What is Etomidate
Imidazole derivative anesthetic and hypnotic with little effect on blood gases, ventilation, or the cardiovascular system. It has been proposed as an induction anesthetic. (PubChem)
Etomidate mechanism of action
Etomidate binds at a distinct binding site associated with a Cl sup – /sup ionopore at the GABA sub A /sub receptor, increasing the duration of time for which the Cl sup – /sup ionopore is open. The post-synaptic inhibitory effect of GABA in the thalamus is, therefore, prolonged.
