  • neostigmine
  • Spontaneous recovery from neuromuscular block occurs through redistribution, buffered diffusion, or metabolism of the neuromuscular blocking agent (NMBA) administered (1) Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (e.g. neostigmine) are often given at the end of surgery to speed the rate of recovery from non-depolarizing NMBAs.

  • routine
  • Therapeutic neuromuscular blockade is a routine part of intraoperative anesthetic management for many surgeries and is occasionally appropriate in the ICU in order to facilitate certain forms of mechanical ventilation, prevent patient movements that may harm the patient, facilitate procedures, decrease oxygen consumption, or prevent muscle spasm in certain diseases.

  • patient
  • By preventing active expiration, and/or patient ventilator dyssynchrony, neuromuscular blockade may create a more homogenous distribution of airway pressures and tidal volumes, preventing barotrauma/volutrauma and 'atelectrauma' resulting in less ventilator-induced lung injury. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • This class will empower nurses with the ability to safely administer and monitor a patient receiving conscious sedation and/or neuromuscular blockade. (cvent.com)
  • Target Audience: RNs responsibile for administration and care of the patient receiving conscious sedation and neuromuscular blockade. (cvent.com)
  • 15) If these conventional agents are given to patient with a higher degree of neuromuscular blockade, inadequate reversal may ensue. (signavitae.com)
  • March 2006 25 REGISTRAR The relationship between intra-operative entropy of the EEG and non-depolarizing neuromuscular blockade: A descriptive study HW van Rooyen Background Entropy is based on the extent of order in both the cortical EEG and facial EMG (FEMG) signals, measured from the patient's forehead.

  • Condition
  • Treatment condition for this arm is Standard NMB (depth of blockade at a targeted Train of Four [TOF] ratio of 10%)/Standard insufflation pressure (starting pressure of 12 mmHg). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • results
  • These findings suggest that neuromuscular blockade results in significantly greater increases in POP-Q examination measurements compared with those in the office, with the increase most pronounced apically. (ovid.com)
