Credits Available: CME, MOCA® II

Learn how to recognize complications with residual neuromuscular blockade, become familiar with factors that can affect recovery, select reversal agents and doses to safely and effectively facilitate recovery and more.




Item Details

After completing this activity,the learner will be able to: Recognize at least 3 complications associated with residual neuromuscular blockade. Identify at least 2 evidence-based monitoring strategies to determine neuromuscular blockade and recovery. Name at least 4 factors that can affect recovery from neuromuscular blockade. Identify the mechanisms of action associated with emerging pharmacologic agents relating to reversal of neuromuscular blockade. Appropriately select agents that facilitate recovery from neuromuscular blockade, based on both patient- and agent-specific factors. Select reversal agents and doses to safely and effectively facilitate recovery of neuromuscular function.
This activity is intended for Physician Anesthesiologists, the Anesthesia Care Team, and Post-Operative Recovery Room Nurses/Others.
