Abstract
Purpose We report a case of awake paralysis due to residual neuromuscular blockade (NMB) in the intensive care unit (ICU) in a patient following fast-track cardiac surgery. As a result of this case, we performed a prospective quality assurance audit to investigate the incidence of residual paralysis in the ICU in a similar population of cardiac surgery patients.
