“In the United States approximately 112,000 patients annually are at risk for adverse events associated with discharge from the operating room with residual neuromuscular blockade”

This talk highlights the latest thinking on both monitoring and management of neuromuscular blockade. Where does the data lead us to? How big a problem do they suggest poor efficiency in this area is? What are the realities behind postoperative pulmonary complications? How can we reduce the risk of residual block?
