At these same times, patients rated their nausea on a cm VAS scale. Zhuo M, Gebhart GF. The sensory block onset was defined as time from intrathecal injection to lack of pain in T10 level with pin prick test.

Then bilateral sensory and motor block after the injection and each min then to rise to T10 level, were evaluated and recorded by a blinded observer. According to the obtained results, it may be concluded that magnesium sulphate is a safe and effective adjuvant for increasing the onset time of motor block.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether a combination of low-dose neostigmine IT would enhance analgesia of a fixed dose of fentanyl IT, in patients undergoing unilateral total knee replacement TKR surgery with spinal anesthesia.

Due to the fact that both neostigmine and magnesium sulphate have shown effects on intrtahecal anesthetic effects, we considered these two drugs and compared their equivalent doses effects as an adjuvant.


Cholinomimetic drugs, including cholinergic receptor agonists and acetyl cholinesterase inhibitor known to produce analgesia in various species.

While as our findings showed that neostigmine could prolong the onset time and it should be considered since usage especially in urgent cases need faster anesthesia. Neowtigmine at a dose of 25mcg in combination with hyperbaric bupivacaine and fentanyl given intrathecally provided statistically insignificant haemodynamic stability in male patients that had surgical procedures under spinal anaesthesia.

P The mean age, weight, heights, duration of surgery or ASA status were comparable in all three groups. Phase I safety assessment of intrathecal neostigmine in humans. Nausea and vomiting started within 30 minutes and lasted for more than one hour in patients in spite of metoclopramide or droperidol We believe that it is not a favorite effect for starting a surgery but in this study we found this unpleasant effect.

A dose-independent reduction of postoperative analgesia requirement and dose-dependent increase in the incidence of PONV has been demonstrated using various doses of IT neostigmine with bupivacaine. We preferred to use a smaller itrathecal of magnesium and neostigmine that would not cause any side-effects.

There was no bradycardia, tachycardia and sedation in group I. The total number of rescue analgesics administered in 24 h was noted.

Phase I tolerability and safety study of the commercially available neostigmine formulations in human volunteers found no evidence of toxicity. After adequate sensory blockade from spinal bupivacaine was established, all patients received propofol by constant intravenous infusion that was titrated to deep sedation during surgery.

A possible explanation for the effect of small doses of IT neostigmine in enhancing the duration of analgesia produced by opioid relates to the mechanism of action of opioids in intrafhecal analgesia.
