For instance, in a TOF each twitch is weaker than the last; the last twitch is the first to disappear with non-depolarizing blockade, while the first twitch is the last to disappear. This non-depolarizing fade is also seen in DBS and tetany, though there is still post-tetanic potentiation.
TOF is of limited use during deep blockade. The clinician is unable to assess the degree of muscle paralysis with certainty. The answer to this problem was found by Viby-Mogensen et al.,29 who showed that post-tetanic potentiation is a useful tool for the accurate assessment of the degree of NDPNMB. This means that the clinician may observe, after tetanic stimulation, responses to single stimuli where they did not exist previously. They suggested the following sequence: tetanic stimulus at 50Hz for 5s, stop for 3s and follow with 20 single stimuli at 1-s intervals. In patients with a deep block, only one post-tetanic contraction is detectable at first (PTC: 1). As recovery of the NDP muscle blockade progresses, the PTC increases. These authors were able to show that the PTC is a very practical indicator of how the NDP neuromuscular block evolves. Post-tetanic count is also a valid method for predicting time of onset of the first TOF twitch.
