Residual neuromuscular block poses an unnecessary threat to patients. The basic principle for preventing residual neuromuscular block is quantitative neuromuscular monitoring. Three methods of neuromuscular monitoring will be addressed in this webinar: AMG, KMG and EMG. However, our speakers believe a combination of both neuromuscular monitoring and reversal agents, in terms of an algorithm can reduce incidence and severity of this unwanted anesthetic complication. In this webinar, the speakers discuss an algorithm using quantitative neuromuscular monitoring to reliably detect and reverse a possible residual neuromuscular block in particular clinical solutions.

Featured Speakers:

Manfred Blobner, MD
Professor of Anesthesia
Dept. of Anesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine
School of Medicine
Technical University of Munich, Germany

Matthias Eikermann, MD
Professor of Anesthesia
Harvard Medical School
Boston, MA, USA

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this webinar, the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss the use of neuromuscular monitoring for the prevention of post operative residual neuromuscular block during anesthesia
  2. Describe the three (3) technologies of neuromuscular monitoring
  3. Discuss the use of both neuromuscular monitoring and reversal agents in combination with a clinical algorithm to help reduce anesthetic complications
