  • Conditions for tracheal intubation at 90 seconds, time to onset of maximum block and duration of clinical relaxation after jive different doses of atracurium, which ranged from 0.4 to 1.0 mg/kg were studied in 200 adult patients who were anaesthetised with nitrous oxide, oxygen and halothane or fentanyl. The conditions for intubation improved significantly with increasing doses, and were acceptable in 55% patients with a 0.4 mg/kg dose and in about 90% of those who received the two higher doses… CONTINUE READING
