UNLABELLED Patients with myasthenia gravis are more sensitive than healthy patients to nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking drugs. We performed a pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling study of rocuronium in eight myasthenic patients and eight matched control patients. Patients were anesthetized with propofol and sufentanil and a mixture of nitrous(More)
BACKGROUND In myasthenic patients, the time course of action of non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents is prolonged and the sensitivity is increased. We used our antegrade perfused rat peroneal nerve anterior tibialis muscle model to investigate if this altered time course of effect and sensitivity can be explained by the decreased acetylcholine(More)
Multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) is a complication of hemorrhagic shock (HS) and related to high morbidity and mortality. Interaction of activated neutrophils and endothelial cells is considered to play a prominent role in the pathophysiology of MODS. Insight in the nature and molecular basis of endothelial cell activation during HS can assist in(More)
BACKGROUND In myasthenic patients, the sensitivity for nondepolarizing relaxants is increased and the time course of effect is prolonged due to a reduced number of functional acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular junction. The authors investigated both the performance of the link model proposed by Sheiner and a pharmacodynamic-pharmacokinetic model(More)
BACKGROUND A model of an antegrade, perfused, isolated rat peroneal nerve anterior tibial muscle was developed to study potentially important factors governing the time course of action of (nondepolarizing) neuromuscular blocking agents such as concentration, blood flow, and temperature. The model allows observation of the effects of selective changes in(More)
INTRODUCTION Torsades de pointes is a rare but potentially lethal arrhythmia. The amount of literature available on Torsades de pointes occurring in patients with pheochromocytoma is limited, and we found no literature describing this dysrhythmia in a patient with pheochromocytoma under anesthesia. CASE PRESENTATION We describe the case of a 42-year-old(More)
(intravascular) pressures. Second, it advocates the routine use of IAP monitoring in daily clinical practice while observing the dynamic changes in IAP and intracardiac filling pressures during respiration (10). Third, the abdominal compliance can be estimated by looking at the changes in IAP during respiration. Fourth, the Surviving Sepsis Campaign(More)
