Chemical Neuromuscular Blocking Agents

Name Neuromuscular Blocking Agents
Equivalent Terms Agents, Neuromuscular Blocking | Blockers, Neuromuscular | Blocking Agents, Neuromuscular | Neuromuscular Blockers
Definition Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.
