Anesthetics (general, local, regional) are
used to induce anesthesia during surgery, childbirth, dental or diagnostic
procedures, and other treatments
anesthesia is administered parenterally or by inhalation to produce progressive
and reversible stages of CNS depression
anesthetics (topical, injectable) produce anesthesia in small, localized areas
Regional anesthetics are used for larger areas
adjuncts are given preoperatively, intraoperatively,
or postoperatively to aid in the anesthetic process
Anesthetic adjuncts (antianxiety
agents and sedative/hypnotics, anticholinergics, narcotic analgesics, neuromuscular blocking agents)
are used to enhance anesthetic agents.
