Abstract

Laborit’s concept of “neuroplegia” was, perhaps, the first attempt to move away from total central nervous system depression by employing a combination of tranquilizing agents and narcotic analgesics for the selective inhibition of cellular, autonomic, and endocrine systems known to be activated in response to stress. Unfortunately, this drug-induced homeostatic imbalance frequently resulted in circulatory disturbances, which explains the reluctance of many physicians to accept this new concept of pain control during surgery.
