KEY PUBLICATION

Early Enteral Nutrition in Patients Undergoing Sustained Neuromuscular Blockade: A Propensity-Matched Analysis Using a Nationwide Inpatient Database

Why is this paper important? Due to the severity of illness of patients managed with sustained neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) and the assumption of many clinicians that NMBA are associated with gastric dysfunction, it is common practice for many to delay enteral nutrition in patients receiving sustained NMBAs. Read the review.

Article Reviewer:
