Won Kyu Choi, Jae Myeong Lee, Jong Bun Kim, Kyong Shil Im, Bong Hee Park, Su Bin Yoo, Cha Yun Park
RATIONALE: Diffuse alveolar hemorrhage (DAH) is a rare life-threatening condition that accompanies general anesthesia. Negative-pressure pulmonary edema (NPPE) is a rare cause of DAH. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 25-year-old male patient developed hemoptysis following remifentanil administration by bolus injection with sugammadex at the emergence from general anesthesia. DIAGNOSIS: Chest x-ray and computed tomography showed DAH. INTERVENTIONS: Conservative care was provided with 4L of oxygen via nasal prong, 20 mg of Lasix and 2500 mg of tranexamic acid...

BACKGROUND: Sugammadex, a γ-cyclodextrin derivative, belongs to a new class of selective relaxant binding agents. Sugammadex was approved 10-years ago by the European medicines agency and today is used in clinical anesthesia and emergency medicine globally. In this review, indications for neuromuscular block, the challenge of neuromuscular monitoring and the practice of under-dosing of sugammadex as a potential cost-saving strategy are discussed. MAIN BODY: Reversal of neuromuscular block is important to accelerate the spontaneous recovery of neuromuscular function...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Sugamadex is a modified gamma-cyclodextrin, the first selective agent for reversal of neuromuscular blockade induced by steroidal non-depolarizing muscle relaxants, with greater affinity for rocuronium. In this article we present a case of severe bradycardia and asystole following sugammadex administration. CASE REPORT: A 54-year-old male patient, ASA II, with a history of hypertension, dyslipidemia and obesity, who underwent an emergency umbilical herniorrhaphy under balanced general anesthesia...

Postlaparotomy management for elderly patients with underlying comorbidities is always a challenge because of poor cardiorespiratory reserves and prolonged effect of anesthetic drugs. For these reasons, such patients usually require intensive care unit (ICU) admission in the postoperative period. We report a case of an 85-year-old chronic smoker with controlled diabetes mellitus who needed an emergency laparotomy for a perforated gastric ulcer. Unfortunately, there was a shortage of ICU backup. With the successful conduct of an early surgery using combined general and regional anesthesia, the use of sugammadex (Bridion, Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp, Oss, the Netherlands) as a reversal agent, a skilled surgeon, and good postanesthesia care, the patient did not require ICU admission...

Objective Emergence agitation (EA) has a multifactorial origin, and the effect of sugammadex on EA has not been established. We investigated the effect of sugammadex on EA incidence and severity. Methods We performed a retrospective study of children aged 1 to 13 years who underwent strabismus surgery. Patients received sugammadex or conventional neuromuscular reversal agents. The primary outcome variables were EA incidence and severity. Secondary outcome variables were postoperative fentanyl use, postoperative nausea and vomiting, time from reversal agent administration to extubation, time from the end of surgery to arrival in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) and time spent in the PACU...

BACKGROUND: Sugammadex rapidly reverses deep neuromuscular blockade, but owing to cost, questions remain about its optimal utilization. After the unrestricted introduction of sugammadex at Emory University Hospital, we hypothesized that reductions would be demonstrated in the primary outcome of post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) mechanical ventilation (MV) and secondary outcomes of PACU length of stay (LOS) and emergence time (surgery end to anesthesia end time in the PACU). METHODS: This retrospective observational study included patients undergoing general anesthesia over a 12-month period...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: In 2015 practice management guidelines on prehospital emergency anesthesia in adults were published in Germany. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether emergency physicians follow these guidelines in daily practice and to assess their level of experience with the use of anesthetic agents. MATERIAL AND METHODS: In an online survey the way of induction of preclinical anesthesia (including preoxygenation time and applied monitoring techniques) was assessed with the help of virtual scenarios based on the guidelines...

Sugammadex, a modified gamma-cyclodextrin, has changed clinical practice of neuromuscular reversal dramatically. With the introduction of this selective relaxant binding agent, rapid and reliable neuromuscular reversal from any depth of block became possible. Sugammadex can reverse neuromuscular blockade without the muscarinic side effects typically associated with the administration of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors. However, what remained unchanged is the incidence of residual neuromuscular blockade. It is known that sugammadex cannot always prevent its occurrence, if appropriate dosing is not chosen based on the level of neuromuscular paralysis prior to administration determined by objective neuromuscular monitoring...

BACKGROUND: Cough on emergence has been reported as a common adverse reaction with sugammadex reversal. We investigated if staggering the dose of sugammadex will reduce emergence cough in a single-center, randomized, double-blinded study. METHODS: A hundred and twenty ASA 1-3 adults were randomly reversed with 1 mg/kg sugammadex prior to extubation followed by another 1 mg/kg immediately after extubation (staggered group), single dose of 2 mg/kg sugammadex (single bolus group) or neostigmine 0...

Perioperative anaphylaxis is an iatrogenic clinical condition, most often after anesthetic induction. Several mechanisms are implicated, including IgE- and non-IgE-mediated mechanisms. Perioperative anaphylaxis tends to be severe and has a higher mortality rate than anaphylaxis in other settings. This is partly due to factors that impair early recognition of anaphylaxis. Neuromuscular blocking agents, latex containing products, and antibiotics are the most common etiology. Chlorhexidine and dyes are increasingly culprits...

We present a case in which rocuronium was applied for muscle relaxation following the administration of sugammadex. An emergency surgery under general anesthesia was planned for a 43-year-old male patient due to an L1 vertebral corpus and right tibia-fibula shaft fracture. Anesthesia was induced with fentanyl, propofol and lidocaine. After applying only 30mg of the total induction dose of rocuronium, it was learned that the neurological examination should be controlled again from the surgeon because of the controversial of the neurological deficit...

BACKGROUND: Myaesthenia Gravis is an autoimmune disorder that results in increased sensitivity to neuromuscular blockers. Anaesthesia and surgery in patients with Myaesthenia Gravis is associated with an increased incidence of complications, including post operative ventilation. We report the successful use of intra-operative train of four ratio monitoring and Sugammadex to reverse rocuronium induced neuromuscular blockade in an elderly octagenarian with Myaesthenia Gravis undergoing an emergency laporotomy...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To revise the current literature on concepts for neuromuscular block management. Moreover, consequences of incomplete neuromuscular recovery on patients' postoperative pulmonary outcome are evaluated as well. RECENT FINDINGS: The incidence of residual paralysis may be as high as 70% and even small degrees of residual paralysis may have clinical consequences. Neostigmine should not be given before return of the fourth response of the train-of-four-stimulation and no more than 40-50 μg/kg should be given...

Sugammadex is a selective chemical agent that can reverse neuromuscular blockade induced by vecuronium and rocuronium. The aim of this report is to discuss the effectiveness of sugammadex in the reversal of neuromuscular blockade in children younger than 2 years. A 16-month-old boy, weighing 10 kg, was admitted to the pediatric emergency department due to choking, cyanosis, and severe respiratory distress that occurred while he was eating peanuts. In the emergency department, the patient's condition deteriorated, and he went into respiratory arrest...

INTRODUCTION: Acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (neostigmine, edrophonium) and encapsulating agents (sugammadex and calabadion) can be used to reverse residual neuromuscular blockade (NMB). AREAS COVERED: This review provides information about efficacy, effectiveness, and side effects of drugs (acetylcholinesterase inhibitors and encapsulating agents) used to reverse neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs). EXPERT OPINION: The therapeutic range of acetylcholinesterase-inhibitors is narrow and effectiveness studies demonstrate clinicians don't use these unspecific reversal agents effectively to increase postoperative respiratory safety...

PURPOSE: Myasthenia gravis (MG) is an autoimmune disease interfering with neuromuscular transmission. Patients are at risk of postoperative residual curarization (PORC) if nondepolarizing muscle relaxants are used. Clinically inapparent insufficient muscle strength may result in hypoventilation and postoperative bronchopneumonia. We describe a cohort of 117 cases in which sugammadex was used in MG patients undergoing surgery with muscle relaxation with rocuronium. METHODS AND PATIENTS: We anesthetized 117 patients with MG using rocuronium and sugammadex as neuromuscular blockade reversal agent...

Takotsubo cardiomyopathy is a cardiac syndrome characterized by transient left ventricular dysfunction. A 61-year-old woman underwent laparoscopic cholecystectomy under general anesthesia. During recovery from general anesthesia, several arrhythmias occurred without cardiac collapse following desflurane discontinuation and sugammadex sodium administration. She had a chest pain after extubation, with ST segment elevation in leads aV(L) and V2-4. Emergency left ventricular angiogram revealed no significant coronary stenosis, and excessive contraction of the base and severe hypokinesis of the apex suggested Takotsubo cardiomyopathy...

A 58-year-old man with no history of cardiac disease was scheduled for a cerebral aneurysm clipping surgery. Anesthesia was administered with propofol, rocuronium, fentanyl, and remifentanil. At the end of the surgery, extubation was performed 3 min after the administration of 200 mg sugammadex, along with a simultaneous blood-pressure decrease with ST elevation on lead II. Cardiopulmonary resuscitation was per- formed owing to the occurrence of lethal arrhythmia, and the patient was successfully resuscitated...
