Alfentanil Hydrochloride uses


A short-acting opioid anesthetic and analgesic derivative of fentanyl. It produces an early peak analgesic effect and fast recovery of consciousness. Alfentanil Hydrochloride is effective as an anesthetic during surgery, for supplementation of analgesia during surgical procedures, and as an analgesic for critically ill patients.

Indication: For the management of postoperative pain and the maintenance of general anesthesia.

Alfentanil Hydrochloride is a synthetic opioid analgesic. Alfentanil Hydrochloride interacts predominately with the opioid mu-receptor. These mu-binding sites are discretely distributed in the human brain, spinal cord, and other tissues. In clinical settings, Alfentanil Hydrochloride exerts its principal pharmacologic effects on the central nervous system. Its primary actions of therapeutic value are analgesia and sedation. Alfentanil Hydrochloride may increase the patient's tolerance for pain and decrease the perception of suffering, although the presence of the pain itself may still be recognized. In addition to analgesia, alterations in mood, euphoria and dysphoria, and drowsiness commonly occur. Alfentanil Hydrochloride depresses the respiratory centers, depresses the cough reflex, and constricts the pupils.
