Abstract
Postoperative residual neuromuscular blockade (PRNB) is one of the most serious complications regarding the intraoperative use of muscle relaxants and remains a high incidence in the workplaces of practical anesthesia. Clinical symptoms of PRNB are very variable from mild diplopia or general weakness to serious respiratory distress and may progress to hypoxia. Therefore, PRNB can increase postoperative morbidity. Preventing illness is the most important thing to the anesthesiologists when using muscle relaxants. There are many articles reporting the study of PRNB. In this review article, we will discuss the methods to reduce the incidence of PRNB.
Key Words: Anesthesia, Complications, Neuromuscular blockade, Respiration
