Welcome to this webinar series presented by the Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland on Neuromuscular Blockade (NMB) Monitoring: Enhancing Clinical Practice. This webinar was sponsored by GE Healthcare.
In this first part, Dr. Glenn Murphy focuses on myths and facts related to neuromuscular management and the reasons why current practices fail.
"Neostigmine DOES NOT produce reliable and rapid reversal. Quantitative monitoring should be used to assess for recovery because reversal times are slow and highly variable with this agent"
Dr. Glenn Murphy

His areas of interest include the incidence of postoperative residual neuromuscular blockade, complications associated with residual neuromuscular blockade, and the impact of neuromuscular monitoring on patient outcomes.
