is a relatively new drug being tried as an adjunct for caudal block.
Patients who had a previous history of obesity surgery or chronic respiratory disease, renal and/or hepatic dysfunction, malignant hyperthermia, were pregnant, or had an allergy or contraindication to narcotics, neuromuscular blockade agents, sugammadex, neostigmine
, or other medications used during general anaesthesia were excluded.
At the end of surgery, an independent observer registered information on demographics, type of procedure and perioperative time, ND-NMBA used (type, total dose and method of administration), use of neostigmine
(dose), use or not of NMRM and the result of TOF tests performed on admission to PACU.
At the end of anesthesia, anticholinesterase drugs such as neostigmine
are recommended to reverse the residual neuromuscular block, which has a high incidence rate and can lead to critical respiratory events.

Influence of neostigmine
on the course of neuromuscular blockade with rocuronium or cisatracurium: a randomized, double-blind trial.
There are other inhibitors which bind at both esteric as well anionic site of the enzyme like neostigmine
Caudal additives in paediatrics: a comparison among midazolam ketamine and neostigmine
coadministered with bupivacaine.
Some authors suggest avoiding neostigmine
and to simply allow the neuromuscular block to wear off.
Hypoventilation has to be addressed to decrease the PaCO2 before neostigmine
and glycopyrrolate will be optimally effective.
Although the prolonged duration of action of succinylcholine after the administration of agents like neostigmine
has been extensively described, there are also a few reports of resistance to muscle relaxation with succinylcholine.
Enemas, oral laxatives, stool softeners, neostigmine
had been prescribed with insignificant effects.
Objectives: To evaluate the effects of neostigmine
on onset and duration of Intravenous regional anesthesia (IVRA) when added to lignocaine.
The Mestinon is a compound similar to physostigmine or neostigmine
, which keeps what little acetylcholine there is in the synapse for as long as possible before it degrades.
is an example of a cholinesterase inhibitor.
