The result is that the patient is awake but this is difficult to establish because of complete curarisation. [14,15]
This situation is known as post-operative residual curarisation (PORC).
In ACURASYS (ARDS et Curarisation Systematique) trial, the use of neuromuscular blocking agents to suppress spontaneous breathing was found to be beneficial on clinical important outcomes such as ICU-free days and mortality (hazard ratio at 90 days: 0.68; 95% CI: 0.48-0.98).
Thereafter in 1970 and 1971 there were a series of articles published in the British Journal of Anaesthesia by Ali, Utting and Gray that described the use of TOF monitoring in the assessment of the degree of curarisation in humans (17).
Further studies demonstrated that postoperative residual curarisation (PORC), defined as a train-of-four ratio (TOFR) <0.9, is one of the main causes of postoperative pulmonary complications (POPCs), hypoxia, upper airway obstruction and delayed recovery, which increase the risk of tracheal re-intubation, coma and long-term mortality (3-13).
They also used curare to paralyse the animals and physostigmine to reverse the curarisation (3).
