*Vessel-rich group: brain, heart, liver, kidney, and endocrine glands
Note: Vessel-poor group (ligaments, tendons, bone, and cartilage, not pictured) comprises 29% of body mass but receives 0% perfusion as a percentage of cardiac output.
Low solubility in blood that facilitates rapid induction and elimination1,6-8
Blood/gas solubility drives emergence from anesthesia6
Due to ULTANE's insolubility in blood, hemodynamic changes may occur more rapidly than with other volatile anesthetics. Excessive decreases in blood pressure or respiratory depression may be related to depth of anesthesia and may be corrected by decreasing the inspired concentration of ULTANE.
