Chapter 3 highlights some of the landmark papers in the development and clinical pharmacology of inhaled and intravenous general anaesthetic drugs. There are three sections: inhaled anaesthetics, intravenous anaesthetics, and general anaesthesia. In some cases the choice of a single landmark paper is clear, but in others it was more difficult to select a single paper to recognize a major development; some of these are included as ‘Related references’. The publications included were chosen for their impact on the development of the clinical pharmacology of general anaesthesia. The impact of these publications on the practice of anaesthesia is enduring.
