Recent data shows that a neuromuscular block (NMB) induced by administration of high doses of rocuronium improves surgical conditions in certain procedures. However, there are limited data on the effe...
WHAT THIS ARTICLE TELLS US THAT IS NEW: BACKGROUND:: Complete recovery from rocuronium-induced muscle paralysis with sugammadex is reported to be delayed in elderly patients. The authors tested a hypo...
Recent literature has focused on the association of psoriasis with lower than normal or highly deficient vitamin D blood levels.To investigate the controversial association between psoriasis and vitam...
Minimising rocuronium administration during paediatric surgery helps to reduce the incidence of residual muscular blockade.
We investigated the continuous infusion rates of rocuronium necessary to obtain the surgical muscle relaxation before, during, and after the Pringle maneuver on patients who underwent hepatectomy.
Rocuronium is a non-depolarising neuromuscular blocking agent. The compound has a rapid onset and an intermediate duration of action. The rapid onset is of importance in patients at risk ...
This study aims to evaluate effects of magnesium sulfate on onset and duration of low dose rocuronium, intubation condition and surgical condition in patients undergoing laparoscopic chole...
It is a prospective, comparative, randomized, double-blind clinical trial whose hypothesis is that pre-treatment with magnesium sulfate, due to its action at the neuromuscular junction,pot...
This is an adaptative study where each participant's rocuronium dose will depend on the previous patient's response, being higher if it was not enough and lower if it was more than enough.
To explore and compare the effects of propoful, sevoflurane, and a combination of both on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of rocuronium. To discover and confirm sex differences ...
Monoquaternary homolog of PANCURONIUM. A non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent with shorter duration of action than pancuronium. Its lack of significant cardiovascular effects and lack of dependence on good kidney function for elimination as well as its short duration of action and easy reversibility provide advantages over, or alternatives to, other established neuromuscular blocking agents.
A local anesthetic of the ester type that has a rapid onset of action and a longer duration of action than procaine hydrochloride. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1017)
