Intubation may induce electromyographic (EMG) activity, causing depth of anaesthesia monitors to show misleadingly high values. The investigators want to investigate whether this EMG activity can be visually seen on the anaesthesia monitor.
Patients are anaesthetized with target controlled infusion of propofol. To facilitate intubation, the patients are randomized to receive rocuronium either 0,6 mg/kg or 1,2 mg/kg. BIS, Entropy and the biosignal collected with the Entropy strip are collected on a computer. The visible biosignal on the anaesthesia monitor is recorded with a video camera. BIS, Entropy, biosignal and video clip of the anaesthesia monitor will be analyzed in detail.

Minimising rocuronium administration during paediatric surgery helps to reduce the incidence of residual muscular blockade.
The duration of rocuronium in patients with BMI more than 30 kg m is prolonged. Whether the reverse is true when BMI is less than 18.5 kg m is unclear.
A 42-year-old man developed anaphylactic shock in the postanesthesia care unit. Initially, sugammadex, a reversal agent for a non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, was suspected as the causat...
Recent data shows that a neuromuscular block (NMB) induced by administration of high doses of rocuronium improves surgical conditions in certain procedures. However, there are limited data on the effe...
