Description

This session covers the induction agent etomidate. Etomidate (in clinical use since 1972) has a very stable haemodynamic profile. However, due to the inhibition of adrenocortical steroid synthesis after a single dose or infusion, the popularity of etomidate has declined.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Describe the physicochemical structure of etomidate
• Describe the pharmacokinetics of etomidate
• Describe the pharmacodynamic effects of etomidate on the cardiovascular, respiratory and central nervous systems
• Describe the indications and contraindications of etomidate for routine use in anaesthesia
• Discuss the endocrine-related effects of etomidate
