Abstract/OtherAbstract:
This review summarizes recent reports on the techniques and the use of methods for monitoring neuromuscular function during anaesthesia. The latest news on the use of acceleromyography in the face and hand, on laryngeal and diaphragmal surface electromyography, on acoustic myography, on evaluation of intense neuromuscular block, and on postoperative residual curarization is presented and discussed. It is concluded that available evidence suggests that more attention should be paid by the anaesthetist to the problems of residual curarization and hence to proper monitoring of neuromuscular function using objective methods.
