Neuromuscular blocking agents

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Neuromuscular blocking agents bind to acetylcholine receptors postsynaptically and inhibit the action of acetylcholine. This blocks neuromuscular transmission and causes paralysis of the muscle.

Neuromuscular blocking agents are used as an adjunct to anesthesia, only when artificial ventilation is available, to produce muscle relaxation in order to prevent movement of muscle during surgery.
