Chapters cover intravenous anaesthetic infusions, opiate infusions, muscle relaxant infusions, total intravenous anaesthesia and postoperative analgesia. Of special note is a detailed description of the pharmacokinetics of vasoactive drugs administered by intravenous infusion, including the potent sedative-hypnotic drugs propofol, midazolam, etomidate, methohexital and thiopental and the dissociative drug, ketamine. Included is pharmacokinetic data on fentanyl, alfentanil, sufentanil, meperidine and other opiates. There are also guidelines for the administration of neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) by continuous infusion, as well as specific techniques for administering total intravenous anaesthesia (TIVA).
