The opioid-tolerant patient can be sedated and difficult to arouse in the PACU, and as a consequence, when woken from sleep, they will describe intense pain. If they receive more opioids to treat their pain, they may be dangerously sedated and still not achieve proper pain control. These patients have a small therapeutic index and the risk may exceed the benefit of the medication. ■ SUMMARY Pharmacodynamics is the study of what drugs do to the body. indd 26 1. What is pharmacodynamics? A) The effect of the drug on the body B) Drugs acting on a cell C) Drugs acting on a molecular level D) Drugs effect on an organ system E) All of the above Answer: E.

Therefore, with oral administration, the liver can remove a portion of drug from the bloodstream before the drug ever makes its way to the systemic circulation and target organs. This is known as first pass clearance. Much of the drug can be lost not only to first pass clearance but also to other factors. Gastric contents are highly acidic and can chemically degrade the drug. Additionally, other compounds in the gut can bind to the drug and prevent its absorption by the small intestine. Absorption can be impaired if the patient’s gut does not work properly or has unusual anatomy.

It’s also equally important to know about the other organs in the body, those that get a smaller fraction of the blood flow. The muscle group gets the next largest fraction of blood flow, followed by the vesselpoor group (tendons, cartilage, and fascia). These tissues will continue to take up propofol as long as their propofol concentration is lower than the plasma level. As they absorb more propofol, the plasma level of propofol goes down, causing it to drop below the level in the vessel-rich group.
