Pulmonary function and head lift during spontaneous recovery from pipecuronium neuromuscular block.

Abstract

We have studied in seven healthy conscious volunteers the correlation between the electromyographic (EMG) and clinical criteria used to identify adequate recovery from sub-paralysing doses of pipecuronium. Pipecuronium (mean dose 1.88 (range 0.92-3.16) mg) was administered to reach a T4/T1 ratio of 0.5; full recovery to 1.0 was produced in a mean time of 25… (More)
