Recent published data suggest that despite apparently satisfactory recovery from nondepolarising block (train-of-four ratios in excess of 0.90), even very small doses of additional relaxant may re-establish significant paralysis. We sought to verify this observation and quantify its magnitude. Twelve adult patients were studied under nitrous(More)
The evoked EMG response commonly decreases in amplitude during the first few minutes of anaesthesia. The purpose of this study was to determine if a relationship exists between changes in hand temperature, which are known to occur with induction of anaesthesia, and drift in the EMG signal. The indirectly evoked response of the 1st dorsal interosseous muscle(More)
BACKGROUND Mivacurium's rapid rate of recovery has led to the suggestion that routine reversal of its residual effects may be unnecessary once signs of spontaneous recovery are evident. When antagonism is attempted at 90% twitch depression, the time saved to return to train-of-four (TOF) ratios > 0.70 compared to control has been reported to average < or =(More)
OBJECTIVES Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and minimally invasive aortic valve replacement (MIAVR) have emerged as alternatives to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) via traditional sternotomy. However, their effect on clinical practice remains unclear. The study's objective is to describe clinical trends between TAVR, MIAVR and SAVR in(More)
