The effect of fluoride and hypothermia on the in vitro metabolism of mivacurium.

Abstract

IMPLICATIONS The fluoride inhibition of mivacurium hydrolysis by pseudocholinesterase increases in hypothermia, but it will very rarely occur in clinical practice because it requires rather large fluoride concentrations (>50 micromol/L) and very low temperatures (<28 degrees C).
