Anesthetics, Dissociative

Intravenous Anesthetics that induce a state of sedation, immobility, Amnesia, and marked Analgesia. Subjects may experience a strong feeling of dissociation from the Environment. The condition produced is similar to Neuroleptanalgesia, but is brought about by the administration of a single drug.
