  CLINICAL ANESTHESIA LECTURE NOTES 5th Edition (2017) PDF  is Perfect for medical students, junior doctors,This group of drugs is most commonly used
to induce anaesthesia. After intravenous (IV)
injection, these drugs are carried in the blood-
stream into the cerebral circulation. As they are
very lipid soluble, they quickly cross the blood-
brain barrier, resulting in loss of consciousness.
Subsequently the drug is rapidly redistributed
to other tissues (initially the muscles and then
fat), and so the plasma and brain concentra-
tions fall and the patient recovers conscious-
ness. A single bolus of these drugs has a rapid
onset, short duration of action with rapid recov-ery. Despite this, complete elimination of some
drugs, usually by hepatic metabolism, takes
much longer and repeated doses may lead to
accumulation and delayed recovery. This is
seen typically with thiopental and currently the
only exception to this is propofol (see below).
All these drugs cause depression of the cardio-
vascular and respiratory systems. The dose
required to induce anaesthesia is significantly
reduced in those patients who are elderly, frail,
hypovolaemic or have compromise of their car-
diovascular system

anaesthetic nurses and allied health professionals, Lecture Notes Clinical Anaesthesia provides a thorough introduction to the modern principles and practices of clinical anaesthesia.

Full-colour diagrams, photographs and key fact boxes support easy understanding of the theory of anaesthetics allowing confident transfer of information into clinical practice.

This fourth edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect recent developments within the anaesthetics specialty and is fully supported by a wide-range of self-assessments for study and revision purposes together with a range of ‘tips for anaesthesia attachments’ that start each chapter.

Whether you need to develop your knowledge for clinical practice, or refresh that knowledge in the run-up to examinations, Lecture Notes Clinical Anaesthesia will help foster a systematic approach to the clinical situation for all medical students and hospital doctors.
