BACKGROUND: Neuromuscular blocking agents are commonly used during general anaesthesia but can lead to postoperative residual neuromuscular blockade and associated morbidity. With appropriate objective neuromuscular monitoring (objNMM) residual blockade can be avoided. In this survey, we investigated the use of objNMM in Denmark.

METHODS: We conducted an anonymous Internet-based survey distributed through e-mails to Danish public anaesthesia departments. The survey consisted of 15-17 short questions regarding the use of objNMM.

RESULTS: A total of 653 (27%) anaesthetists from 90% of the hospitals answered the questionnaire. ObjNMM was always used by 58% of the anaesthetists and 86% used objNMM at least 75% of the times. Despite the frequent use, 75% of the anaesthetists experienced difficulties with objNMM in at least 25% of the cases. The likelihood of using objNMM was higher among nurse anaesthetists vs. anaesthesiologists (odds ratio (OR) 2.24 [95% confidence interval (CI): 1.62-3.08]), if the department had an employee with special interest in objNMM (OR 1.66 [95% CI: 1.12-2.47]), if the anaesthetist had < 5 years of experience (OR 1.88 [95% CI: 1.29-2.73]), or if experiencing difficulties with objNMM < 25% of the cases (OR 1.60 [95% CI: 1.00-2.57]).

CONCLUSION: In this survey, Danish anaesthetists frequently, in an international perspective, use objNMM, but the use is often associated with technical difficulties.
