Hiccup and ephedrine

Canadian Anaesthetists' Society Journal
Y Z SohnR L Katz


Twelve patients who developed hiccup during anaesthesia and surgery were treated successfully with an intravenous injection of ephedrine 5 mg (eleven cases) or 10 mg (one case). In nine patients ephedrine was successful after traditional methods had been tried and failed, and in three patients ephedrine was the only agent given. We conclude that ephedrine is a safe and easy mode of treatment for intractable hiccup during anaesthesia and surgery.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
