Objectives: To compare the clinical intubation conditions through the sketch of Domoaol between succinilcoline (suxamethonium) and rocuronium bromide at 60 seconds after their appliance, and to evaluate the side effects of such mentioned drugs. Material and methods: This was a prospective, transversal, comparative, and open study performed on 60 patients subjected to programmed surgeries, without any kind of difficulty for intubation. The patients were from both sexes, with an age ranging from 18 to 65 years old, ASA E I y II, and they were pre-medicated with midazolam (0.05 mg/kg IV); they had a noninvasive monitoring, and the induction with fentanyl (3 µg/kg), propofol (2 mg/kg IV) was randomly divided in the A group (Succinilcoline 1 mg/kg) an B group (Rocuronium 0.06 mg/kg). The results were recorded on the data collection sheet. Results: The intubation conditions for both groups were considered between good and excellent. Adverse effects were found in the 90% of the patients in A group, while in B group they were not present. Conclusion: Rocuronium bromide is one of the nondepolarizing neuromuscular relaxants that presents a quicker starting point of action and seems to be a valid option when it is necessary to obtain the upper respiratory tract very quickly.

    It is often argued that neuromuscular monitoring is unnecessary when only one dose of an intermediate-acting neuromuscular blocking agent is given.

    Purpose: In liver transplantation patients under intravenous anesthesia, the vecuronium dose is known to be reduced, especially during the anhepatic phase. Volatile anesthetics potentiate a muscle relaxation effect of neuromuscular blocking agents, so the vecuronium dose is supposed to further...

    Background and Aims: Priming principle refers to administration of a small dose of non-depolarising blocker, which when followed by a large intubating dose produces a relatively rapid and profound blockade to ensure suitable conditions for endotracheal intubation. We aimed to compare the effects...

    Background: Rocuronium produces faster neuromuscular blockade compared with other neuromuscular blocking drugs. It produces comparable intubating conditions to that of succinylcholine, but does not have the short intubation time of the latter. Hence, it may not be preferable for rapid sequence...

    Background: Rapid sequence induction (RSI) is indicated in various situations. Succinylcholine has been the muscle relaxant of choice for RSI, and rocuronium has become an alternative medicine for patients who cannot be administered succinylcholine for various reasons. Although rocuronium has...
