  1. Thank you for all that you do in producing this high quality podcast for us! I recently re-listened to the oral board prep episode 72 and found it to be extremely helpful. It would be wonderful to hear more oral board episodes.
    Just wanted to clarify ED95 according to open anesthesia “potency of a NMBD is best described as the effective dose – “The dose of a neuromuscular blocking drug required to produce an effect (e.g., 50%, 90%, or 95% depression of twitch height, commonly expressed as ED50, ED90, and ED95, respectively“. Thus, the ED95 is the amount of NMBD required to reduce twitch height by 95%.”
