  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to examine the precision, bias and limits of agreement when monitoring the neuromuscular block with acceleromyography with and without preload and compare the method to the gold standard, mechanomyography.


Condition Intervention Phase
Neuromuscular Blockade
Device: Hand Adapter (Organon, Oss, the Netherlands)
Device: Placebo
Phase 4

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: Performance of Acceleromyography With and Without Preload During Neuromuscular Blockade

Further study details as provided by Rigshospitalet, Denmark:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The precision of acceleromyography with and without preload during recovery

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Bias and limits of agreement for acceleromyography (AMG) with and without preload compared to mechanomyography (MMG) during recovery
  • All the following outcomes obtained with AMG with and without preload are compared to MMG. Furthermore the responses are compared when the AMG-values are "normalized":
  • Bias og limits of agreement between control TOF
  • Onset time
  • Time to reappearance of T1, T2, T3 and T4
  • Twitch height of T1 at reappearance of T1, T2, T3 and T4
  • Time to T1=25%
  • Interval 25-75%
  • Time to TOF-ratio = 0.9 and 1.0
  • Time to final T1
  • Time to final TOF ratio

Estimated Enrollment: 60
Study Start Date: March 2005

Device: Hand Adapter (Organon, Oss, the Netherlands)
Randomization of acceleromyography with or without Hand Adapter to dominant or non-dominant arm. Contralateral neuromuscular transmission is measured with mechanomyography (The gold standard of neuromuscular monitoring)
Placebo Comparator: 3
Acceleromyography without Hand Adapter on dominant arm
Device: Placebo
placebo
Placebo Comparator: 4
Acceleromygraphy without Hand Adapter on non-dominant arm
Device: Placebo
