A simple method of protamine titration using the Hemochron system was compared with an empirical dose protocol for reversal of heparinisation following cardiopulmonary bypass in 40 patients undergoing elective myocardial revascularisation. Protamine titration revealed a wide range for protamine requirement and resulted in a significant reduction in(More)
We have studied in 22 patients the effect of adding hyaluronidase to bupivacaine during axillary brachial plexus block (BPB) in a double-blind design. Patients received BPB using bupivacaine 2 mg kg-1 with adrenaline 1 in 200,000, either with or without hyaluronidase 3000 iu, in a volume of 0.5 ml per 2.54 cm of the patient's height. The use of(More)

The same patients were studied during three separate treatment sessions; they received either(More)
