Neuromuscular Blocking

Neuromuscular blocking drugs used in anaesthesia are also known as muscle relaxants. By specific blockade of the neuromuscular junction they enable light anaesthesia to be used with adequate relaxation of the muscles of the abdomen and diaphragm. They also relax the vocal cords and allow the passage of the tracheal tube.

Patients who have received a neuromuscular blocking drug should always have their respiration assisted or controlled until the drug has been inactivated or antagonized . They should also receive sufficient concomitant inhalational or intravenous anaesthetic or sedative drugs to prevent awareness.
