Incidence of major postoperative pulmonary complications is approximately 5% leading to increased mortality and associated health care cost.[1-3] Hence, the public health impact is tremendous in view of the more than 300 million surgical procedures worldwide.[4, 5]
It is an urgent objective of various health care provider, patients and their families to reduce the rate of pulmonary complications after surgery. Significant progress was achieved in the field of surgical technique, perioperative processes, and patient selection but residual neuromuscular blockade remains a modifiable risk-factor for postoperative pulmonary complications.[6]

Prof. Thomas Fuchs-Buder from the Department of Anaesthesia and Critical Care, University of Lorraine in Nancy, is going to allude on possible ways of decreasing the risk posed by residual neuromuscular blockade and is going to evaluate the evidence regarding patient outcome.
