New Study Confirms TwitchView® Quantitative Monitor for Neuromuscular Blockade is Comparable to Gold Standard Mechanomyography

Seattle, WA, October 18, 2019 --(PR.com)-- Blink Device Company announced today that a study comparing the TwitchView® quantitative train-of-four (TOF) electromyography-based monitor to accelerometry and mechanomyography has been published in the journal Anaesthesia (https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/anae.14872). The results demonstrate that the TwitchView monitor closely resembles mechanomyography, often considered to be the laboratory gold standard, while accelerometry frequently produces train-of-four ratio values > 1.0, complicating the interpretation of acceleromyography results in the clinical setting.

Electromyographic TOF Twitch Monitors Shown Closest to Manual Palpation

Montreal—Although peripheral nerve stimulation is commonly used to assess neuromuscular transmission when dosing neuromuscular blocking agents and reversal drugs, quantitative twitch monitors have been shown to be more accurate than palpation for measuring the train-of-four (TOF) ratio.

But which type of monitor—mechanomyography, acceleromyography or electromyography—is most accurate?

New research has concluded that the three techniques have substantial agreement, but electromyography most closely emulates manual palpation and acceleromyography frequently underestimates twitch counts.
