Contract awarded for Rocuronium
bromide 50 mg / 5 ml solution road, iv req 641
The US state of Virginia confirmed in response to a freedom of information request in July that it held stocks of Rocuronium
Bromide, a Mylan-made drug that can be used to kill people.
Future studies may use a topically applied curariform agent in attempts to induce pupil dilation in American flamingos; vecuronium (32) and rocuronium
(33-35) are agents that have proven effective at achieving mydriasis in a variety of avian species.
succinylcholine, suxamethonium, vecuronium bromide, pancuronium bromide, and/or rocuronium
Merck is looking to get sugammadex approved for the reversal of neuromuscular blockade (NMB) induced by rocuronium
For both groups general anaesthesia was standardised, using sevoftuorane in oxygen and air, fentanyl titrated to effect and rocuronium
All patients were administered a standardized intravenous anesthesia protocol: midazolam 1 to 2 mg for preinduction; lidocaine 50 mg, propofol 2 mg/kg, and fentanyl 50 to 100 [micro]g for induction; rocuronium
35 mg and either desflurane or sevoflurane 1 to 1.
A randomized controlled comparative study of rocuronium
bromide versus succinylcholine for endotracheal intubation was undertaken to find out the efficacy of rocuronium
bromide as a suitable substitute to succinlycholine.
Common agents include pancuronium, rocuronium
and vencuronium all have an onset of a few minutes and can last up to a couple hours.
Bridion works specifically on the commonly used muscle relaxants, Rocuronium
and Vecuronium, used to keep patients extremely still during major surgery such as hip operations.
Its ability to reverse the effects of NMBAs was discovered during a 'eureka' moment when a team of Scottish-based Schering-Plough researchers were investigating how to dissolve rocuronium
in the laboratory.
A muscle relaxant, rocuronium
, was administered, and direct laryngoscopy and intubation of the trachea were attempted, but these were unsuccessful.
