How effective is Escre rectal kit 500 mg from Japan for sedation and hypnosis (chloral hydrate)?
Escre rectal kits contain chloral hydrate, a geminal diol produced from chlorine and ethanol in acidic solution. It works by enhancing the GABA receptor complex, decreasing the excitability of neurons and subsequently reducing the communication between neurons. As the result, Escre rectal kits provide calming effect on many of the functions of the brain and anticonvulsive effect.
Who should use Escre rectal kit 500 mg from Japan?
Escre rectal kits are used for sedation and hypnosis at laboratory tests (such as electroencephalography, electrocardiography and electromyography), especially for pediatric patients, and for treatment of convulsion difficult for treatment with intravenous injection. Studies involving more than 2000 children undergoing neurodiagnostic procedures in hospitals showed that chloral hydrate is relatively safe and has a low sedation failure rate when a child needs to remain still for 30-45 minutes in order to get diagnostics (Choong Yi Fong, Chee Geap Tay et al. “Chloral hydrate as a sedating agent for neurodiagnostic procedures in children”. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, 2017, 11(11): CD011786).
