1-581 (2(0-chlorophenyl) -2-methylC amino-cyclohexanone) (fig. 1) , which has recently been given the generic name, ketamine, was shown to elevate arterial pressure by McCarthy and associates1 in dogs, and later in man by Domino and cm workers.2 Recently, more complete cardiovascular studies in humans, published by Kreuscher and Gauch3 and Virtue and assoc ia te~ ,~ indicate that the pressor response observed was due to an increased cardiac output. Unfortunately, these authors used only a… Expand

Figures and Topics from this paper

Involvement of the Sympathetic Nervous System in the Pressor Response to Ketamine
It is demonstrated that ketamine had a direct doserelated depressive effect on the heart in vitro and that these stitnulatory effects of ketmine appear only with smaller doses and that higher doses produce a depression of the cardiovascular system. Expand
The cardiorespiratory effects of Althesin and ketamine *
The cardiorespiratory effects of the recently introduced steroid induction agent Althesin are similar to those of the intravenous barbiturates methohexitone and thiopentone, and their effects when given under similar conditions to fit unpremedicated patients awaiting surgery are compared. Expand
Pressor responses of ketamine and circulating biogenic amines.
THE new “dissociative” anaesthetic ketamine increases arterial pressure, heart rate and output when given intravenously to human subjects1, has biphasic effects on blood pressure in dogs2, is aExpand
Evidence for Central Adrenergic Action of Ketamine: Report of a Case
Since the introduction of ketamine (CIS 581) by Domino and associates, numerous reports have appeared, to explain various aspects of the cardiovascular responses observed with this phencyclidine derivative. Expand
Up-regulation of noradrenaline transporter in response to prolonged exposure to ketamine
It is demonstrated that prolonged exposure to ketamine increases the functional activity of NAT and its mRNA, which may imply that ketamine negatively modulates sympathetic nervous activity through an up-regulation of NAT during long anaesthesia. Expand
Effects of ketamine on renal nerve activity, arterial pressure and heart rate in rats.
The finding that in the nerve intact state ketamine produced the characteristically biphasic response of RNA could be explained by the following mechanisms: (1) ketamine depresses the vasomotor center causing the initial decrease in RNA; (2) ketamines Depresses the inhibitory effects of baroreflex causing the successive increase in RNA.

Etoxadrol (CL‐1848C) A New Dissociative Anesthetic: Studies in Primates and Other Species
L-l848C, the dextrorotatory isomer of c 2-ethyl-2-phenyl-4(2-piperidyl) (1,3dioxolane hydrochloride) from the dace mate, is a new agent which in primates has anesthetic properties similar to those ofExpand
A comparison of some cardiorespiratory effects of althesin and ketamine when used for induction of anaesthesia in patients with cardiac disease.
Cardiorespiratory effects of ketamine and Althesin were measured in two groups of premedicated patients with cardiac disease and the changes following the second dose of ketamines were opposite to those following the first dose. Expand
In vitro studies on rat aortic strips and portal vein segments suggest that rat plasma concentrations of ketamine commonly associated with induction of surgical anaesthesia can induce, directly, relaxation and contractile potentiation of vascular muscle. Expand
Cardiac transplantation: a prospective comparison of ketamine and sufentanil for anesthetic induction.
Since perioperative morbidity and mortality did not differ between groups, both ketamine and sufentanil are acceptable drugs for the anesthetic induction for cardiac transplantation and this conclusion may not be applicable to the patient with a cardiomyopathy undergoing noncardiac surgery.

Pharmacologic effects of CI‐581, a new dissociative anesthetic, in man
The results indicate that this drug is an effective analgesic and anesthetic agent in doses of 1.0 to 2.0 mg per kilogram, and it is proposed that the words “dissociative anesthetic” be used to describe the mental state produced by this drug. Expand
Initial Ventricular Impulse: A Potential Key to Cardiac Evaluation
Direct and continuous records of acceleration, the outflow rate of blood, and the rates of change of ventricular and arterialpressure demonstrate that ejection of blood from both ventricles (particularly the left) is more like striking a piston with a mallet than like squeezing blood out of a chamber.
