By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the equilibrium that exists between the alveoli, blood and brain during onset, maintenance and offset of anaesthesia
• Explain how equipment factors can affect onset and offset of anaesthesia
• Discuss the effect of patient physiology on inhalational agent uptake
• Explain how an inhalational agent’s physical and chemical properties influence its pharmacokinetics
• Draw wash-in and wash-out curves for commonly used inhalational agents
• Describe the kinetics of nitrous oxide and explain the concentration and second gas effects
