Respiratory Failure
ARDS management

Neuromuscular blockers (NMBs) can be a useful adjunct to improve oxygenation and (maybe) reduce mortality in severe ARDS. This resource describes the physiology of muscle relaxation in ARDS, explains how to safely use NMBs as well as some basics about associated monitoring equipment: EEG/Bispectral index (BIS) monitors are used to (maybe) reduce over- or under-sedation and Train of Four (TOF) monitors are used to avoid excess blockade.
