Blood gas partition coefficient of anaesthetic agent tells about:
|A||Potency of agent|
|B||Solubility of anaesthetic agent in blood|
|C||Time lag of induction of anaesthesia|
|D||All of the above|
Solubility of anaesthetic agent in blood
Blood gas partition coefficient, given by the ratio of the concentration of the anaesthetic in blood to that in the gas phase at equilibrium is the index of solubility of that anaesthetic agent in blood.
