Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This two-part article reviews the human pharmacology of two classes of pharmacologic agents: sedative-hypnotics and opioid (narcotic) analgesics. The major emphasis is on the injectable drugs that play a central role in contemporary anesthesiology. In this issue, Part I addresses the pharmacokinetics of intravenous anesthetics and the clinical pharmacology of sedative-hypnotics. In the next issue, Part II will discuss the clinical pharmacology of opioid agonists.
