Stanford University

Neuromuscular Monitoring Course

Stanford University via edX



This CME activity is designed for all anesthesia care providers to learn more about residual neuromuscular blockade and neuromuscular monitoring. Objective neuromuscular monitoring is standard best practice to rule out residual neuromuscular blockade and improve patient safety.Real-life patient scenarios presented in short video-based sections are used to cover the educational objectives of neuromuscular monitoring practice.

You will learn more about residual neuromuscular blockade, as well as he different types of neuromuscular monitoring (subjective vs. objective neuromuscular monitoring) and stimulation patterns. We will show a step-by-step approach to assemble objective neuromuscular monitoring equipment. We discuss factors impacting the duration of action of non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking drugs and address the different reversing agents.
