Despite the lack of analgesic properties in larger mammals, Green et al. (1981) found that short-term, light surgical anesthesia lasting 12–15 minutes could be produced in the mouse with either metomidate (50 mg/kg) or etomidate (30 mg/kg) given IP; side effects included jerking and twitching movements, but cardiorespiratory depression was minimal. , 1981). , 1987). Red-necked ostriches (Struthio camelus) darted with metomidate (18 mg/kg) showed no signs of sedation (Ostrowski and Ancrenaz, 1995).

This effect may contribute to decreased systemic blood pressure that is sometimes observed with intravenous (IV) administration of barbiturates or associated with barbiturate overdose. High doses of barbiturates decrease sensitivity of postsynaptic membranes to acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. Barbiturates decrease cerebral blood flow (CBF) and thus decrease intracranial pressure (ICP); cerebral vascular reactivity to carbon dioxide is preserved (Ilkiw, 1992). Although amelioration of neuronal damage through decreased cerebral metabolic rate is provided by barbiturates following a focal ischemic event (Hall and Murdoch, 1990), the ability of barbiturates to improve brain survival after global cerebral ischemia is unlikely, as these drugs are only effective when the EEG remains active and metabolic suppression is possible.
