    Anaesthetic vs analgesic

    Advertisements



    Hi guys, studying for pharmacology, I can't understand something:

    If halothane is causing a fast anaesthesia- lack of consciousness and pain, why do we need to supplement it with analgesics, or anti emetics, or what ever.

    in other words: if you depress the CNS of the person, why does he still feel pain, vomit and such?

    Halothane itself is an analgesic given to the patient to reduce pain.
