etomidate

 [ĕ-tom´ĭ-dāt]
a sedative and hypnotic, administered intravenously for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia and as a supplement to low-potency anesthetics for maintenance of anesthesia during short operative procedures.

etomidate

/etom·i·date/ (ĕ-tom´ĭ-dāt) a sedative-hypnotic, administered intravenously for the induction and maintenance of anesthesia.

etomidate

[etom′idāt]
a short-acting, hypnotic nonbarbiturate IV agent used for induction of general anesthesia. It has minimal adverse cardiovascular and respiratory effects, thus providing a greater margin of safety in patients with or at risk for heart disease. Adverse effects include transient reduction in adrenal gland cortisol release, pain on injection, and involuntary muscle movements.

etomidate

A general anaesthetic drug. A brand name is Hypnomidate.

etomidate

an intravenous, nonbarbiturate, fast-inducing anesthetic with no analgesic effect. Also causes suppression of adrenal steroidogenesis and may be used in the treatment of hyperadrenocorticism.

Furthermore, recent experimental and theoretical works described that the electrical properties of such composites are dependent on the concentration, type, and aspect ratio of CNTs [18, 19], as well as their state of dispersion and orientation in the matrix [20], Therefore, properly dispersing and orienting CNTs into polymer substrates has attracted lots of interests, and noncovalent connection of physical adsorption, wrapping, and covalent connection of chemical modification like oxidize and amidate, even additional magnetic and electric fields were employed to align CNTs individually in the matrix [21-24].
