Etomidate-d: etomidate is a fast acting and short-lived induction agent that produces minimal cardiopulmonary effects, and is therefore the anesthetic of choice in patients with heart disease. heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure, as well as respiratory rate are all maintained throughout anesthesia. due to its short duration of action, etomidate is ideal to conduct brief studies such as examination and diagnostics on patients in extreme distress from cardiopulmonary disease that could easily die with any manipulation.
