BACKGROUND A rigorous study of the dose-response relation of rapacuronium has, to our knowledge, yet to be performed. In addition, there is little information available regarding the onset or offset profile of rapacuronium when administered in subparalyzing doses. These issues necessitate further study. METHODS Forty-seven adult patients, American Society Anesthesiologists physical status I or II, were studied. Tracheal intubation was accomplished without muscle relaxants. Anesthesia was… CONTINUE READING
