This activity is supported by an educational grant from Merck.

Intraoperative use of neuromuscular blocking (NMB) drugs and postoperative residual weakness have been identified as key risk factors in anesthetic-related morbidity and mortality, as well as increased overall costs. Residual neuromuscular block in the postoperative phase is increasingly recognized as a complication of the use of non-depolarizing NMB drugs.

Item Details

The American Society of Anesthesiologists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to recognize the risk factors associated with preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative neuromuscular blockade and implement safe and effective monitoring of residual postoperative neuromuscular blockade and recovery.
This activity is intended for Physician Anesthesiologists, Anesthesiologist Assistants, CRNAs, Post-Operative Recovery Room Nurses/Critical Care Nurses/Others, Ambulatory and OR Care Team Members, Perioperative pharmacists and the Anesthesia Care Team.

The American Society of Anesthesiologists remains strongly committed to providing the best available evidence-based clinical information to participants of this educational activity and requires an open disclosure of any potential conflict of interest identified by our faculty members. It is not the intent of the American Society of Anesthesiologists to eliminate all situations of potential conflict of interest, but rather to enable those who are working with the American Society of Anesthesiologists to recognize situations that may be subject to question by others. All disclosed conflicts of interest are reviewed by the educational activity course director/chair to ensure that such situations are properly evaluated and, if necessary, resolved. The American Society of Anesthesiologists educational standards pertaining to conflict of interest are intended to maintain the professional autonomy of the clinical experts inherent in promoting a balanced presentation of science. Through our review process, all American Society of Anesthesiologists CME activities are ensured of independent, objective, scientifically balanced presentations of information. Disclosure of any or no relationships will be made available for all educational activities.
