There is one clinical trial.
This is a retrospective case-controlled study of the effect of the use of a neuromuscular blockade (NMB) monitor on the consumption of NMB agents in patients under mechanical ventilation in the context of COVID-19. The use of NMB agents during mechanical ventilation in patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) improves respiratory support conditions and reduces mortality. In the context of COVID-19 pandemic, patients with severe forms of the disease hospitalized in intensive care units (ICU) benefit from prolonged mechanical ventilation with frequent use of NMB agents. Large amount of such patient admitted in a short time has led to a shortage of NMB agents, particularly cisatracurium. The use of NMB monitors (for example - Train of Four (TOF)) is a well-established practice in general anesthesia. There is no recommendation for the use of NMB monitor in ICU patients available up to date. However, in the attempt to reduce the consumption of NMB agents a NMB monitoring was used in ICU patients during the COVID-19 pandemic at university hospitals of Hospices Civil de Lyon, with the endorsement of the local College of Anesthetists. The aim of our study is to evaluate if the use of a NMB monitor decreases the consumption of NMB agents in patients under mechanical ventilation in the context of COVID-19.
Description: We measured the total NMB agents consumption during the stay: cisatracurium and/or atracurium (milligram). Nurses report continuous infusion rates of NMB agents. By extracting this data we were able to retrieve the total approximate dose (we're missing the bolus doses).Measure: NMB agents consumption Time: ICU discharge an average of 4 weeks

An HTML report was created for each of the unique drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms associated with COVID-19 clinical trials. Each report contains a list of either the drug, the MeSH terms, or the HPO terms. All of the terms in a category are displayed on the left-hand side of the report to enable easy navigation, and the reports contain a list of correlated drugs, MeSH, and HPO terms. Further, all reports contain the details of the clinical trials in which the term is referenced. Every clinical trial report shows the mapped HPO and MeSH terms, which are also hyperlinked. Related HPO terms, with their associated genes, protein mutations, and SNPs are also referenced in the report.Drug Reports MeSH Reports HPO Reports
