Abstract

Mg salts are often administered to treat ventricular arrhythmia after myocardial infarction or during cardiovascular surgery. Although the doses used are much smaller than those used in toxemia of pregnancy, whether such lowdose Mg therapy might affect the neuromuscular transmission remains debatable. Therefore in this study we evaluated whether small doses of MgSO4 would change the twitch response and refractory period in neuromuscular junction in human.
