    Transcript

    00:00 So, let's wrap up this video series. Neuromuscular blockers prevent acetylcholine from activating nicotinic M receptors postsynaptically at the skeletal neuromuscular junction.

    00:15 Now, when nicotinic M receptors are blocked, the patient no longer has the control of the skeletal muscles which include the diaphragm. The patient is fully awake, aware of pain, yet completely paralyzed and requires respiratory support and sedation or pain medication when this is given. Thank you for watching today.
