Description :
Sodium thiopental, also known asSodium Pentothal, thiopental,thiopentone, is a rapid-onset short-actingbarbiturategeneral anesthetic. Sodium thiopental is an ultra-short-acting barbiturate and has been used commonly in the induction phase of general anesthesia. Following intravenous injection the drug rapidly reaches the brain and causes unconsciousness within 3045 seconds. At one minute, the drug attains a peak concentration of about 60% of the total dose in the brain. Thereafter, the drug distributes to the rest of the body and in about 510 minutes the concentration is low enough in the brain such that consciousness returns.Sodium thiopental is used intravenously for the purposes of euthanasia. Thiopental (Pentothal) is also used as a truth serum to weaken the resolve of the subject and make them more compliant to pressure. The barbiturates as a class decrease higher cortical brain functioning.
