Estimated Study Completion Date: October 2015
Estimated Primary Completion Date: October 2015 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Group 1 : (NS)

Group 1 Drug combination:

patients receive half of the recommended dose of sugammadex plus dose of neostigmine"

  1. Sugammadex IV= -1 mg/kg( moderate NMB) or

    • 2 mg/kg (deep NMB)
  2. neostigmine IV = 50mcg/kg
  3. glycopyrrolate 10 mcg/kg
Drug: Sugammadex
half dose
Drug: Neostigmine
IV = 50mcg/kg
Drug: glycopyrrolate
Active Comparator: Group 2 : (S)

patients receive Full recommended dose of sugammadex

Sugammadex IV= 2mg/kg (Moderate NMB) 4mg/kg ( Deep NMB)

Drug: Sugammadex
full dose

Detailed Description:
The investigators' aim is to prove that half dose sugammadex in combination with neostigmine 0.05 mg/kg is non-inferior to the recommended dose of sugammadex for the reversal of deep ( absence of Trian of Four response :TOF) or moderate ( TOF 1 or 2 twiches) muscle paralysis in patients undergoing surgery under general anesthesia.
