    ABSTRACT: Neuromuscular blocking agents are widely used in perioperative medicine to aid in endotracheal intubation, facilitate surgery, and in critical care/emergency medicine settings. Muscle relaxants have profound clinical uses in current surgical and intensive care and emergency medical therapy. This article reviews cyclodextrins, development of selective binding agents, clinical development, and future directions of sugammadex.

    ABSTRACT: Airway management in the emergency department is a critical skill that must be mastered by emergency physicians. When rapid-sequence induction with oral-tracheal intubation performed by way of direct laryngoscopy is difficult or impossible due to a variety of circumstances, an alternative method or device must be used for a rescue airway. Retrograde intubation requires little equipment and has few contraindications. This technique is easy to learn and has a high level of skill retention. Familiarity with this technique is a valuable addition to the airway-management armamentarium of emergency physicians caring for ill or injured patients. Variations of the technique have been described, and their use depends on the individual circumstances.
