Table 3 Muscle relaxant recovery profile in both groups

From: Half-dose sugammadex with neostigmine versus full-dose sugammadex for reversal of rocuronium in laparoscopic bariatric surgery

Variable NS group (n = 25) S group (n = 25) 95% CI of mean difference P value  
P.NO- 90% TOF within 5 minutes 10 (40%) 15 (60%) -0.07,0.47 0.26a  
D. R - 90% TOF (seconds) 334.1 ± 99.8 294.1 ± 95.0 -15.4, 95.4 0.15b
D. R-Extubation (seconds) 426.2 ± 98.5 376 ± 90.4 -3.6, 103.9 0.07b
  1. Data are expressed as mean and standard deviation. 95% CI: 95% confidence interval. aMann Whitney independent samples test, bindependent samples t-test. *p is significant when ˂ 0.05.
  2. All the patients reach 90% TOF ratio before 10 minutes after reverse administration in both groups
  3. No signs of residual blockade were documented in PACU in both groups
  4. Abbreviations: group (NS) half dose sugammadex plus neostigmine, group (S) full dose sugammadex group. P.NO- 90% TOF within 5 minutes Number of patients reached 90% TOF within 5 minutes, D. R - 90% TOF (seconds) Duration between IV reversal and 90% TOF (seconds), D. R-Extubation, Duration between IV reversal and extubation
