The mean baseline values were different between MVC torque and electrically evoked tetanic
torques as well as between tetanic
torques evoked by high and low stimulation frequencies (p < 0.001 for both).
stimulation in stratum radiatum induced LTP in three groups at 25 [micro]A stimulus intensity (Fig.
Long-term potentiation (LTP) is a prolonged increase in synaptic responses that can be induced in certain neural pathways by a brief tetanic
(a) To evaluate tetanic
transients, two trains of high-frequency stimulation (60 Hz for 2 s) were delivered with a recovery time of 5 min between trains.
The predicted blood remifentanil concentration was started at 2.0 ng/ml and increased by 0.3 ng/ml every 30 s until no purposeful movement was observed after a tetanic
stimulus (50 Hz, 80 mA, 0.25 ms pulses for 4 s), which was applied to the wrist using a peripheral nerve stimulator.
Our pilot experiments have shown that peak tetanic
force of SOL decreases by less than 5% during such incubation (unpublished observation).
The torque generated by tetanic
isometric contractions of the ankle dorsiflexor muscles was measured every 10[degrees] of ankle position between 120[degrees] and 40[degrees] of ankle's range of motion (0[degrees] the foot aligned with tibia).
Their contractile parameters were recorded by iWorx advanced animal/human physiology data acquisition unit (AHK/214), including maximum isometric twitch tension, time to peak twitch tension, time taken to relax to 50% of the peak twitch tension, maximum fused tetanic
tension, maximum fused tetanic
tension after the fatigue protocol and tetanic
tension after 5 minutes of rest period following the fatigue protocol.
Sugammadex 20 mg was titrated and within two minutes, normal double-burst stimulation and sus-tained tetanic
responses were noted.
Kinetic changes in tetanic
Ca2+ transients in enzymatically dissociated muscle fibres under repetitive stimulation.
Depression of tetanic
force induced by loaded shortening of frog muscle fibres.
Before applying the tetanic
stimulation, baseline values were recorded at a frequency of 0.033 Hz.
