Subsequently, Kalow [6] covered the whole field for the first time in 1962 in his book Pharmacogenetics — Heredity and the Response to Drugs. In the late 1980s, the occurrence of diplopia and blurred vision after administration of the antiarrhythmic/oxytocic drug, sparteine, and severe orthostatic hypotension after treatment with the antihypertensive agent, debrisoquine, led to the discovery of a genetic polymorphism that affects the drug-metabolizing enzyme cytochrome P450 2D6 (CYP2D6) [7]. This was a major breakthrough towards understanding the molecular genetic basis for inherited differences in drug disposition and metabolism.

The gradual increase in serum concentrations seen during cardiopulmonary bypass after the initial fall as has been observed for midazolam, etomidate and sufentanil is usually explained by redistribution of the drug from tissues to the serum and/or a decrease in its elimination. The latter can be caused by impairment of renal or hepatic clearance resulting from lowered perfusion and hypothermia. The same phenomena are thought to explain why in the post-bypass period a concentration increase occurs, or at least a slower decrease than expected; this has been observed for drugs such as midazolam, etomidate and fentanyl.
