Sample text

Local anesthetics can be used as the sole anesthetic agent for abdominal and lower extremity procedures in the form of a neuraxial block technique (spinal anesthesia or epidural anesthesia). These techniques are overwhelmingly more common for obstetric anesthesia, and are also the technique of choice for joint replacement of the lower extremity in many anesthesia practices. FUNDAMENTAL INFORMATION 33 Local anesthetics have long been used as a part of a multimodal approach for postoperative pain control.

3. A 38-year-old man presents for ventral hernia repair. He had a malignant hyperthermia crisis during a prior surgery. Which of the following inhaled anesthetics would be appropriate for this patient? A. Isoflurane B. Sevoflurane C. Desflurane D. 1 B. Although all agents could be used, sevoflurane would be the preferred choice. Sevoflurane could be used in combination with nitrous oxide. Desflurane has a lower blood:gas solubility that would provide rapid awakening, but desflurane is irritating to inhale and can cause bronchoconstriction in smokers.

A nephrotoxic vinyl compound is formed from sevoflurane, and carbon monoxide is formed from desflurane, and to a lesser extent isoflurane. Nevertheless, the stability of these newer anesthetics when exposed to soda lime is much improved when compared to some of the older anesthetics. When trichloroethylene was exposed to soda lime, the result was significant quantities of phosgene gas. 2. 1. Rapid induction and emergence influence both patient satisfaction, and their ease of use.
