Notes

Paracetamol overdose can cause severe hepatic failure due to the effects of alkylating metabolites. Though normally removed by conjugation with glutathione, stores are rapidly depleted in overdose.

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents should be generally avoided in patients with renal dysfunction, GI bleeding or coagulopathy.

Ketamine is a derivative of phencyclidine used as an intravenous anaesthetic agent. In subanaesthetic doses it is a powerful analgesic. It has several advantages over opiates in that it is associated with good airway maintenance, allows spontaneous respiration and provides cardiovascular stimulation. It is also a bronchodilator.

Nitrous oxide is a powerful, short acting analgesic used to cover short, painful procedures. It may be useful when delivered via an intermittent positive pressure breathing system as an adjunct to chest physiotherapy. Nitrous oxide should not be used in cases of undrained pneumothorax since it may diffuse into the pneumothorax resulting in tension.
