Difference between Morphine and Synthetic Analgesics in their Actions on Ganglionic Transmission

Article metrics

Abstract

THE analgesic actions of certain new synthetic compounds, including pethidine and amidone, have been extensively compared with that of morphine1. It is assumed that this analgesic action is mainly due to a central effect, although the possible local anæsthetic properties of these compounds have not been investigated.
