  1. 1. On the interaction between a neuromuscular blocking agent and regulation of breathing during hypoxia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Nicholas Wyon; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neuromuscular block; TOF ratio; vecuronium; ventilatory response; chemoreceptors; carotid body;

    Abstract : It was previously generally agreed that a mechanical train-of-four (TOF) ratio >0.70 represented an adequate recovery of respiratory function after neuromuscular blockade. Normal respiratory parameters at this level of recovery and during air breathing support this view. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nicotinic transmission and drugs in anesthesia : Neuromuscular blocking agents and propofol - consequences for carotid body function

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Physiology and Pharmacology

    Author : Malin Jonsson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Carotid body; chemoreceptors; neuromuscular blocking agents; propofol; acetylcholine; nicotinic acetylcholine receptors;

    Abstract : The carotid body is the global oxygen sensor of the human body. Acute hypoxia elicits instant hyperventilation mediated from the carotid body type 1 cells, where nicotinic transmission is a key component in oxygen sensing and signalling. READ MORE

  3. 3. Studies on the halothane-diethyl-ether azeotrope

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Sigga Kalman; [1994]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Requirements for a safe standard for anaesthesia under primitiveconditions differ from those under peaceful circumstances. It is important not to blunt the reflexes that guard vital functions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pharyngeal function, airway protection and anesthetic agents

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Surgical Science

    Author : Eva Sundman; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Aspiration; postoperative pulmonary complications; hypoxia; sedation.;

    Abstract : Anesthesia related complications occur most frequently in the immediate postoperative period. The three most common conditions associated with such events are ventilatory failure, airway obstruction and aspiration. The pharynx is essential for respiration and protection of the upper airway.
