The neuromuscular blocking effects of aminoglycoside antibiotics were tested in the isolated phrenic nervediaphragm preparation of the rat. The neuromuscular blocking potencies were netilmicin equals sisomicin much greater than neomycin much greater than gentamicin much greater than tobramycin. The EC 50's (concentration resulting in 50 percent depression(More)
Propofol and etomidate were compared as hypnotics in total intravenous anaesthesia for microlaryngeal surgery combined with jet ventilation. Two groups of 15 patients were studied. In group 1, propofol 2.0 mg/kg was used for induction. For maintenance a continuous infusion of 12 mg/kg/hour was used for the first 10 minutes, followed by 9 mg/kg/hour for the(More)
The clinical effects and pharmacokinetics of 24 h infusion of midazolam (MDZ) during major maxillofacial surgery and postoperative observation in an Intensive Care Unit (ICU) were studied in 20 patients. During anaesthesia, infusion of MDZ at 5 mg/h combined with 67% nitrous oxide, 1.8 (s.d. = 0.8) mg of fentanyl, and 26.5 (s.d. = 11.4) mg of vecuronium,(More)
In vitro (rat hemidiaphragm) and in vivo (rat and cat tibialis anterior muscle preparation) studies of the interactions between Org NC 45 and some i.v. anaesthetics and antibiotics were carried out. With the exception of ketamine 1 mg kg-1 none of the drugs tested in vivo significantly changed the time course of an Org NC 45 bolus injection. All of the(More)
Exposure to tricresyl phosphates (TCPs), via for example contaminated cabin air, has been associated with health effects including the so-called aerotoxic syndrome. While TCP neurotoxicity is mainly attributed to ortho-isomers like tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (ToCP), recent exposure and risk assessments indicate that ToCP levels in cabin air are very low.(More)
