• relaxation
  • Spasms of the pectoralis major muscle and resulting severe pain (acute or chronic) may be reduced by pectoral nerve block or neuromuscular relaxation. (wikipedia.org)
  • Decreasing the pectoral muscle tone intraoperatively by neuromuscular relaxation (paralytic agents) or by a nerve block (local anesthetic injection), can facilitate better cosmetic results during breast augmentation or post-mastectomy breast implantation. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • such administration has no effect on duration of blockade, provided partial recovery is allowed to occur between doses. (drugs.com)
  • pressures
  • 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)
  • Surgical
  • The purpose of this pilot study is to compare the use of deep or standard neuromuscular blockade (NMB) in combination with low or standard insufflation pressure in participants undergoing a surgical procedure, laparoscopic cholecystectomy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • block
  • Combined with aminoglycosides: can increase the possibility of ototoxicity, nephrotoxicity and neuromuscular block, result in hearing loss. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedures
  • Blockade of the lateral pectoral nerve is helpful in cases such as shoulder dislocation and other orthopedic procedures, involving the shoulder. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • 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. (journals.co.za)
  • treatment
  • 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)
