A test dose of edrophonium
to assess whether anticholinesterase therapy may be of benefit is generally recommended.
Test results from a complete blood count, biochemistry profile, whole-body radiographs, needle electromyography of the leg muscles, and an edrophonium
challenge test were within reference limits.
Sugammadex reversal of rocuronium-induced neuromuscular blockade: a comparison with neostigmine-glycopyrrolate and edrophonium
6 nmol/I) and a clear improvement in eye muscle weakness a few seconds after the administration of edrophonium
Separation and detection of a mixture of 4 cationic inhibitors--tacrine, edrophonium
, and tetramethyl- and tetraethyl-ammonium chloride--was accomplished within 70 s with a multiplexed screening device combining flow injection analysis and microchip CE separation.
The working diagnosis is myasthenia gravis, although there is no response to edrophonium
and nystagmus is not common in myasthenia.
She was given an edrophonium
test and her symptoms improved.
Antagonism of rapacuronium using edrophonium
or neostigmine: pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics.
51] Since then, apomorphine has mainly been used as a diagnostic tool to predict or confirm dopaminergic responsiveness in parkinsonian syndromes in a manner similar to that of edrophonium
in myasthenia gravis[55,81] and as an alternative in the treatment of advanced PD complicated by otherwise drug-resistant motor complications.
Tensilon--or, generically, edrophonium
choride--has the power to restore almost normal muscular function almost instantly, in a matter of moments.
The common diagnostic test is using the anticholinesterase edrophonium
(tensilon test) or neostigmine for reversal of muscle weakness.
test was positive with reversal of neck weakness to 5/5 power.
