Example text

Iv anaesthesia produced with chloral hydrate by Oré: 1872. ◗ ether versus chloroform: the former was favoured in England and northern USA, the latter in Scotland and southern USA. Other agents introduced (see Inhalational anaesthetic agents). Boyle machine described 1917. ◗ iv anaesthesia popularised by Weese, Lundy and Waters: 1930s (see Intravenous anaesthetic agents). Neuromuscular blockade introduced by Griffith: 1942. Halothane introduced 1956. ◗ UK pioneers: Hewitt, Macewen, Magill, Rowbotham, Macintosh (first UK professor), Hewer, Organe.

Forced alkaline diuresis. ◗ potassium/chloride depletion leading to acid urine production. ● Primary change: increased bicarbonate/decreased hydrogen ion. ● Compensation: ◗ hypoventilation: reaches its maximum within 24 h, usually with an upper limit for arterial PCO2 of 7–8 kPa (50–60 mmHg). 3 kPa (1 mmol/l per 10 mmHg above 40), although the level of compensatory change is less predictable than in metabolic acidosis. ◗ decreased renal acid secretion. ● Effects: ◗ confusion. ◗ paraesthesia/tetany (reduced free ionised calcium concentration due to altered protein-binding).

Phosphodiesterase inhibitor, a mixture of theophylline and ethylenediamine. Much more soluble than theophylline alone, hence its use iv. Used as a bronchodilator drug (but not as first-line therapy), and as an inotropic drug, especially in paediatrics. Causes bronchodilatation, increased diaphragmatic contractility, vasodilatation, increased cardiac output (direct effect on the heart), diuresis (direct effect on the kidney), and CNS stimulation. ● Dosage: ◗ 100–500 mg orally bd–qds (depending on the preparation), usually as slow-release preparations.
