We have estimated the effect of omitting antagonism of neuromuscular block on postoperative nausea and vomiting. A systematic search (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Biological Abstracts, Cochrane library, reference lists and hand searching; no language restriction, up to March 1998) was performed for relevant randomized controlled trials. In eight studies (1134(More)
Increasing evidence suggests a neuroprotective potential of magnesium sulfate (MgSO4). Only limited information about the passage of MgSO4 to the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is available in neurosurgical patients. However, with regard to the clinical relevance of magnesium's neuroprotective properties, quantitative data about its CSF passage are needed. The(More)
BACKGROUND Although neuromuscular blocking agents do not cross the blood-brain barrier, they may penetrate the central nervous system under particular circumstances and eventually cause neurotoxic consequences. METHODS The effects of neuromuscular blocking agents on excitatory and inhibitory transmission in area CA1 of rat hippocampal slices were(More)
BACKGROUND Curaremimetic nondepolarizing muscle relaxants are widely used in clinical practice to prevent muscle contraction either during surgery or during intensive care. Although primarily acting at the neuromuscular junction, these compounds can cause adverse effects, including modification of cardiac rhythm, arterial blood pressure, and in the worst(More)
