    • Overview

      Residual neuromuscular blockade has been a long standing problem for post-surgical patients. Residual blockade is one of the many factors that may delay recovery and cause additional complications post-surgery. Implementation of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols has been shown to improve peri- and post-operative care of the surgical patient. This program will provide an overview of the risks associated with residual neuromuscular blockade and discuss pharmaceutical options for reversal. In addition, components of an ERAS protocol will be described and the potential role of reversal agents in ERAS protocols will be identified.
