Neuromuscular-blocking drugs prohibit transmission of a neural signal at the neuromuscular junction, causing paralysis of the affected skeletal muscles. During this course, Allan Schwartz, DDS, CRNA reviews the anatomy of the neuromuscular junction and the mechanism of skeletal muscle activation (Train of Four or "TOF") for muscle movement. Dr. Schwartz also discusses steps for the use and monitoring of a neuromuscular paralytic (Succinylcholine) for the treatment of laryngospasm. It is worth 1.5 CE.
