Ethomidate is a sedative and anesthetic remedy that acts quickly depressing the central nervous system and promoting loss of consciousness and is therefore widely used in performing surgeries along with inhaled anesthetics.
Ethomidate is known commercially as Hypnomidate, but can not be purchased in conventional pharmacies, since its use is restricted to healthcare professionals in hospitals.
Etomidate is indicated for the induction of general anesthesia that can be maintained with ianalytic anesthetics.
The mode of use of etomidate should be indicated by an anesthesiologist, because this remedy should only be used by health professionals in hospitals.
The major side effects of etomidate include decreased blood pressure, difficulty breathing, vomiting, nausea and hives on the skin.
Etomidate is contraindicated for patients with hypersensitivity to etomidate or other components of the formula.
