Introduction: Monitoring of neuromuscular blockade helps to detect the depth of neuromuscular blockade and adequacy of recovery of neuromuscular function following injection of an anticholinesterase drug.
Methodology: This study was conducted after getting institutional approval. One hundred and forty patients belonging to ASA-PS I & II were included in this study. Patients were monitored with three electrode electrocardiogram monitoring, pulse oximetry, nasopharyngeal temperature and non invasive blood pressure.
Results: Although the 'p' value between duration of anaesthesia and TOF and DBS equal is highly significant (p<0.001), the corresponding `r value is not very strong.
Conclusion: Absence of fade on DBS correlates better with clinical recovery of neuromuscular blockade, than absence of fade on TOF stimulation.
