Neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) are used to induce total paralysis to permit intubation and muscle relaxation during surgery or in ventilated patients. NMBAs permit a very rapid induction of neuromuscular blockade at the onset of use, and the reversal agent

Neuromuscular Blocking Agents (NMBAs) are used to produce paralysis of skeletal muscles. They are a high-risk medication used in anaesthesia and other critical care settings. The unintentional administration of an NMBA may result in permanent injury or
