  1. Data is expressed as mean and standard deviation. 95% CI: 95% confidence interval. Abbreviations: group (NS) half dose Sugammadex plus neostigmine, group (S) full dose sugammadex group. All drug dosing was according to the ideal body weight. PaO2 arterial Oxygen tension, PaCO2 arterial carbon dioxide tension, SaO2 arterial Oxygen saturation, PACU post anesthesia care unite. p is significant when ˂ 0.05
