Future Application in Anesthesia: Role of Nanomedicine

Nanomedicine is the medical application of nanotechnology. Nanomedicine ranges from the medical applications of nanomaterials and biological devices to nanoelectronic biosensors. Different types of injectable nanoparticles, including metallic nanoparticles, polymeric nanocarriers, dendrimers, liposomes, niosomes, and lipid nanoparticles, have been employed to load drugs for organ delivery. Nanoparticles used for organ delivery offer some benefits over conventional formulations, including increased solubility, enhanced stability, improved epithelium permeability and bioavailability, prolonged half-life, tumor targeting, and minimal side effects. In recent years, the concept of using injectable nanocarriers as vehicles for drug delivery has attracted increasing attention. However, the roles of nanocarriers on anesthesia have not yet been explored thoroughly. This topic highlights recent developments using nanomedical approaches for drug targeting to the organs. We principally focus on the nanomedical application in anesthesia.
