The Effect of Three Different Applications on Rocuronium Injection Pain: A Double Blinded, Randomized Clinical Study

Rocuronium induces severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anaesthesia induction. We suggested that remifentanyl can be used as intravenous bolus to prevent rocuronium induced pain as effective as remifentanyl and lidocaine administration with venous occlusion.


Background: Some agents such as rocuronium and propofol induce severe and noxious pain when administered intravenously during anesthesia induction. This causes to additional stress for the patient who is already stressful due to operation. The purpose of our study was to compare the effects of remifentanyl with two different administration methods and lidocaine on rocuronium injection pain.

Recurrent Torsades de Pointes Due to Amiodarone Toxicity Treated Successfully with Lidocaine


The Editor,


Amiodarone is a potent antiarrhythmic agent that is used to treat ventricular arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation. Proarrythmias due to amiodarone therapy is rare. We discuss a case who had amiodarone-induced incessant Torsades de Pointes (TdP), that could only be suppressed by lidocaine.
