Medikamente zur intravenösen Narkoseinduktion: Etomidat
TLDR
While propofol has enjoyed increasing frequency of use over the last three decades and is currently regarded as the gold standard in numerous clinics, thiopental is a noteworthy alternative apart from its elimination kinetics.
The effect of etomidate on adrenal function in critical illness: a systematic review
TLDR
There is an increased rate of AI and mortality in critically ill patients who received etomidate and non-etomidate anesthesia, and this results in an increased risk ratio (RR) for AI.
Acute Adrenal Insufficiency After a Single Dose of Etomidate
TLDR
Acute adrenal insufficiency should be suspected in intensive care unit patients who have undergone general anesthesia with etomidate induction and present with hypotension refractory to standard vasopressor administration and in patients who may not tolerate wide variance in heart rate or blood pressure.
New approaches to the treatment of sepsis.
Adrenal insufficiency in critically ill patients with human immunodeficiency virus
TLDR
There is a high incidence of adrenal Insufficiency in critically ill HIV-infected patients that varies with the criteria used to diagnose adrenal insufficiency, and the LD-ACTH stimulation test is more sensitive than the high-dose test for diagnosing adrenalinsufficiency.

Pro/con debate: Is etomidate safe in hemodynamically unstable critically ill patients?
TLDR
This review presents a pro/con case for using etomidate in hemodynamically unstable critically ill patients and provides guidance for alternative induction techniques and when the use of etomidates might be justified despite these concerns.
Secretion of cortisol and aldosterone as a vulnerable target for adrenal endocrine disruption — screening of 30 selected chemicals in the human H295R cell model
TLDR
It is shown that adrenal steroidogenesis is a vulnerable target for toxic insult and that the H295R assay is a useful in vitro model for screening purposes.
Pharmacological management of severe Cushing’s syndrome: the role of etomidate
TLDR
The initial development of etomidate as an anesthetic agent, its subsequent development as a treatment for CS, and the recent advances in dosing and drug development that dissociate sedative-hypnotic and adrenostatic drug actions to facilitate CS treatment in non-critical care settings are discussed.
