    Department of Anesthesia and Perioperative Care, University of California, San Francisco, CA, USA
    Br J Anaesth 108:444-51. 2012
    ..We determined if sex-related differences exist in the relationship between adductor pollicis (AP) TOF ratio and measures of neuromuscular function commonly used to assess recovery from neuromuscular block...

    Avdeling for anestesi, Oslo universitetssykehus, Aker 0514 Oslo, Norway
    Tidsskr Nor Laegeforen 130:398-401. 2010
    ..The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the history of muscle relaxants, their mode of action and their role in current anaesthetic practice...

    Tom Heier
    Department of Anesthesia, University of California, San Francisco, California, USA
    Anesthesiology 113:825-32. 2010
    ..Thus, normalization of acceleromyography data is necessary. The relationship between normalized acceleromyographic TOF ratio, lung volumes, and clinical signs of residual neuromuscular block was studied...

  5. ncbi request reprint Impact of hypothermia on the response to neuromuscular blocking drugs
    Tom Heier
    Department of Anesthesia, Aker University Hospital, Oslo, Norway
    Anesthesiology 104:1070-80. 2006
    ..The efficacy of neostigmine is maintained during mild hypothermia. The use of a nerve stimulator is strongly recommended to monitor the effect of neuromuscular blocking drugs during intraoperative hypothermia...
