Importancia de los relajantes musculares para el abordaje de la tráquea.

Idoris Cordero Escobar

Texto completo:



El uso de los relajantes musculares en la práctica anestesiológica es uno de los avances más importantes en nuestra especialidad. Este hecho, aportó una mejor conducción de la anestesia general y una disminución significativa del tiempo quirúrgico, lo que constituyó un considerable beneficio para los pacientes
