Comparison of Reversal of Neuromuscular Blockade With Sugammadex Versus Neostigmine Plus Glycopyrolate in Patients Undergoing Burn Surgery

2019-07-10 19:04:24 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to learn if there is a difference in recovery time when using sugammadex versus neostigmine. The researchers also hope to add further knowledge and data to the safety of using sugammadex in burn patients who are hypermetabolic.

Retrospective Investigation of Grafted Kidney Function After Reversal of Neuromuscular Blockade Using Neostigmine or Sugammadex.

Sugammadex has the steroid-encapsulating effect that reverses neuromuscular block induced by aminosteroid neuromuscular-blocking agents. Sugammadex can interact with other drugs that have the same ste...

Retrospective Analysis of the Safety and Efficacy of Sugammadex Versus Neostigmine for the Reversal of Neuromuscular Blockade in Children.

Sugammadex, with its novel mechanism of action of encapsulation and noncompetitive binding of aminosteroid neuromuscular-blocking agents (rocuronium and vecuronium), may offer distinct advantage to pe...

Neostigmine Versus Sugammadex for Reversal of Neuromuscular Blockade and Effects on Reintubation for Respiratory Failure or Newly Initiated Noninvasive Ventilation: An Interrupted Time Series Design.
