Briggs, S., Goodyear, P., Thomas, R., Strike, P. and Smith, D. (2006) A national audit of the use of neuromuscular blocking drugs in cardiac anaesthesia Anaesthesia, 61, (1), p.95. (doi:10.1111/j.1365-2044.2005.04439.x).

Record type: Article


Residual neuromuscular blockade contributes to postoperative morbidity and mortality and is more prevalent with long acting nondepolarising neuromuscular blocking drugs such as pancuronium [1]. Reducing time between surgery and extubation may lead to residual neuromuscular blockade in cardiac patients, particularly with long acting drugs [2]. We performed an audit of use of neuromuscular blocking drugs in the United Kingdom between 2002 and 2004.
