Anaesthesia in the Guillian-Barré syndrome. A case report and recommendations.

Autor(es): Perel A,Reches A,Davidson J T

Resumo: A large proportion of patients with the Guillain Barré syndrome show signs of involvement of the autonomic nervous system beside the better known motor and sensory features of this disease. These patients present a substantial anaesthetic risk because of autonomic dysfunction. We present here an illustrative case in which the administration of a low subarachnoid block resulted in cardiac arrest and offer suggestions for the anaesthetic management of such cases.
