The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.
Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.

Monoquaternary homolog of PANCURONIUM. A non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent with shorter duration of action than pancuronium. Its lack of significant cardiovascular effects and lack of dependence on good kidney function for elimination as well as its short duration of action and easy reversibility provide advantages over, or alternatives to, other established neuromuscular blocking agents.
A bis-quaternary steroid that is a competitive nicotinic antagonist. As a neuromuscular blocking agent it is more potent than CURARE but has less effect on the circulatory system and on histamine release.

A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
The communication from a NEURON to a target (neuron, muscle, or secretory cell) across a SYNAPSE. In chemical synaptic transmission, the presynaptic neuron releases a NEUROTRANSMITTER that diffuses across the synaptic cleft and binds to specific synaptic receptors, activating them. The activated receptors modulate specific ion channels and/or second-messenger systems in the postsynaptic cell. In electrical synaptic transmission, electrical signals are communicated as an ionic current flow across ELECTRICAL SYNAPSES.

Drugs used to induce drowsiness or sleep or to reduce psychological excitement or anxiety.
Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures.

Gases or volatile liquids that vary in the rate at which they induce anesthesia; potency; the degree of circulation, respiratory, or neuromuscular depression they produce; and analgesic effects. Inhalation anesthetics have advantages over intravenous agents in that the depth of anesthesia can be changed rapidly by altering the inhaled concentration. Because of their rapid elimination, any postoperative respiratory depression is of relatively short duration. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p173)
The act of breathing with the LUNGS, consisting of INHALATION, or the taking into the lungs of the ambient air, and of EXHALATION, or the expelling of the modified air which contains more CARBON DIOXIDE than the air taken in (Blakiston's Gould Medical Dictionary, 4th ed.).

Are changes in the evoked electromyogram during anaesthesia without neuromuscular blocking agents caused by failure of supramaximal nerve stimulation? (1/235)

The evoked electromyogram often decreases during anaesthesia in the absence of neuromuscular block. We have measured the electromyogram of the first dorsal interosseous muscle evoked by train-of-four stimulation of the ulnar nerve in 63 patients undergoing anaesthesia for minor surgery. We used Medicotest P-00-S electrodes, a Datex Relaxograph and a current sink in the stimulating leads in parallel with the current path through the patient. The current sink was used to shunt some of the maximum available output current from the Relaxograph while maintaining the supramaximal stimulus current passing through the patient. After 30 min of anaesthesia, when the muscle response to train-of-four was stable, the ulnar nerve stimulus current was increased by reducing the proportion shunted through the current sink. The electromyographic response did not change during the study in 13 patients. In the remaining 50 patients, the response decreased to 78.4% (SD 27.1%, range 7.5-95.0%) of baseline values over the first 20 min of anaesthesia. In 22 of these patients, the electromyographic response increased from 71.4 (SD 22.6)% to 92.3 (9.5)% of baseline responses when the stimulus current was increased by 12.3 (2.4) mA, while in the remaining 28 patients the response decreased to 83.7 (10.6)% and did not increase with increasing stimulus current. These results suggest that loss of supramaximal stimulation is partly responsible for the observed changes in the evoked electromyogram during anaesthesia.  (+info)

Antagonism of vecuronium-induced neuromuscular block in patients pretreated with magnesium sulphate: dose-effect relationship of neostigmine. (2/235)

We have investigated the dose-effect relationship of neostigmine in antagonizing vecuronium-induced neuromuscular block with and without magnesium sulphate (MgSO4) pretreatment. Neuromuscular block was assessed by electromyography with train-of-four (TOF) stimulation. First, we determined neostigmine-induced recovery in patients pretreated with MgSO4 (group A) or saline (group B) (n = 12 each). The height of T1, 5 min after neostigmine, was 43 (7)% in group A and 65 (6)% in group B (P < 0.01). Respective values after 10 min were 59 (7)% and 83 (5)% (P < 0.01). TOF ratio, 5 min after neostigmine, was 29 (6)% in group A and 29 (5)% in group B. Respective values after 10 min were 38 (11)% and 51 (7)% (P < 0.01). To gain insight into the mechanisms leading to delayed recovery after MgSO4, we calculated assisted recovery, defined as neostigmine-induced recovery minus mean spontaneous recovery. Spontaneous recovery was assessed in another 24 patients. Patients in group C received MgSO4/vecuronium and patients in group D vecuronium only (n = 12 each). Five minutes after neostigmine, assisted recovery was 22 (7)% in the MgSO4 pretreated patients and 28 (6)% in controls (P < 0.05). Ten minutes after neostigmine, values were 24 (7)% and 22 (6)%. Maximum assisted recovery was not influenced by MgSO4 pretreatment (27 (6)% in group A and 32 (6)% in group B) and time to maximum effect was comparable between groups: 6 (4-10) min and 7 (5-8) min, respectively. We conclude that neostigmine-induced recovery was attenuated in patients treated with MgSO4. This was mainly a result of slower spontaneous recovery and not decreased response to neostigmine.  (+info)

SI neuron response variability is stimulus tuned and NMDA receptor dependent. (3/235)

Skin brushing stimuli were used to evoke spike discharge activity in single skin mechanoreceptive afferents (sMRAs) and anterior parietal cortical (SI) neurons of anesthetized monkeys (Macaca fascicularis). In the initial experiments 10-50 presentations of each of 8 different stimulus velocities were delivered to the linear skin path from which maximal spike discharge activity could be evoked. Mean rate of spike firing evoked by each velocity (MFR) was computed for the time period during which spike discharge activity exceeded background, and an across-presentations estimate of mean firing rate (MFR) was generated for each velocity. The magnitude of the trial-by-trial variation in the response (estimated as CV; where CV = standard deviation in MFR/MFR) was determined for each unit at each velocity. MFR for both sMRAs and SI neurons (MFRsMRA and MFRSI, respectively) increased monotonically with velocity over the range 1-100 cm/s. At all velocities the average estimate of intertrial response variation for SI neurons (CVSI) was substantially larger than the corresponding average for sMRAs (CVsMRA). Whereas CVsMRA increased monotonically over the range 1-100 cm/s, CVSI decreased progressively with velocity over the range 1-10 cm/s, and then increased with velocity over the range 10-100 cm/s. The position of the skin brushing stimulus in the receptive field (RF) was varied in the second series of experiments. It was found that the magnitude of CVSI varied systematically with stimulus position in the RF: that is, CVSI was lowest for a particular velocity and direction of stimulus motion when the skin brushing stimulus traversed the RF center, and CVSI increased progressively as the distance between the stimulus path and the RF center increased. In the third series of experiments, either phencylidine (PCP; 100-500 microg/kg) or ketamine (KET; 0.5-7.5 mg/kg) was administered intravenously (iv) to assess the effect of block of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors on SI neuron intertrial response variation. The effects of PCP on both CVSI and MFRSI were transient, typically with full recovery occurring in 1-2 h after drug injection. The effects of KET on CVSI and MFRSI were similar to those of PCP, but were shorter in duration (15-30 min). PCP and KET administration consistently was accompanied by a reduction of CVSI. The magnitude of the reduction of CVSI by PCP or KET was associated with the magnitude of CVSI before drug administration: that is, the larger the predrug CVSI, the larger the reduction in CVSI caused by PCP or KET. PCP and KET exerted variable effects on SI neuron mean firing rate that could differ greatly from one neuron to the next. The results are interpreted to indicate that SI neuron intertrial response variation is 1) stimulus tuned (intertrial response variation is lowest when the skin stimulus moves at 10 cm/s and traverses the neuron's RF center) and 2) NMDA receptor dependent (intertrial response variation is least when NMDA receptor activity contributes minimally to the response, and increases as the contribution of NMDA receptors to the response increases).  (+info)

Electromyographic assessment of neuromuscular block at the gastrocnemius muscle. (4/235)

We have assessed neuromuscular block electromyographically at the gastrocnemius muscle and compared it with that at the abductor digiti minimi muscle in 60 adult patients undergoing cervical spine surgery under general anaesthesia. All patients were in the prone position. After vecuronium 0.2 mg kg-1, times to onset of neuromuscular block at the gastrocnemius and abductor digiti minimi muscles were mean 147 (SD 24) and 145 (14) s, respectively (ns). Times to return of the first response of the post-tetanic count (PTC1) at the gastrocnemius and abductor digiti minimi muscles were 27.7 (5.6) and 37.0 (5.9) min, respectively (P = 0.0001). Times to return of the first response of the train-of-four (TOF) at the gastrocnemius and abductor digiti minimi muscles were 41.0 (9.1) and 49.9 (8.7) min, respectively (P = 0.01). Recovery of PTC, T1/T0 and TOF ratio at the gastrocnemius muscle were significantly faster than at the abductor digiti minimi muscle.  (+info)

Comparison of intubating conditions after rapacuronium (Org 9487) and succinylcholine following rapid sequence induction in adult patients. (5/235)

We have assessed intubating conditions provided by rapacuronium (Org 9487) and succinylcholine after rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia in adult patients undergoing elective surgery. We studied 335 patients, ASA I and II, in five centres. Two hundred and thirty-four subjects with normal body weight and 101 obese subjects were allocated randomly to one of four treatment groups differing in the neuromuscular blocking drug administered (rapacuronium 1.5 mg kg-1 or succinylcholine 1 mg kg-1) and in the technique used for induction of anaesthesia (fentanyl 2-3 micrograms kg-1 with thiopental 3-6 mg kg-1 or alfentanil 20 micrograms kg-1 with propofol 1.5-2 mg kg-1). Intubation was started at 50 s by an anaesthetist blinded to the drugs used. Intubating conditions were clinically acceptable (excellent or good) in 89.4% of patients after rapacuronium and in 97.4% after succinylcholine (P = 0.004), the estimated difference being 8.1% (95% confidence interval (CI) 2.0-14.1%). Neither anaesthetic technique nor subject group had an influence on intubating conditions. After intubation, the maximum increase in heart rate averaged 23.1 (SD 25.4%) and 9.4 (26.1%) after rapacuronium and succinylcholine, respectively (P < 0.001). Pulmonary side effects (bronchospasm and increased airway pressure) were observed in 10.7% (95% CI 5.8-17%) and 4.1% (95% CI 1.3-8.8%) of patients given rapacuronium and succinylcholine, respectively (P = 0.021). We conclude that after rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia in adults, clinically acceptable intubating conditions were achieved less frequently after rapacuronium 1.5 mg kg-1 than after succinylcholine.  (+info)

Rapid and reversible effects of activity on acetylcholine receptor density at the neuromuscular junction in vivo. (6/235)

Quantitative fluorescence imaging was used to study the regulation of acetylcholine receptor (AChR) number and density at neuromuscular junctions in living adult mice. At fully functional synapses, AChRs have a half-life of about 14 days. However, 2 hours after neurotransmission was blocked, the half-life of the AChRs was now less than a day; the rate was 25 times faster than before. Most of the lost receptors were not quickly replaced. Direct muscle stimulation or restoration of synaptic transmission inhibited this process. AChRs that were removed from nonfunctional synapses resided for hours in the perijunctional membrane before being locally internalized. Dispersed AChRs could also reaggregate at the junction once neurotransmission was restored. The rapid and reversible alterations in AChR density at the neuromuscular junction in vivo parallel changes thought to occur in the central nervous system at synapses undergoing potentiation and depression.  (+info)

Spontaneous or neostigmine-induced recovery after maintenance of neuromuscular block with Org 9487 (rapacuronium) or rocuronium following an initial dose of Org 9487. (7/235)

We have examined spontaneous and neostigmine-induced recovery after an initial dose of Org 9487 1.5 mg kg-1 followed by three repeat doses of Org 9487, a 30-min infusion of Org 9487 or two incremental doses of rocuronium. Mean clinical duration after incremental doses of Org 9487 0.5 mg kg-1 increased from 12.3 (SD 3.4) min to 14.0 (4.0) and 15.9 (5.9) min (P < 0.01), and after rocuronium from 14.4 (5.2) min to 19.2 (5.9) min (P < 0.01). Times for spontaneous recovery from a T1 of 25% to a TOF ratio of 0.8 after the last bolus dose of Org 9487 and after a 30-min infusion were 72.4 (16.5) and 66.1 (26.9) min compared with 36.7 (15.8) min in the group receiving reocuronium. These times were significantly reduced to 9.9 (4.5), 8.6 (6.1) and 5.7 (2.5) min, respectively, after neostigmine administration at a T1 of 25% (P < 0.05). We conclude that administration of Org 9487 by repeat bolus doses or infusion was associated with slow spontaneous recovery but neostigmine administration resulted in adequate recovery in less than 10 min.  (+info)

Anaesthesia for strabismus surgery: a regional survey. (8/235)

An increase in the demand by local surgeons for neuromuscular block during strabismus surgery, and the forced duction test in particular, led us to review the literature and conduct a regional survey of anaesthetic techniques used. A questionnaire was distributed to 379 anaesthetists in the region and 264 responses were received. The results demonstrated that 55% of paediatric patients and 66% of adult patients may have been operated on under suboptimal conditions; residual tone may have been present in the extraocular muscles during forced duction testing and strabismus correction.  (+info)

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE::. To assess the efficacy and safety of early neuromuscular blockade in reducing mortality and morbidity in patients with moderate-severe ARDS, in comparison to a control group with no routine early neuromuscular blockade (NMB).. PRIMARY HYPOTHESIS:. Early neuromuscular blockade will improve mortality prior to discharge home before day 90, in patients with moderate-severe ARDS.. The trial will accrue a maximum of 1408 patients. Patients will be recruited from the emergency departments, intensive care units and other acute care areas of the PETAL Network Clinical Centers and randomized to the active (NMB) or control. The overall strategy is to screen, consent, and enroll early, every newly intubated, acutely ill or post-operative, eligible patient at each site, using clinically obtained pulse oximetry and blood gases.. By preventing active expiration, and/or patient ventilator dyssynchrony, neuromuscular blockade may create a more homogenous distribution of airway pressures and ...
The FDA recently approved the first selective reversal agent for rocuronium, known as sugammadex. Already in use in Europe since 2008, sugammadexs approval in the U.S. was delayed due to concerns about hypersensitivity. Once U.S.-based trials showed the risk of anaphylaxis was low (0.3%), the drug was approved in 2015. Here we will review basics of this novel drug and discuss ways it may impact emergency airway management. Marketed under the brand name Bridion, sugammadex is currently approved for use in patients undergoing surgery. It is given to reverse neuromuscular blockade from rocuronium or vecuronium in patients whose surgical case ends earlier than anticipated. It can also be used in extubated patients with poor respiratory effort from residual neuromuscular blockade. Most importantly for us, however, it is also approved for emergent reversal of neuromuscular blockade in a cant intubate, cant oxygenate scenario in the OR. Although the package insert does not specifically address ED ...

Based on simple clinical and biochemical parameters of nutritional status, seventy adult patients scheduled for elective surgery under general anaesthesia were categorized as having normal nutrition, mild, moderate or severe malnutrition or obesity. Under anaesthesia, evoked responses on train-of-four nerve stimulation were recorded every 15 seconds on a mechanomyograph. Vecuronium 0.1 mg.kg-1 was used to achieve neuromuscular blockade. Compared with patients having normal nutrition, the time to onset of action was significantly prolonged in the moderate and severely malnourished groups; the time to no response on train-of-four stimulation was delayed only in severely malnourished groups (P | 0.001). The duration of action of the initial dose was shorter in the moderate and severely malnourished groups. The obese group had an earlier onset of action and a longer duration of action compared with patients of normal nutrition (P | 0.001). No significant difference in recovery time to a train-of-four ratio
Observing the similar mortality in ACURASYSs control arm (40.7%) with ROSEs (42.8%) with similar severity of ARDS, the huge variance in the use of prone positioning, and the absence of other good reasons, that is a possibility that must be considered.. Also plausible is that continuous neuromuscular blockade doesnt help at all, and ACURASYSs positive findings were due to unmeasurable bias (like care teams noticing which patients were paralyzed). This would be a disappointing but familiar repetition of other practice-changing trials that were contradicted by larger subsequent studies.. Thanks to ROSE, it does seem clear that continuous neuromuscular blockade is not superior to as-needed use in supine ventilated patients with ARDS, and it may cause cardiovascular harm, which is very helpful to know. (Of course, any cardiovascular harm was insufficient to change all-cause mortality, meaning the practice can be considered appropriate on an individualized basis.). Now, it would be good to see ...
It is widely accepted that the ability to sustain a 5-s head-lift is associated with sufficient strength in otherwise healthy subjects to protect the airway against obstruction and aspiration of oral contents. [18] There is less agreement on the correlation between a sustained head-lift and the TOF fade ratio at the adductor pollicis muscle. El Mikatti et al. [15] found that seven of seven subjects were able to sustain a head-lift at a TOF ratio of 0.50 measured on EMG. Dupuis et al. [19] reported similar results (six of seven) using mechanomyography, but they found that when EMG monitoring was used that the TOF ratio had to attain a value of 0.70 before all subjects had a sustained head-lift. Sharpe et al. [20] using EMG found that head-lift was uniformly maintained at a TOF ratio greater or equal to 0.60. However, Engbaek et al. [21](also using EMG) concluded that the TOF ratio had to recover to 0.80 before all patients could sustain head-lift for 5 s, and head-lift could not be sustained for ...
General anesthesia is a drug-induced reversible state where neuromuscular blockade (NMB), hypnosis, and analgesia (jointly denoted by depth of anesthesia - DoA) are guaranteed. This thesis concerns mathematical modeling and feedback control of the effect of the muscle relaxants atracurium and rocuronium, the hypnotic propofol, and the analgesic remifentanil. It is motivated by the need to reduce incidences of awareness and overdose-related post-operative complications that occur in standard clinical practice. A major challenge for identification in closed-loop is the poor excitation provided by the feedback signal. This applies to the case of drugs administered in closed-loop. As a result, the standard models for the effect of anesthetics appear to be over-parameterized. This deteriorates the result of system identification and prevents individualized control.. In the first part of the thesis, minimally parameterized models for the single-input single-output NMB and the multiple-input ...
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. Therapeutic paralysis involves the administration of neuromuscular blocking agents to interfere with the synaptic transmission at the neuromuscular junction and thereby prevent or decrease the force of muscle contractions. These drugs are administered in boluses or by continuous infusion and their effects can be monitored by patient observation or with peripheral nerve stimulators similar to those used in the operating room. ...

At the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting in Boston this week, Mindray, a Shenzhen, China firm, introduced its Neuromuscular
A case is reported where progressive muscular weakness and respiratory failure, occurring during and after operation, is thought to have been due to the use of antibiotics, probably streptomycin and neomycin.
Hemodynamic alterations occur when the elephant trunk (ET) technique is adopted to treat extensive aortic aneurysms. In planning the 2nd stage operation to complete ET repair, surgeons must weigh an adequate recovery time after initial surgery against the risk of postoperative ET-related complications. The purpose of this study was to understand the mechanistic link between the flow alteration caused by the ET graft and the development of premature aortic rupture before the 2nd stage operation. Specifically, fluid-structure interaction (FSI) analysis was performed using the CT imaging data of aorta at different stages of ET repair, and then computational variables were compared to those observed in patients who underwent a prophylactic 2nd stage operation to complete aortic repair ...
Semi- and unskilled (blue-collar) workers have a higher risk of premature drop-out from the labor market than skilled and white-collar workers (1). An important explanatory factor is the high physical work demands faced by semi- and unskilled workers (such as spending a large proportion of ones worktime standing, walking and forward bending) which impose an adverse effect on health and act as a barrier to sustainable employment (2). However, these employee groups also face various psychosocial work conditions which may deplete personal resources (3). If ample recovery opportunities are not available, the resulting continuous depletion of resources can lead to adverse effects on workers well-being and health (4). Ultimately, in the absence of adequate recovery, negative long-term effects such as exhaustion, losses of function, and physical and mental impairment can occur (4, 5). Long-term effects of poor recovery from work are often preceded by acute symptoms, measured by the need for recovery ...
The roads and lower elevation trails around Missoula have melted after being snow-covered since mid-December. April 1st is the day fools like me test out our skiing fitness and ramp up our running mileage in preparation for early season races. April is, therefore, a perfect month to discuss training consistency as a means of achieving distance running success over the next nine months of 2019.. By training consistency, I do not mean following the same weekly training routine all year long. Changing running routes and intensity will improve fitness by challenging the body in different ways. I define training consistency as a training program which regularly includes the necessary components of loading, progressive volume, and adequate recovery. Loading: Each running stride places 2.5 to 3.0 times our body weight of loading force through our body. How will your body respond to the cumulative loading forces of a 1-mile run versus a 10-mile run? How will your body respond to a Rut-specific fast ...

Our data are affected by several important limitations. First, as an observational study, we could not enforce a specific care protocol or airway management algorithm. As a result, we cannot ensure that optimal or even similar mask ventilation techniques were used by every provider involved. Although the definition of impossible mask ventilation used at our institution requires multiple attempts using multiple adjuvants and providers, we cannot ensure that all providers persevered for a similar duration. In addition, more objective measures such as prolonged pulse oximetry hypoxemia, low observed tidal volumes, or high peak airway pressures were not used. Second, the data were collected as part of the clinical care delivered. As a result, the data reflect the electronic medical record, and no additional data elements are available. For example, the clinical concept of neck radiation changes encompasses a wide range of physical presentations. Nevertheless, our dataset equates all these patients ...
This trial has comapred the effects on respiratory function of sugammadex and neostigmine in the reversal of moderate rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade.
en] BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Residual muscle paralysis remains a concern for anaesthesiologists. This study investigated the recovery from neuromuscular block (NMB) after an intubation dose of cisatracurium (C) or rocuronium (R) in 32 patients undergoing lumbar disc surgery. METHODS: Anaesthesia was induced with propofol and sufentanil, and maintained with sevoflurane in nitrous oxide/oxygen. Patients were randomised to receive twice the ED95 of either cisatracurium (GC) or rocuronium (GR) before tracheal intubation. After placement in prone position, neuromuscular transmission was monitored at the wrist by accelerometry. NMB was antagonised when the TOF ratio (TOFR) was , 0.75 at muscle closure. The time from muscle relaxant to muscle closure, and to TOFR of 0.25 and of 0.50 were recorded. Data were analysed using Students t-tests, chi-squared tests and two-way mixed-designed ANOVAs. The prediction probability (Pk) of the times from muscle relaxant to muscle closure, and to TOFR of 0.25 for ...
The effects of carbon dioxide stimulation and resistance breathing are first considered, pooling measurements made in the control, relaxant, and recovery time periods, and values are given as medians and quartiles. Respiratory frequency, tidal volume, minute ventilation, and the pressure-time product were increased by carbon dioxide stimulation as expected. End-tidal carbon dioxide concentration increased from 5%(QV, 4.8-5.3%) to 6.5%(QV, 6.2-6.5%), and the change in end tidal carbon dioxide in individuals was 1.45%(QV, 1.2-1.6%). Minute ventilation increased from 6.9 l/min (QV, 6.5-7.7 l/min) to 16.6 l/min (QV, 14-18.7 l/min). These changes were accompanied by a reduction in airway resistance, from 1.2 (QV, 0.67-1.72) cm H2O [center dot] I sup -1 [center dot] s to 0.8 (QV, 0.46-1.33) cm H2O [center dot] I sup -1 [center dot] s. As expected, the pressure-time product increased, from 117 (QV, 83-138) cm H2O [center dot] s [center dot] min sup -1 to 275 (QV, 223-442) cm H2O [center dot] s [center ...
1 Candoxin (MW 7334.6), a novel toxin isolated from the venom of the Malayan krait Bungarus candidus, belongs to the poorly characterized subfamily of nonconventional three-finger toxins present in Elapid venoms. The current study details the pharmacological effects of candoxin at the neuromuscular junction. 2 Candoxin produces a novel pattern of neuromuscular blockade in isolated nerve-muscle preparations and the tibialis anterior muscle of anaesthetized rats. In contrast to the virtually irreversible postsynaptic neuromuscular blockade produced by curaremimetic a-neurotoxins, the neuromuscular blockade produced by candoxin was rapidly and completely reversed by washing or by the addition of the anticholinesterase neostigmine. 3 Candoxin also produced significant train-of-four fade during the onset of and recovery from neuromuscular blockade, both, in vitro and in vivo. The fade phenomenon has been attributed to a blockade of putative presynaptic nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) that ...
KENILWORTH, N.J., Mar 13, 2015 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Merck MRK, +0.55% known as MSD outside the United States and Canada, said it was informed today that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cancelled the meeting of the Anesthetic and Analgesic Drug Products Advisory Committee scheduled for March 18, 2015. The committee had planned to discuss the resubmission of the New Drug Application (NDA) for sugammadex injection, Mercks investigational medicine for the reversal of neuromuscular blockade induced by rocuronium or vecuronium. The FDA has advised Merck that it plans to conduct additional site inspections related to a hypersensitivity study (Protocol 101). The Agency has indicated it plans to conduct these additional inspections prior to an Advisory Committee meeting and completion of their review. Due to the timing of the additional inspections, Merck expects to receive a Complete Response Letter at the time of the Prescription Drug User Fee Act action date for the NDA for sugammadex ...

Generally the presence of one to three twitches is adequate for surgical relaxation. Reversal of the Neuromuscular Blockade and Emergence Nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers are competitive antagonist acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction. They are reversed by increasing the amount of acetylcholine relative to the NMB, using a peripheral anticholinesterase inhibitor, typically neostigmine, to reclaim the receptor from the blocker (Figure 4-3). Reversal of the neuromuscular blockade is possible if there is some evidence of spontaneous recovery at the neuromuscular junction, as detected by at least one out of four twitches. It has gained its popularity because it is associated with a pleasant, rapid loss of consciousness, rapid awakening, and seemingly fewer residual effects on patients brain. Its chemical structure is an alkyl phenol, and some of its behavioral effects seem to resemble those observed with alcohol. 5 mg/kg. v. just prior to injecting the propofol.

Training stress and adequate recovery have been identified as important factors to enhance performance in sports and to avoid overtraining. Research dealing with training monitoring and overtraining is mostly based on the Profile of Mood Stales (POMS). Recently, Kellmann and Kallus (2000, 2001) published the Recovery-Stress-Questionnaire for Athletes (RESTQ-Sport), which assesses training effects from the perspective of stress and recovery. During a six-week training camp before and at the World Championships, 24 female and 30 male rowers of the German Junior National Rowing Team completed the RESTQ-Sport and the POMS six times. Results of selected MANOVAs revealed significant increases of stress and decreases of recovery when training load expands, and vice versa. Changes in mood, creatine kinase, and ergometer performance reflect the alteration and success of training. These results suggest that the RESTQ-Sport is a potential alternative to the POMS in evaluating the impact of various ...
Crates are particularly useful during these periods. If you dont have a crate, consider keeping your pet in a small room such as a half bath or laundry room.. Many pets prefer to be with their people when they arent feeling well. Some will try to follow you around the house, up and down stairs, and so on. If you use a crate to restrict activity, move the crate to the room youre going to be in so your pet doesnt feel the need to follow you around. The more normal his routine is, the happier he will be.. Some orthopedic surgeries require 2 months or longer for adequate recovery. Back or neck surgeries may require several weeks before an animal is able to walk unaided.. When your veterinarian says it is time for your dog to start limited exercise, such as short walks up and down the driveway or down the block, dont use a retractable leash. Squirrel-obsessed dogs will bolt no matter how theyre otherwise feeling, and running like that can cause serious complications.. The most difficult part of ...

A 2008 study compared 121 Japanese patients who experienced PONV after being given the general anesthetic propofol to 790 people who were free of post-operative nausea after receiving it. Those with a G at both copies of rs1800497 were 1.6 times more likely to experience PONV within six hours of surgery compared to those with the AG or AA genotypes. But they were not significantly more likely to experience PONV more than six hours after surgery.[1] Postoperative nausea and vomiting results from patient factors, surgical & anesthetic factors. Surgical factors that confer increased risk for PONV include procedures of increased length, gynecological, abdominal and laparoscopic procedures, ENT procedures, strabismus procedures in children. Anesthetic risk factors include the use of volatile anesthetics, Nitrous Oxide (N2O), Opioids, and longer duration of anesthesia.

In the early 1980s, Franks and Lieb[35] demonstrated that the Meyer-Overton correlation can be reproduced using a soluble protein. They found that two classes of proteins are inactivated by clinical doses of anaesthetic in the total absence of lipids. These are luciferases, which are used by bioluminescent animals and bacteria to produce light,[36] and cytochrome P450,[37] which is a group of heme proteins that hydroxylate a diverse group of compounds, including fatty acids, steroids, and xenobiotics such as phenobarbital. Remarkably, inhibition of these proteins by general anaesthetics was directly correlated with their anaesthetic potencies. Luciferase inhibition also exhibits a long-chain alcohol cutoff, which is related to the size of the anaesthetic-binding pocket.[38] These observations were important because they demonstrated that general anaesthetics may also interact with hydrophobic protein sites of certain proteins, rather than affect membrane proteins indirectly through nonspecific ...

In the United States, the term "Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist" (CRNA) is used to denote advanced practice registered nurses with a doctorate or master's, specializing in the administration of anesthesia.[4] CRNA's account for approximately half of the anesthesia providers in the United States and are the main providers of anesthesia in rural America, administering approximately 43 million anesthetics to patients each year.[5] Historically, nurse anesthetists have been providing anesthesia care to patients since the American Civil War more than 150 years ago. The CRNA credential came into existence in 1956 and approximately 40% of nurse anesthetists are male.[6] Scope of practice limitations and practitioner oversight requirements vary between healthcare facility and state, with 17 states and Guam granting complete autonomy as of 2016. In states that have opted out of supervision, the Joint Commission and CMS recognize CRNA's as licensed independent practitioners.[7] In states requiring ...
