BACKGROUND Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors cannot rapidly reverse profound neuromuscular block. Sugammadex, a selective relaxant binding agent, reverses the effects of rocuronium and vecuronium by encapsulation. This study assessed the efficacy of sugammadex compared with neostigmine in reversal of profound vecuronium-induced neuromuscular block under(More)
The sniffing position (SP) has traditionally been considered the optimal head position for direct laryngoscopy (DL). Its superiority over other head positions, however, has been questioned during the last decade. We reviewed the scarce literature on the subject to examine the evidence either in favor or against the routine use of the SP. A standard(More)
UNLABELLED Posttetanic count (PTC) has been used to quantify intense degrees of nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockade. Our objective in the present investigation was to discern whether PTC correlates with recovery from intense cisatracurium-induced neuromuscular blockade under both inhaled and IV anesthesia. In 60 patients, anesthesia was induced with(More)
