    About the Lecture

    The lecture Neuromuscular Blockers – Skeletal Muscle Relaxants by Pravin Shukle, MD is from the course CNS - Pharmacology. It contains the following chapters:

    • Depolarizing Neuromuscular Blockers
    • Nondepolarizing Neuromuscular Blockers

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. A 34 year old pregnant woman with history of pelvic inflammatory disease and pyelonephritis.
    2. A 79 year old female with history of cardiovascular disease, COPD, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.

    1. Pyridostigmine increases the concentration of synaptic cleft acetylcholine without affecting the succinylcholine activated receptor.
    2. Succinylcholine binds to a different part of the acetylcholine receptor and so it is not affected by pyridostigmine.
    3. Pyridostigmine is very specific and only affects the acetylcholinesterase enzymes in some neurons, but not all neurons.
    4. Pyridostigmine decreases the concentration of synaptic cleft acetylcholine without affecting the succinylcholine activated receptor.
    5. Pyridostigmine is not specific and affects the postsynaptic neurons.
    1. Rocuronium
    2. Succinylcholine
    3. Tubocurarine
    4. Pancuronium
    5. Pyridostigmine
