NSAIDs inhibit the enzyme cyclooxygenase (COX) which catalyzes the production of prostaglandins, prostacyclins, and thromboxane A2 from arachidonic acid. There are currently two recognized isoforms of cyclooxygenase, COX-1 and COX-2. , 2005). COX-1 is a constitutive enzyme responsible for normal physiologic functions such as maintaining a gastro-protective mucosal barrier and renal blood flow, while the COX-2 enzyme is induced and responsible for producing prostaglandin mediators associated with swelling, fever, and pain.
Commercial solutions commonly contain propylene glycol, which can cause pain upon injection and thrombophlebitis. For this reason, the subcutaneous and intramuscular routes of injection are not recommended. Inhalation Anesthetics Isoflurane and sevoflurane are volatile inhalant anesthetics with low blood/gas solubility in blood and body tissues. Both agents are dose-dependent CNS depressants used for induction and maintenance of general anesthesia. Due to their intrinsic low solubility, rapid inductions, rapid changes in anesthetic depth, and fast recoveries are associated with both agents.
In addition, a state-controlled substance license is usually required, yet this varies between each state depending upon specific state laws and regulations. For those states requiring a controlled substance license, the DEA will not grant a registration until a state license is first acquired since the DEA registration is predicated upon the laws and regulations of the state in which the registrant resides.
