BACKGROUND Butyrylcholinesterase deficiency can result in prolonged paralysis after administration of succinylcholine or mivacurium. We conducted an interview study to assess whether patients with butyrylcholinesterase deficiency were more likely to have experienced awareness during emergence from anaesthesia if neuromuscular monitoring had not been(More)
The synthesis of N-acyl 3,4-disubstituted pyrroles can be accomplished directly from hydrazine and an aldehyde via a Piloty-Robinson pyrrole synthesis. The use of microwave radiation for the cyclization and pyrrole formation greatly reduces the time necessary for this process and facilitates moderate to good yields from hydrazine for the corresponding(More)
BACKGROUND Early postoperative mobilisation may reduce patient morbidity and improve hospital efficiency by accelerated discharge. The aim of this study was to measure postural stability early after laparoscopic surgery in order to assess how early it is safe to mobilise and discharge patients. METHODS We included 25 women undergoing outpatient(More)
BACKGROUND Neuromuscular blocking agents are commonly used during general anaesthesia but can lead to postoperative residual neuromuscular blockade and associated morbidity. With appropriate objective neuromuscular monitoring (objNMM) residual blockade can be avoided. In this survey, we investigated the use of objNMM in Denmark. METHODS We conducted an(More)
The Danish Cholinesterase Research Unit (DCRU) is a nationwide unit for patients carrying mutations in the butyrylcholinesterase enzyme (BChE). BChE hydrolyzes the neuromuscular blocking drugs succinylcholine and mivacurium. Patients with mutations in the butyrylcholinesterase gene are at risk of experiencing a prolonged effect of the drugs, such as(More)
