"We are excited to be working with Securisyn to address the significant issue of unplanned extubations," said David Schechter, President of Meddux Development Corporation.
Sugammadex (trade name: Bridon [R]) had been demonstrated to improve both postoperative respiratory function and cost-effectiveness in morbidly obese patients during general anesthesia (GA).[1] In addition, lidocaine, [sz]-2 agonist, steroid, sevoflurane, epinephrine, magnesium sulfate, and deep extubation had been demonstrated to successfully manage bronchospasm during GA.
Even after extubation the SBP in the gabapentin group was significantly less than the Clonidine group.

Early extubation and early weaning of children from MV after CHD surgery lead to rapid ambulation, improve the cardiopulmonary function, and shorten the PICU and hospital stays.
[11] aimed to determine, in a pilot study, whether measures of upper-limb and neck-muscle strength, as well as muscle endurance, are associated with spontaneous breathing trial (SBT) and/or extubation failure.
Conclusion: There is no difference in frequency of laryngospasm in awake versus deep extubation after intranasal surgery.
in their study concluded that a single-dose bolus injection of dexmedetomidine 0.5 [micro]g /kg before tracheal extubation attenuates airway-circulatory reflexes during extubation in adult patients.
Of the 91 patients treated with M V, 29 (31.9%) patients were found to be extubated due to meeting extubation parameters; 12 of whom were re-intubated because of MV need during ICU follow-up.
Even though the technique is relatively simple, several studies have described adverse clinical events associated to this procedure, from which the following stand out: hypoxemia, with a decrease of oxygen saturation of up to 30 %, presence of arrhythmias, cyanosis, changes in the blood arterial pressure, risks of introducing pathogens into the respiratory tract, accidental extubation and in some cases, although not frequent, death (3).
