  • Delayed recovery from paralysis associated with plasma cholinesterase deficiency. [Journal Article]
  • SSpringerplus 2016; 5(1):1887
  • Zhou W, Lv S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Plasma cholinesterase deficiency is a genetic or acquired condition. The most obvious feature of this genetic variants is prolonged recovery from paralysis in which administrated with succinylcholine or mivacurium. Once this is suspected, a laboratory test is important. There is no specific treatment for plasma cholinesterase deficiency. The best and safest way is to let the patient recover spontaneously. Mechanical ventilation support is important.
  • Observational study on patterns of neuromuscular blockade reversal. [Journal Article]
  • BABMC Anesthesiol 2016 Oct 22; 16(1):103
  • Dubovoy T, Housey M, … Kheterpal S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Neither neostigmine dosing nor times to extubation were affected by the depth of the neuromuscular blockade prior to reversal. The need for additional reversal, or rescue, correlated strongly with the depth of NMB. There was significant variability in neostigmine dosing across the BMI categories. Underweight patients received relatively lower NMB doses while simultaneously receiving relatively higher reversal doses, and the opposite was true for patients with BMI >40.
