Influence of the Drugs Used in Therapy on the Action of the Curariform Substances
ARMY BIOLOGICAL LABS FREDERICK MD
Pagination or Media Count:
This brief review, even though incomplete, has brought out the fact that many drugs have curariform effects as a collateral action, or can profoundly modify the organisms response to the curares. Therefore, the anesthetist should have sound pharmacological knowledge and should keep up to date on the pharmacology of the new compounds. When a patient is to be subjected to anesthesia with use of myorelaxants, an accurate evaluation of the preoperative therapeutic measures taken should always be carried out. Knowledge of these data will be valuable for the purpose of preventing or resolving the so-called prolonged curarizations which are resistant to the anticholinesterases.
