Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) enable anesthesia providers to temporarily paralyze patients during anesthesia. The introduction of NMBAs in anesthesia meant that optimal surgical conditions could be achieved with lower doses of volatile or intravenous anesthetics, improving hemodynamic stability. Although a powerful anesthetic tool, neuromuscular blockade (NMB) has the potential for significant adverse outcomes. Hence, providers need to be well-versed with the latest options for neuromuscular blockade and reversal. In this educational activity, expert clinicians review conventional agents used in NMB reversal, discuss new and emerging NMB reversal agents, as well as discuss the importance of multidisciplinary care in patients undergoing NMB reversal.
