Neuromuscular Monitoring for Patients Receiving Continuous Paralytic or Neuromuscular Blocking Agents: A Review of the Clinical Effectiveness and Guidelines

Published on: February 10, 2016
Result type: Reports
Product Line: Rapid Response
Research Type: Devices and Systems

Key Messages

The value of the train of four (TOF) monitoring of patients in ICU receiving neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) remains unclear. One systematic review, which included three trials comparing TOF monitoring with clinical assessment, reported conflicting results, with benefit being demonstrated with TOF monitoring in one trial and no benefit in two trials. Use of TOF monitoring resulted in lower dose of NMBA being used and a faster recovery of neuromuscular function in one trial but not in two trials.

      Direct Oral Anticoagulants for the Treatment of Venous Thromboembolic Events: Economic Evaluation

      Published on: March 31, 2016
      Result type: Reports
      Product Line: Technology Review

      Venous thromboembolic events (VTEs) include both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). VTEs represent an important disease burden in Canada; they are common and likely to increase as the population ages. The standard of care for patients diagnosed with DVT and/or PE has been systemic anticoagulation with heparin (low-molecular-...
