The onset and duration of action, and hemodynamic effects of rocuronium bromide 0.6 or 0.9 mg kg-1 were studied in 4 groups of 10 patients each during anesthesia with nitrous oxide in oxygen and fentanyl or halothane. Neuromuscular block was monitored using mechanomyography and train-of-four (TOF) stimulation. The mean time to onset of complete neuromuscular block was 55 s with the 0.6 mg kg-1 dose during both anesthetic techniques. The times to recovery of T1 (first response in the TOF… Expand
The effect of desflurane on rocuronium onset, clinical duration and maintenance requirements.
TLDR
Volatile anesthetics potentiate the effects of non-depolarizing agents and significantly delays the onset of neuromuscular block, potentiates rocuronium during maintenance infusion, but does not affect clinical duration or recovery. Expand
COMPARISON OF HEMODYNAMIC AND NEUROMUSCULAR PROPERTIES OF ROCURONIUM VERSUS VECURONIUM IN ANESTHESIA
TLDR
The onset time of rocuronium bromide, the “near-ideal” muscle relaxant, was significantly shorter and the duration of action of top-up doses was similar in both groups, and there was no significant difference in any of the hemodynamic variables between the two groups. Expand
Effects of 2 mg.kg⁻¹ of intravenous lidocaine on the latency of two different doses of rocuronium and on the hemodynamic response to orotracheal intubation.
TLDR
Intravenous lidocaine before anesthetic induction was capable of attenuating the hemodynamic response associated to OI maneuvers, but it did not reduce the latency of the neuromuscular blockade produced by two different doses of rocuronium. Expand
A Comparitive Study between Vecuronium and Rocuronium for Intubating Condition and Hemodynamic Changes
TLDR
Rocuronium is 3-6 times less potent than vecuronium as a neuromuscular blocker but is slightly more potent in blocking theresponses to either vagal or preganglionic sympathetic stimulation. Expand
Newer Neuromuscular Blocking Agents
TLDR
It seems worthwhile to consider only doses of rapacuronium ≤1.5 mg/kg to facilitate rapid tracheal intubation, and to use succinylcholine or rocuronium rather than rapacurium in a rapid-sequence setting, as the 1R -cis, 1 ‘R -Cis isomer of atracurium besilate (atracuria) is approximately 4 times more potent than atracURium.

COMPARATIVE EFFECTIVENESS OF ROCURONIUM VERSUS VECURONIUM ON ONSET TIME FOR INTUBATION, INTUBATION CONDITIONS AND DURATION OF ACTION: A RANDOMIZED, CONTROLLED STUDY ON PATIENTS UNDERGOING GENERAL ANESTHESIA.
TLDR
Considering proven superiority for desired clinical outcomes, rocuronium could be a considerable option for neuromuscular blockade. Expand
Rocuronium continuous infusion versus intermittent bolus for maintaining suitable muscle relaxation and recovery status without using a peripheral nerve stimulator during anesthesia
TLDR
Rocuronium infusion offers a better and stable degree of relaxation compared with intermittent bolus dosing for intermediate duration of operation, which can be assessed using the clinical relaxation grading system. Expand
Comparison of Rocuronium and Vecuronium in Patients Undergoing Elective Ultrafast-Track Off-Pump Coronary Artery Bypass Surgery
TLDR
Rocuronium provides good-to-excellent intubating conditions and is devoid of any significant cardiovascular changes causing hemodynamic instability when compared with vecuronium in patients undergoing elective ultrafast-track off-pump CABG. Expand
Elderly coronary artery bypass graft patients with left ventricular dysfunction are hemodynamically stable after two different doses of rocuronium.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that bolus administration of rocuronium (2x to 3x ED95) in combination with high-dose fentanyl provides sufficient cardiovascular stability among elderly CABG patients with left ventricular dysfunction. Expand
The management of acute severe asthma.
TLDR
Inhaled corticosteroids, leukotriene modifying drugs, and noninvasive positive pressure ventilation should be considered in patients with severe disease and in those who have responded poorly to standard therapy. Expand
