Neurons which activate MUSCLE CELLS.
A condition characterized by abnormal posturing of the limbs that is associated with injury to the brainstem. This may occur as a clinical manifestation or induced experimentally in animals.

In contrast, decorticate rigidity is characterized by flexion of the elbows and wrists with extension of the legs and feet. The causative lesion for this condition is located above the red nuclei and usually consists of diffuse cerebral damage. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p358)

Nerve terminal damage by beta-bungarotoxin: its clinical significance. (1/947)

We report here original data on the biological basis of prolonged neuromuscular paralysis caused by the toxic phospholipase A2 beta-bungarotoxin. Electron microscopy and immunocytochemical labeling with anti-synaptophysin and anti-neurofilament have been used to show that the early onset of paralysis is associated with the depletion of synaptic vesicles from the motor nerve terminals of skeletal muscle and that this is followed by the destruction of the motor nerve terminal and the degeneration of the cytoskeleton of the intramuscular axons. The postjunctional architecture of the junctions were unaffected and the binding of fluorescein-isothiocyanate-conjugated alpha-bungarotoxin to acetylcholine receptor was not apparently affected by exposure to beta-bungarotoxin. The re-innervation of the muscle fiber was associated by extensive pre- and post-terminal sprouting at 3 to 5 days but was stable by 7 days. Extensive collateral innervation of adjacent muscle fibers was a significant feature of the re-innervated neuromuscular junctions. These findings suggest that the prolonged and severe paralysis seen in victims of envenoming bites by kraits (elapid snakes of the genus Bungarus) and other related snakes of the family Elapidae is caused by the depletion of synaptic vesicles from motor nerve terminals and the degeneration of the motor nerve terminal and intramuscular axons.  (+info)

Diaphragm electromyogram measured with unilateral magnetic stimulation. (2/947)

The purpose of this study was to establish the phrenic nerve conduction time (PNCT) for magnetic stimulation and further assess the relatively new technique of anterior unilateral magnetic stimulation (UMS) of the phrenic nerves in evaluating the diaphragm electromyogram (EMG). An oesophageal electrode was used to record the diaphragm compound muscle action potential (CMAP) elicited by supramaximal percutaneous electrical phrenic nerve stimulation (ES) and UMS from eight normal subjects. The oesophageal electrode used for recording the CMAP was positioned at the level of the hiatus and 3 cm below. The diaphragm CMAP was also recorded from chest wall surface electrodes in five subjects. All of the phrenic nerves could be maximally stimulated with UMS. A clear plateau of the amplitude of the CMAP was achieved for the right and left phrenic nerves. The mean amplitudes of the CMAP recorded from the oesophageal electrode were, for the right side, 0.74+/-0.29 mV (mean+SD) for ES and 0.76+/-0.30 mV for UMS with maximal power output, and for the left side 0.88+/-0.33 mV for ES and 0.80+/-0.24 mV for UMS. PNCT measured by the oesophageal electrode with ES and UMS with maximal output were, for the right side, 7.0+/-0.8 ms and 6.9+/-0.8 ms, respectively, and for the left side 7.8+/-1.2 ms and 7.7+/-1.3 ms, respectively. However, the CMAP recorded from chest wall surface electrodes with UMS was unsuitable for the measurement of PNCT. The results suggest that unilateral magnetic stimulation of the phrenic nerves combined with an oesophageal electrode can be used to assess diaphragmatic electrical activity and measure the phrenic nerve conduction time.  (+info)

Concurrent inhibition and excitation of phrenic motoneurons during inspiration: phase-specific control of excitability. (3/947)

The movements that define behavior are controlled by motoneuron output, which depends on the excitability of motoneurons and the synaptic inputs they receive. Modulation of motoneuron excitability takes place over many time scales. To determine whether motoneuron excitability is specifically modulated during the active versus the quiescent phase of rhythmic behavior, we compared the input-output properties of phrenic motoneurons (PMNs) during inspiratory and expiratory phases of respiration. In neonatal rat brainstem-spinal cord preparations that generate rhythmic respiratory motor outflow, we blocked excitatory inspiratory synaptic drive to PMNs and then examined their phase-dependent responses to superthreshold current pulses. Pulses during inspiration elicited fewer action potentials compared with identical pulses during expiration. This reduced excitability arose from an inspiratory-phase inhibitory input that hyperpolarized PMNs in the absence of excitatory inspiratory inputs. Local application of bicuculline blocked this inhibition as well as the difference between inspiratory and expiratory firing. Correspondingly, bicuculline locally applied to the midcervical spinal cord enhanced fourth cervical nerve (C4) inspiratory burst amplitude. Strychnine had no effect on C4 output. Nicotinic receptor antagonists neither potentiated C4 output nor blocked its potentiation by bicuculline, further indicating that the inhibition is not from recurrent inhibitory pathways. We conclude that it is bulbospinal in origin. These data demonstrate that rapid changes in motoneuron excitability occur during behavior and suggest that integration of overlapping, opposing synaptic inputs to motoneurons is important in controlling motor outflow. Modulation of phasic inhibition may represent a means for regulating the transfer function of PMNs to suit behavioral demands.  (+info)

An overview of phrenic nerve and diaphragm muscle development in the perinatal rat. (4/947)

In this overview, we outline what is known regarding the key developmental stages of phrenic nerve and diaphragm formation in perinatal rats. These developmental events include the following. Cervical axons emerge from the spinal cord during embryonic (E) day 11. At approximately E12.5, phrenic and brachial axons from the cervical segments merge at the brachial plexi. Subsequently, the two populations diverge as phrenic axons continue to grow ventrally toward the diaphragmatic primordium and brachial axons turn laterally to grow into the limb bud. A few pioneer axons extend ahead of the majority of the phrenic axonal population and migrate along a well-defined track toward the primordial diaphragm, which they reach by E13.5. The primordial diaphragmatic muscle arises from the pleuroperitoneal fold, a triangular protrusion of the body wall composed of the fusion of the primordial pleuroperitoneal and pleuropericardial tissues. The phrenic nerve initiates branching within the diaphragm at approximately E14, when myoblasts in the region of contact with the phrenic nerve begin to fuse and form distinct primary myotubes. As the nerve migrates through the various sectors of the diaphragm, myoblasts along the nerve's path begin to fuse and form additional myotubes. The phrenic nerve intramuscular branching and concomitant diaphragmatic myotube formation continue to progress up until E17, at which time the mature pattern of innervation and muscle architecture are approximated. E17 is also the time of the commencement of inspiratory drive transmission to phrenic motoneurons (PMNs) and the arrival of phrenic afferents to the motoneuron pool. During the period spanning from E17 to birth (gestation period of approximately 21 days), there is dramatic change in PMN morphology as the dendritic branching is rearranged into the rostrocaudal bundling characteristic of mature PMNs. This period is also a time of significant changes in PMN passive membrane properties, action-potential characteristics, and firing properties.  (+info)

Comparison between huperzine A, tacrine, and E2020 on cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction in vitro. (5/947)

AIM: To compare the effects of huperzine A (Hup A), tacrine, and E2020 on cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction in vitro. METHODS: The isolated mouse phrenic nerve-hemidiaphragm preparations were used with the conventional intracellular recording technique. The miniature end-plate potentials (MEPP), the mean quantal content of end-plate potentials (EPP), and the resting membrane potentials of muscle fiber were recorded. RESULTS: Hup A, tacrine, and E2020 at the concentration of 1.0 mumol.L-1 increased the amplitude, time-to-peak, and half-decay time of MEPP in the potencies of E2020 > Hup A > tacrine. Hup A did not significantly change the frequency of MEPP, the appearance of giant MEPP or slow MEPP, the resting membrane potentials, and the mean quantal content of EPP. CONCLUSION: Hup A is a selective and potent cholinesterase inhibitor, by which activity it facilitates the cholinergic transmission at mouse neuromuscular junction, and devoid of pre- and post-synaptic actions.  (+info)

Patterns of phrenic motor output evoked by chemical stimulation of neurons located in the pre-Botzinger complex in vivo. (6/947)

The pre-Botzinger complex (pre-BotC) has been proposed to be essential for respiratory rhythm generation from work in vitro. Much less, however, is known about its role in the generation and modulation of respiratory rhythm in vivo. Therefore we examined whether chemical stimulation of the in vivo pre-BotC manifests respiratory modulation consistent with a respiratory rhythm generator. In chloralose- or chloralose/urethan-anesthetized, vagotomized cats, we recorded phrenic nerve discharge and arterial blood pressure in response to chemical stimulation of neurons located in the pre-BotC with DL-homocysteic acid (DLH; 10 mM; 21 nl). In 115 of the 122 sites examined in the pre-BotC, unilateral microinjection of DLH produced an increase in phrenic nerve discharge that was characterized by one of the following changes in cycle timing and pattern: 1) a rapid series of high-amplitude, rapid rate of rise, short-duration bursts, 2) tonic excitation (with or without respiratory oscillations), 3) an integration of the first two types of responses (i.e., tonic excitation with high-amplitude, short-duration bursts superimposed), or 4) augmented bursts in the phrenic neurogram (i.e., eupneic breath ending with a high-amplitude, short-duration burst). In 107 of these sites, the phrenic neurogram response was accompanied by an increase or decrease (>/=10 mmHg) in arterial blood pressure. Thus increases in respiratory burst frequency and production of tonic discharge of inspiratory output, both of which have been seen in vitro, as well as modulation of burst pattern can be produced by local perturbations of excitatory amino acid neurotransmission in the pre-BotC in vivo. These findings are consistent with the proposed role of this region as the locus for respiratory rhythm generation.  (+info)

Electrophysiological properties of rat phrenic motoneurons during perinatal development. (7/947)

Past studies determined that there is a critical period at approximately embryonic day (E)17 during which phrenic motoneurons (PMNs) undergo a number of pivotal developmental events, including the inception of functional recruitment via synaptic drive from medullary respiratory centers, contact with spinal afferent terminals, the completion of diaphragm innervation, and a major transformation of PMN morphology. The objective of this study was to test the hypothesis that there would be a marked maturation of motoneuron electrophysiological properties occurring in conjunction with these developmental processes. PMN properties were measured via whole cell patch recordings with a cervical slice-phrenic nerve preparation isolated from perinatal rats. From E16 to postnatal day 1, there was a considerable transformation in a number of motoneuron properties, including 1) 10-mV increase in the hyperpolarization of the resting membrane potential, 2) threefold reduction in the input resistance, 3) 12-mV increase in amplitude and 50% decrease duration of action potential, 4) major changes in the shapes of potassium- and calcium-mediated afterpotentials, 5) decline in the prominence of calcium-dependent rebound depolarizations, and 6) increases in rheobase current and steady-state firing rates. Electrical coupling among PMNs was detected in 15-25% of recordings at all ages studied. Collectively, these data and those from parallel studies of PMN-diaphragm ontogeny describe how a multitude of regulatory mechanisms operate in concert during the embryonic development of a single mammalian neuromuscular system.  (+info)

The rostral ventrolateral medulla mediates the sympathoactivation produced by chemical stimulation of the rat nasal mucosa. (8/947)

1. We sought to outline the brainstem circuit responsible for the increase in sympathetic tone caused by chemical stimulation of the nasal passages with ammonia vapour. Experiments were performed in alpha-chloralose-anaesthetized, paralysed and artificially ventilated rats. 2. Stimulation of the nasal mucosa increased splanchnic sympathetic nerve discharge (SND), elevated arterial blood pressure (ABP), raised heart rate slightly and inhibited phrenic nerve discharge. 3. Bilateral injections of the broad-spectrum excitatory amino acid receptor antagonist kynurenate (Kyn) into the rostral part of the ventrolateral medulla (RVLM; rostral C1 area) greatly reduced the effects of nasal mucosa stimulation on SND (-80 %). These injections had no effect on resting ABP, resting SND or the sympathetic baroreflex. 4. Bilateral injections of Kyn into the ventrolateral medulla at the level of the obex (caudal C1 area) or into the nucleus tractus solitarii (NTS) greatly attenuated the baroreflex and significantly increased the baseline levels of both SND and ABP. However they did not reduce the effect of nasal mucosa stimulation on SND. 5. Single-unit recordings were made from 39 putative sympathoexcitatory neurons within the rostral C1 area. Most neurons (24 of 39) were activated by nasal mucosa stimulation (+65.8 % rise in discharge rate). Responding neurons had a wide range of conduction velocities and included slow-conducting neurons identified previously as C1 cells. The remaining putative sympathoexcitatory neurons were either unaffected (n = 8 neurons) or inhibited (n = 7) during nasal stimulation. We also recorded from ten respiratory-related neurons, all of which were silenced by nasal stimulation. 6. In conclusion, the sympathoexcitatory response to nasal stimulation is largely due to activation of bulbospinal presympathetic neurons within the RVLM. We suggest that these neurons receive convergent and directionally opposite polysynaptic inputs from arterial baroreceptors and trigeminal afferents. These inputs are integrated within the rostral C1 area as opposed to the NTS or the caudal C1 area.  (+info)

Each phrenic nerve controls the movement of the hemidiaphragm and provides the sensory innervation to the middle of the diaphragm, some parts of the pleura and pericardium. The phrenic nerve originates mainly from the 4th cervical nerve, but also receives contributions from the 3rd and 5th cervical nerves (C3-C5) in humans. The three nerves join at the upper lateral portion of the anterior scalene, forming the phrenic nerve. The nerve descends obliquely across the anterior scalene, through the gap between sternocleidomastoid and omohyoid muscles, and deep into the thorax. The right phrenic nerve follows the course of the vena cava to provide motor innervation to the right hemidiaphragm. The left phrenic nerve descends to provide motor innervation to the left hemidiaphragm in a course parallel to that of the vagus nerve.. The phrenic nerve is sonographically visualized as a solitary round hypoechoic structure of about 0.76 mm. However, visualization of the phrenic nerve can be considered as ...
The phrenic nerve is a nerve that originates in the neck (C3-C5) and passes down between the lung and heart to reach the diaphragm. It is important for breathing, as it passes motor information to the diaphragm and receives sensory information from it. There are two phrenic nerves, a left and a right one. The phrenic nerve originates mainly from the 4th cervical nerve, but also receives contributions from the 5th and 3rd cervical nerves (C3-C5) in humans. Thus, the phrenic nerve receives innervation from parts of both the cervical plexus and the brachial plexus of nerves. The phrenic nerves contain motor, sensory, and sympathetic nerve fibers. These nerves provide the only motor supply to the diaphragm as well as sensation to the central tendon. In the thorax, each phrenic nerve supplies the mediastinal pleura and pericardium. The phrenic nerve descends obliquely with the internal jugular vein across the anterior scalene, deep to the prevertebral layer of deep cervical fascia and the transverse ...
Myelinated fibers and axons distribution in phrenic nerve of male and female wistar- kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR). Anaceres Ribeiro Rodrigues1, Renata da Silva Ferreira1, Helio Cesar Salgado2, Carlos Augusto Carvalho de Vasconcelos3, Valéria Paula Sassoli Fazan1* Abstract. Histological examination of the diaphragm showed gender differences in fiber composition but gender differences on phrenic nerve myelinated fiber morphometry were not thoroughly addressed. A descriptive morphologic and morphometric study of the phrenic nerves in male and female SHR and WKY was recently published but the myelinated fiber morphometry needs further exploration. After arterial pressure and heart rate recordings, phrenic nerves of young adult (20 week-old) male and female SHR and WKY were prepared for epoxy resin embedding and light microscopy. Morphometric analysis was performed with the aid of computer software, with special attention to myelinated fiber and their respective axons area ...
Nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are expressed throughout the central nervous system, including on neuron populations that control breathing. The specific locations of nAChRs on respiratory related neurons are relatively unknown and their presence on phrenic motor neurons (PMNs) could indicate a point at which developmental nicotine exposure may impact breathing. We hypothesize that application of nicotine to the PMNs will elicit changes in amplitude and area of respiratory motor bursting recorded from cervical 3-5 ventral roots due to the presence of nAChRs on PMNs. A brainstem spinal cord split-bath preparation was used to separately perfuse brainstem and spinal cord chambers with artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF), and nicotinic aCSF was added to the spinal cord chamber. Burst amplitude and area under the curve were measured at baseline and during application of three different nicotine concentrations (400nM, 4M, 40M). Our results show that while 400nM nicotinic aCSF did ...

Serotonin initiates neuroplasticity in a number of invertebrate and vertebrate experimental models. The first report of serotonin-dependent plasticity in respiratory motor control was a long-lasting facilitation of phrenic activity following episodic stimulation of chemoafferent neurons [1], a phenomenon now known as long-term facilitation (LTF). Recent progress has contributed considerably towards an understanding of the mechanisms and manifestations of this potentially important model of respiratory plasticity. In this presentation, recent progress in understanding the mechanism of LTF will be reviewed. In all studies, we exposed awake or anesthetized Sprague Dawley rats to episodic hypoxia as an experimental model of LTF. Both awake and anesthetized rats express LTF following episodic hypoxia. Intermittent, but not continuous hypoxia elicits LTF, indicating remarkable pattern sensitivity in its underlying mechanism. Both episodic chemoafferent activation by stimulation of the carotid sinus ...

Objectives: Anti-ganglioside antibodies are present in approximately half of Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) patients. Recently, it has been shown that a considerable proportion of these patients has serum antibodies against antigenic epitopes formed by a complex of two different gangliosides. However, direct experimental evidence for neuropathogenicity of this special category of antibodies is currently lacking. Here, we explored a series of GBS and GBS-variant sera with anti-ganglioside-complex antibodies for their ability to induce complement-dependent deleterious effects at the living neuronal membrane. Methods: The neuropathophysiological potential of 31 GBS sera containing either anti-GM1/GD1a- or anti-GM1/GQ1b-ganglioside-complex antibodies was studied at motor nerve terminal presynaptic membranes in the mouse phrenic nerve/diaphragm muscle ex vivo experimental model. With electrophysiological measurements and confocal fluorescence microscopy, we assessed and quantified the damaging effect ...
We report that TCS is capable of disrupting ECC in both cardiac and skeletal muscle, resulting in impaired grip strength and hemodynamics, and mobility in a model fish species. These results were unexpected given the extensive toxicological testing of TCS recently reviewed (2). In fact, there is a dearth of information regarding the myotoxicity of TCS and its potential impacts on human and environmental health. An earlier study reported TCS to have an inhibitory effect on the excitability of rat phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparations; however, the mechanisms behind these findings were not explored and the study was largely ignored (32). Our present findings identify a potential for TCS to impair physiological muscle functions in vivo and identify proteins essential for ECC as targets, namely Cav1.1, Cav1.2, and RyR channels.. The molecular mechanisms by which TCS impairs ECC in skeletal muscle appear to stem from a unique functional dissociation (uncoupling) of bidirectional signaling between ...
All experiments were performed on male Sprague Dawley rats (250-350 gm; Hilltop Laboratories, Scotsdale, PA) in accordance with National Institutes of Health and institutional animal care and use guidelines. All procedures and protocols were approved by the University of Virginias Animal Research Committee.. Recording and juxtacellular labeling of rostral VRG bulbospinal inspiratory neurons. Anesthesia was induced with 5% halothane in 100% oxygen. During surgery, the rats (n = 9) were artificially ventilated with 1.6-1.8% halothane in 100% oxygen via a tracheal cannula (50-60 cycles/min; 1-1.2 ml/100 gm). End-expiratory CO2 was maintained between 4.5 and 5% during surgery, and rectal temperature was kept between 37.5 and 38.5°C. A femoral artery and a vein were catheterized to record arterial blood pressure (AP) and to administer drugs, respectively. The rats were placed in a stereotaxic frame, and the right phrenic nerve was isolated as described previously (Guyenet and Wang, 2001). A ...

Powell et al. defined short- and long-term time domains in the respiratory response to both single and repetitive hypoxic exposures [1]. Aspects of these time domains reflect a neural plasticity in the network generating the respiratory pattern and are evident in both the timing and amplitude of the cycle. Studies from our laboratory have focused on the plasticity evoked by hypoxia, in particular, the role of the lateral pons in modulating the cycles timing [2,3]. Because of respiratory modulation of sympathetic nerve activity (SNA), we hypothesized that comparable time domains are also evident in SNAs response to hypoxia and that the lateral pons also modulates plasticity in SNA.. We recorded phrenic nerve activity (PNA) and splanchnic SNA in anesthetized (Equithesin), paralyzed, vagotomized, thoracotomized, adult male rats (Sprague-Dawley, Zivic Miller). We generated cycle-triggered averages of PNA and sSNA before, during and after hypoxic exposures (8% O2/92% N2, 45 s duration). In a ...

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Phrenic nerve palsy (PNP) is often associated with Mycobacterium tuberculosis-related expansile pneumonia, possibly because of nerve entrapment by healing fibrosis. Mohan and Jayaswal1 postulated that pressure on the left phrenic nerve by an enlarged hilar lymph node caused unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis in a 6-year-old boy who developed PNP during the course of pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB). Gie et al. described 6 childhood cases of PTB complicated by unilateral PNP. The children did not recover on antituberculosis drugs and steroids, or in 1 case, after surgical decompression. Therefore the theory of glandular compression alone does not adequately account for PNP as a complication of PTB. Our case, in which the fate of the phrenic nerve was confirmed, provides strong evidence that destruction of the phrenic nerve by the tuberculous inflammatory process is involved in the pathogenesis of diaphragmatic paralysis, which may influence the clinical management of these children ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The diagnosis of phrenic nerve block on chest X-ray by a double-exposure technique. AU - Hickey, R.. AU - Ramamurthy, S.. PY - 1989/1/1. Y1 - 1989/1/1. N2 - Diaphragmatic paralysis due to phrenic nerve block is a frequent complication of brachial plexus blocks performed above the clavicle. Farrar et al. reported incidences of 36, 36, and 38%, respectively, when routine chest x-rays were taken 4 h following interscalene, subclavian perivascular, and Kulenkampff supraclavicular techniques of brachial plexus blocks. Knoblanche demonstrated a higher incidence of 67% when fluoroscopic exmainations were performed to evaluate diaphragmatic movement in 15 patients within 3 h following subclavian perivascular brachial plexus blocks. Reports of the diagnosis of phrenic nerve block have previously relied upon clinical symptomatology, plain chest x-ray, or fluoroscopy. Recently, we have used a double-exposure technique that has allowed us to easily detect the presence or absence of phrenic ...
The phrenic nerve controls voluntary and involuntary breathing, such as during sleep, by transmitting signals from the brain and spinal cord to the esophagus. The signal originates in the C-3 through C-5 cervical spinal roots in the neck, and then travels through the chest between the heart and lungs to the diaphragm, which is the primary muscle involved in breathing. The nerves signals cause the diaphragm to contract, resulting in expansion of the chest cavity and inhalation of air into the lungs. Individuals with phrenic nerve injury experience difficulty breathing and, depending on the severity of the injury, may become winded after climbing a flight of stairs or even tying their shoes. For some, difficulty in breathing while lying down can interfere with sleep, causing insomnia. Symptoms can include lethargy, headaches and blue-tinged lips or fingers. Some people develop the injury after a major operation such as neck dissection for head and neck cancer, lung surgery, coronary bypass ...
Unrecognized and untreated Borrelia infection can progress from localized inflammation (erythema migrans) to early or late generalized stage within weeks to months. Meningoradiculitis, arthritis, multiple erythemas, myositis, and myocarditis of the early generalized stage have a good prognosis after antibiotic treatment, but late manifestations can progress to chronic disease. Phrenic nerve palsy, autonomic nervous system dysfunction and carditis with acute heart failure are among rare manifestations as well as late generalised stage with myelitis. We present a case of a patient with meningoradiculitis, autonomic nervous dysfunction, respiratory failure due to phrenic nerve palsy and acute heart failure with systolic myocardial dysfunction. The diagnosis of Borrelia infection was confirmed by positive serological testing, appropriate response to antibiotic therapy and exclusion of other diseases. Our case suggests that in unexplained respiratory failure and acute systolic myocardial dysfunction, ...
Of 1225 patients undergoing open heart surgery over an 18-month period, 13 had diaphragmatic dysfunction due to phrenic nerve injury; 11 of these had internal mammary artery grafting. Nine had diaphragmatic dysfunction on the same side as the internal mammary artery graft side (7 bilateral and 2 unilateral) as determined by fluoroscopy during phrenic nerve stimulation. Although topical cardiac hypothermia has been the prevailing mechanism for diaphragmatic dysfunction due to phrenic nerve injury after open-heart surgery, dissection of the internal mammary artery with electrocautery, traction, or vascular compromise to the phrenic nerve, or a combination, could be additional factors. Rocking bed ventilation was instituted to facilitate passive diaphragmatic movement and airway decannulation and was continued at home until the phrenic nerve or nerves recovered. These patients were followed up clinically and with serial measurements of vital capacity, respiratory muscle strength, phrenic nerve ...
The strengths of our study include the inclusion of a large number of patients, allowing for a meaningful comparison of ultrasound variables with the reference method. In addition, the systematic use of bilateral magnetic stimulation of the phrenic nerves as a reference method lends strength to our results, as this technique allows an objective and non-volitional evaluation of diaphragm function that is more reliable than other methods such as the measurement of maximal inspiratory pressures, especially in the ICU setting.35 We measured TFdi during tidal breathing, which has the advantage of being non-volitional and possible to use even in sedated or non-cooperative patients. Our choice of performing measurements at the moment of switching to PSV was based our belief that this moment had clinical relevance, as it likely represents an individualised moment where patients begin to recover from their underlying illness. Our findings that diaphragm function measured at this time point had prognostic ...
The present study therefore aims to investigate the pathophysiology of respiratory muscle dysfunction in patients with optimally treated, stable HFrEF by means of multi-modal respiratory and skeletal muscle strength testing (including diaphragm ultrasound, magnetic phrenic nerve Stimulation with assessment of transdiaphragmatic pressures and transdiaphragmatic pressures after a comprehensive set of voluntary tests). That said answers can be given (1) to the question whether respiratory muscle dysfunction contributes to the sensation of breathlesness and/or exercise intolerance independent from left ventricular function in HF. (2) to the question what the natural time course of respiratory muscle dysfunction in these patients looks like ...

The actions of the steroidal glycoside holothurin on amphibian nerve preparations and a mammalian nerve-muscle preparation have been studied. In general, the saponin has a powerful and irreversible action on both types of nerve, and appears to exert a direct, contractural effect on muscle.. Specifically, holothurin is comparable to the reference blocking agents cocaine, procaine and physostigmine in potency on desheathed bullfrog sciatic nerve. However, it affords a marked contrast with these reference agents in the sense that its action on this preparation is quite irreversible on washing, and it does not alter impulse conduction velocity in the course of its attenuation of the impulse. It displays the same irreversibility of action with respect to blockade of the action current in single fiber-single node nerve preparations from the toad and the frog.. On the rat phrenic nerve-diaphragm preparation, this material irreversibly blocks twitch response via either direct or indirect stimulation ...

Toxicon 31, 1237-1247, 1993.-The effects of Bothrops insularis venom were examined in vivo in mice and chicks and in vitro using the mouse phrenic nerve diaphragm and chick biventer cervicis muscle preparations. Incubation of the indirectly or directly stimulated mouse preparation with B. insularis venom (20-80 μg/ml) produced an initial increase in twitch tension followed by irreversible blockade. With direct stimulation in the presence of d-tubocurarine, no increase in twitch tension was observed prior to the onset of blockade. A venom-induced effect on presynaptic activity was suggested by the marked increase in the frequency of the mepps recorded in vitro 5-15 min after venom addition. A direct muscular effect was shown by the dose- and time-dependent reduction in the resting membrane potential of the diaphragm. ...
The precise pattern of motor neuron (MN) activation is essential for the execution of motor actions; however, the molecular mechanisms that give rise to specific patterns of MN activity are largely unknown. Phrenic MNs integrate multiple inputs to mediate inspiratory activity during breathing and are constrained to fire in a pattern that drives efficient diaphragm contraction. We show that Hox5 transcription factors shape phrenic MN output by connecting phrenic MNs to inhibitory pre-motor neurons. genes establish phrenic MN organization and dendritic topography through the regulation of phrenic-specific cell adhesion programs. In the absence of genes, phrenic MN firing becomes asynchronous and erratic due to loss of phrenic MN inhibition. Strikingly, mice lacking genes in MNs exhibit abnormal respiratory behavior throughout their lifetime. Our findings support a model where MN-intrinsic transcriptional programs shape the pattern of motor output by orchestrating distinct aspects of MN ...
We report a patient with a large pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma (PPC) in the left upper lobe greater than 10 cm in diameter. She underwent left upper lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection and concomitant resection of the left phrenic nerve, vagus nerve and pericardium. She received adjuvant chemotherapy, but had tumor recurrence. We then performed left completion pneumonectomy, but could not remove the tumor completely because of rapid tumor invasion to the left atrium. Urgent surgery should be considered for recurrent resectable PPC.
Acquired pulmonary stenosis is rare in adults and may be missed unless a high index of suspicion is present. Extrinsic pulmonic stenosis is even rarer and predominantly caused by external thoracic masses creating non-dynamic obstruction of the right ventricular outflow tract. A 20-year-old female was referred to our center with a cystic mass detected by transthoracic echocardiography and thoracic computed tomography, in the superoanterior mediastinum, 5.5x5.5x7 cm in size, causing main pulmonary trunk compression. Repeat transthoracic echocardiography demonstrated a mass causing compression of the main pulmonary artery immediately after the pulmonary valve. Continuous wave Doppler showed a peak systolic gradient of 65 mmHg and a mean gradient of 37 mmHg in the pulmonary artery at the site of compression. She underwent an open thoracotomy via a midline sternotomy. The mass was firmly attached to the pericardium. Its largest diameter was 15 cm; it surrounded the left phrenic nerve completely and ...

As already reported, ORG 7268 had a potent neuromuscular blocking action, and ORG NC58 and ORG 7402 had a weak neuromuscular blocking action. As expected, ORG 7268 increased the degree of neuromuscular block by vecuronium. However, a low concentration (10 microM) of ORG NC58 and ORG 7402 reversed the block by vecuronium. At a high concentration (50 microM), ORG NC58 and ORG 7402 increased the degree of block by vecuronium. Although we do not have enough data to explain these paradoxical reversal of neuromuscular block at this moment, we postulate that these results reflect the interaction between "slow" and "fast" competitive antagonists. Regardless of the mechanism, it should be emphasized that the concentrations of ORG NC58 and ORG ...
Inhibits voltage-gated sodium channels, preferentially subtype Nav1.5/SCN5A (in cardiac myocytes), but also Nav1.6/SCN8A and Nav1.7/SCN9A (TTX-sensitive Nav in rat DRG neurons) and invertebrate Nav (in insect neurons) as well as voltage-gated potassium channels of the subtype Kv2.1/KCNB1. Is suggested to bind to site 3 of the sodium channels and inhibit the inactivation of the activated channels, thereby blocking neuronal transmission. On potassium channels, inhibits activation of channels with an IC(50) of 8.05 uM through a voltage sensor-trapping mechanism (PubMed:23246579). Increases muscle contraction in several assays (mouse phrenic nerve-diaphragm, toad heart, rat vas deferens) and is suggested to act both presynaptically and postsynaptically.

X-rays of the abdomen and chest might also be recommended. Since hiccups originate from phrenic nerve/diaphragm irritability, anything causing pressure on the diaphragm (from inside the chest or the abdomen) could lead to them. X-rays may help identify a cause.. If they do not, your veterinarian will likely take a wait-and-see approach. Chronic hiccups in humans have been linked to a host of disorders including lesions found in the central nervous system, pericarditis (inflammation of the sac around the heart), cancers of the neck, chest, and abdomen, and electrolyte abnormalities. This doesnt necessarily correlate to dogs, but it is helpful information to have if further investigation is pursued. Case reports of dogs with chronic hiccups are rare, so it is hard to know if they are medically significant. In most cases, they are likely not.. There is no real treatment for hiccups. Some home remedies include the rolling technique described above and putting a teaspoon of sugar on the back of the ...

Anoro Ellipta functions by enabling the muscle tissue around the bronchi and lung area, so the airway passage stay open and relaxed. This increments respiratory airflow with COPD patients. This solution is intended to generally be consumed once a day for long haul upkeep of great respiratory system. In terms of treating COPD, there are a many alternatives accessible for this respiratory ailment. But Anoro Ellipta is the best amongst others and I have a good news for you; FDA has approved this treatment, which is a great news for people suffering from COPD.. Restorative respiratory recovery projects aid patients with better breathing strategies to empower these people to perform their everyday professions with less discomfort in breathing. People with incessant COPD typically use Anoro ellipta for a longer time. If COPD left untreated then chances are the patient will suffer from many side effects, for example, sleeping disorder. In this COPD, medical research, about a large portion of the ...
Inferior Phrenic Arteries are paired branches of the abdominal aorta, originating at the level of T12-L2, consisting of two small vessels, which supplies oxygenated blood to the diaphragm
Phrenic neuropathies (PN) are an important cause of dyspnoea, orthopnoea and hypercapnic respiratory failure. However, there is no agreement on the nosology of this disorder. The aim of this cohort study was to analyze the authors and published PN patients and compare them with other immune-mediated focal neuropathies to determine the most appropriate nomenclature and classification of the disorder. All patients with PN referred to the author from March 2004 to March 2013 were included. In addition, to identify previously published patients with PN, a PubMed search was done. The demographic and clinical characteristics of both series were then compared with the published series of neuralgic amyotrophy (NA) patients. Of 19 PN patients from the authors series, 11 % fulfilled the criteria for definite and 58 % for probable NA; while in 58 previous patients, the values were 16 and 48 %, respectively. PN and NA both have a male preponderance and a frequent history of preceding events, but PN occur ...

The pericardiacophrenic artery is a long slender branch of the internal thoracic artery. It accompanies the phrenic nerve, between the pleura and pericardium, to the diaphragm, to which it is distributed. It anastomoses with the musculophrenic and superior phrenic arteries. On their course through the thoracic cavity, the pericardiacophrenic arteries are located within and supply the fibrous pericardium.[1] Along with the musculophrenic arteries, they also provide arterial supply to the diaphragm.[2] ...

Hiccup - What It Is, Cause and Treatmentsthat we should all know. In addition, theHiccupis an involuntary contraction of the diaphragm and other muscles of the thorax, followed by closure of the glottis and vibration of the vocal chords, which is why it produces a characteristic noise. This spasm is triggered by irritation of some nerve, such as the vagus nerve or the phrenic nerve, or of part of the brain that controls the respiratory muscles, that can happen by diverse reasons, as.. Hiccupoccur when the diaphragm suddenly and involuntarily contracts (tightens), resulting in aHiccupbeing produced at the top of the trachea. The diaphragm is a thin muscle membrane that separates the thoracic cavity from the abdomen (belly). It is located under the rib cage and helps control breathing. So check it out nowHiccup - What it is, Cause and Treatments:. ...
Missteps in grown-up pet dogs are way much less usual, and also perhaps much less benign. The inquiry comes to be, exists something brand-new that is bothersome among the nerves associated with the misstep path. These consist of the phrenic nerve which overlooks the heart, the vagus nerve (which takes a trip up the side of the neck), the cervical spine, and also the brainstem.. The clinical workup for consistent missteps in a grown-up pet dog begins with a. First analysis examinations usually consist of x-rays of the breast and also abdominal area and also standard blood job. Your vet is seeking points like growths, heart augmentation, tummy problems, hiatal rupture (a problem of the diaphragm), and also electrolyte derangements in the blood.. Often stomach conditions like inflammatory digestive tract illness and also reflux esophagitis can cause missteps. If your pet dog reveals any kind of indicators connected with these conditions, therapy details to the hidden problem must fix the missteps ...
Between the two latter diverticula is a mass of mesoderm containing the ducts of Cuvier, and this is continuous ventrally with the mesoderm in which the umbilical veins are passing to the sinus venosus. A septum of mesoderm thus extends across the body of the embryo. It is attached in front to the body-wall between the pericardium and umbilicus; behind to the body-wall at the level of the second cervical segment; laterally it is deficient where the pericardial and pleuro-peritoneal cavities communicate, while it is perforated in the middle line by the foregut. This partition is termed the septum transversum, and is at first a bulky plate of tissue. As development proceeds the dorsal end of the septum is carried gradually caudalward, and when it reaches the fifth cervical segment muscular tissue with the phrenic nerve grows into it. It continues to recede, however, until it reaches the position of the adult diaphragm on the bodies of the upper lumbar vertebræ. The liver buds grow into the septum ...
