Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to see how long does the effect of a post-tetanic facilitation last on subsequent train-of-four. The investigators hypothesis is that the effect last at least 30 minutes.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Post-tetanic Count on One Arm, the Other Arm is the Control Device: NMT (a device that can do neurostimulation and can record the response on the stimulation by Datex)

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 22 participants
Observational Model: Case-Control
Time Perspective: Prospective
Study Start Date : March 2010
Actual Primary Completion Date : April 2010
Actual Study Completion Date : April 2010

Group/Cohort Intervention/treatment
Patient-control Device: NMT (a device that can do neurostimulation and can record the response on the stimulation by Datex)
on one side, we do a post-tetanic count, on the other side we don't, after, we do train-of-four on both sides and check the difference




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. The difference at 30 minutes after the post-tetanic count between the TOF% in both arms, we expect a difference of more than 10%

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. The difference at 30 minutes after the post-tetanic count on the T1% (of the calibrated T1) in both arms, we expect a difference of more than 10%
  2. The difference of the slope of recuperation on TOF and T1% after a post-tetanic count vs the control arm that had no tetanic stimulation
