction); fast onset/offset of action; causes ↓ tachycardia than desflurane or isoflurane; does not sensitize myocardium to catecholamines • Disadvantages: Controversial potential for nephrotoxicity due to metabolic production of fluoride ion and degradation to Compound A (nephrotoxic in animals). , MH susceptibility, severe PONV) • Low-dose infusions/small incremental boluses used for procedural sedation, regional anesthesia adjunct • Most IV anesthetics are capable of causing transient apnea with induction doses; respiratory depressant effects ↑ by co-administration of narcotics • Direct myocardial depressant properties “unmasked” by hypovolemia, critical illness, or catecholamine depletion; use caution and adjust dosing accordingly • Agents with varying extent and route of metabolism show similar duration of action after bolus (induction) dosing because termination of effect is due to redistribution to skeletal muscle or fat • Drugs bound to plasma proteins are unavailable for uptake by target organs; dosing for highly protein-bound drugs may need adjustment in disease states with ↓ protein production (CHF, malignancy, renal or hepatic failure) PROPOFOL (DIPRIVAN) • Widely used for anesthetic induction, though associated with CV depression • Reduce/titrate dose for elderly, critically ill, hypovolemic (↓ central distribution volume, ↓ clearance → ↑ myocardial depression) • Infusion common for MAC and TIVA; rapid clearance makes context-sensitive half-life <40 min for infusions up to 8 hrs • Hepatic and extra-hepatic clearance to inactive metabolites; minimal kinetic changes in renal/liver disease • Insoluble alkylphenol formulated in lipid emulsion containing egg yolk lecithin (most egg allergies are to egg white antigens, though avoidance prudent with clear hx of egg anaphylaxis) • Lipid emulsion supports bacterial growth linked to sepsis; observe aseptic technique and use within 12 hrs of opening • Prolonged infusion linked to rare but lethal syndrome of arrhythmias, lipemia, metabolic acidosis, rhabdomyolysis FOSPROPOFOL (LUSEDRA) • Water-soluble propofol prodrug, indicated for adult procedural sedation via IV bolus • Give bolus doses >4 min apart to prevent dose stacking while prodrug is transformed • Key features: ↓ pain on injection, slower onset, ↑ duration of action compared to propofol ETOMIDATE (AMIDATE) • Favored for induction in hemodynamically unstable patients due to minimal direct myocardial depression, though may still cause hypotension in hypovolemic patients • Adrenal suppression (blocks hydroxylases in cortisol pathway) limits use as infusion; importance of transient effect after single dose is highly controversial, may affect outcome in sepsis (Intensive Care Med.
