Adverse drug effects on neuromuscular transmission
ratio,] the quotient of these two values (T4/T1), was taken as a measure of drug-induced neuromuscular transmission
9(323min), compared with patients with adequate recovery of neuromuscular transmission
It could also be used as a tool for investigating the effects on neuromuscular transmission
of other drugs and inhalation agents used during anaesthesia.
The nature of the progressive weakness, impaired neuromuscular transmission
, and degeneration of the NMJ in SCS has proven to be a complex interplay between developmental and degenerative processes acting at pre- and post-synaptic sites (5).
Increased body temperatures, pregnancy, emotions, hormonal changes, medications that affect neuromuscular transmission
, illness, and/or infections are associated with disease exacerbation.
excess, although uncommon, is of special interest to the anesthetist; because it produces a curare-like effect on neuromuscular transmission
It is strongly recommended that neuromuscular transmission
be monitored continuously during administration and recovery with the help of a nerve stimulator.
Only relatively clear cases of increased jitter should be considered as a diagnostic of disturbed neuromuscular transmission
and borderline findings should be interpreted with caution (13).
Excessive copper may interfere with neuromuscular transmission
was assessed by electromyography on the left hypothenar muscle, using trans-cutaneous electrodes.
MG is caused by T cell dependent antibodies that bind to and deplete acetylcholine receptors (AChR) at neuromuscular junctions causing muscle weakness by interfering with neuromuscular transmission
and junction architecture.
The Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists guidelines in relation to Neuromuscular Transmission
Monitoring (Professional Standard 18, 3.
Perioperative monitoring of neuromuscular transmission
using acceleromyography prevents residual neuromuscular block following pancuronium.
The second section covers taking a history and doing an exam, while the last deals with the presentation and treatment of common neurological diseases, such as dementia, epilepsy, cranial neuropathies, Parkinson's disease, diseases affecting the spinal cord, motor neuron disease, disorders of the peripheral nerve, neuromuscular transmission
, skeletal muscle, intercranial tumors, multiple sclerosis, systemic disease, and hereditary conditions.
