Tetanic stimulation and, to some extent, trapezius squeeze are reproducible and noninvasive stimulation patterns that can be used as an alternative to skin incision when evaluating potency of an anesthetic agent.
Meperidine and skin surface warming additively reduce the shivering threshold: a volunteer study
A combination of meperidine and skin surface warming reduced the shivering threshold to 33.8°C ± 0.2°C via an additive interaction and produced only very mild sedation and no respiratory toxicity.

The lambda(b/g) values of halothane, isoflurane and sevoflURane in fasted horses in this study are significantly lower than those reported in humans and can refine models of anaesthetic uptake.
Adding Sodium Bicarbonate to Lidocaine Enhances the Depth of Epidural Blockade
The addition of sodium bicarbonate to lidocaine enhances the depth of epidural blockade, increases inhibition of temporal summation, and hastens the onset of block.
Dexmedetomidine Decreases Thiopental Dose Requirement and Alters Distribution Pharmacokinetics
The thiopental dose-sparing effect of dexmedetomidine on the electroencephalogram is not the result of a pharmacodynamic interaction but rather can be explained by a dexmededetomidlne-lnduced decrease inThiopental distribution volume and distribution clearances.

The photoacoustic measurement principle is more accurate than the other methods, although the polychromatic infrared analyzers are safer because they detect erroneously selected agents.
Ondansetron does not reduce the shivering threshold in healthy volunteers.
Ondansetron appears to have little potential for facilitating induction of therapeutic hypothermia, and the core-temperature sweating, vasoconstriction and shivering thresholds are determined after compensating for changes in mean-skin temperature.
Clinical validation of electromyography and acceleromyography as sensors for muscle relaxation

Electromyography is more reliable for use in daily practice as it is less influenced by external disturbances than acceleromyography.

Nitrous Oxide Decreases Solubility of Isoflurane and Halothane in Blood
It is concluded that nitrous oxide decreases the λblood/gas of isoflurane or halothane, and that this change of solubility, although small, increases the uptake rate of Halothane or isofLurane.
