Conference paper


The introduction of post-tetanic pattern of nerve stimulation (PTC) has made it possible to quantify an intense non-depolarizing block not responsive to single twitch or train of four (TOF) stimulation . Using this technique we have examined the reversal characteristics of two levels of intense (100%) mivacurium block by equipotent doses of neostigmine and edrophonium.
