We thank Drs. Phillips and Stewart for their interest in the work by Murphyet al.1 and our accompanying editorial.2 They “respectfully questioned five areas of the study” by Murphyet al., and we are delighted to respond; we feel this topic has significant implications on clinical care and that a thorough understanding of the effects of neostigmine on neuromuscular transmission is paramount for optimal anesthetic care and patient safety.

Authors: Piazena H, Müller W, Pendl W, von Ah S, Cap VH, Hug PJ, Sidler X, Pluschke G, Vaupel P Abstract Purpose: The temporal and spatial formation of the temperature field and its changes during/upon water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA)-irradiation in porcine skin and subcutis were investigated in vivo in order to get a detailed physical basis for thermotherapy of superficial tumors and infections caused by thermosensitive microbial pathogens (e.g., Mycobacterium ulcerans causing Buruli ulcer). Methods: Local wIRA-hyperthermia was performed in 11 anesthetized piglets using 85.0 mW cm-2, 103.2 mW cm...

In this study, we hypothesized that preoperative pregabalin reduces inhaled isoflurane requirements. METHODS: We have investigated the effectiveness of preoperative oral pregabalin 150 mg in women undergoing elective open total abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia. A prospective, randomized, double-blind, controlled study was conducted in a university hospital. The study included 50 women (18-60 yrs.), ASA I or II, admitted for abdominal hysterectomy under general anesthesia. Exclusion criteria were allergy to pregabalin; calcium channel blockers, antiepileptic drugs, antidepressant drugs, any analgesics, se...

Authors: Chang L, Luo Q, Chai Y, Shu H Abstract Accidental awareness during general anaesthesia may cause many intraoperative discomforts and bring further moderate to severe long-term symptoms including flashbacks, nightmares, hyperarousal or post-traumatic stress disorder. The incidence of awareness varied from 0.017% to 4% among studies. The relatively reliable incidence of intraoperative awareness with postoperative recall is 0.02%. The reason causing awareness was unclear. Insufficient anaesthetic dosing was thought as the principal cause. Even awareness was not comprehensively understood, some endeavors have ...
