Neuromuscular Blocking Agents

In some types of surgery (for example, abdominal surgery) it is highly advantageous to have the patient's skeletal muscles (for example, abdominal surgery) in a state of relaxation. Most general anesthetic agents do not produce a sufficient level of skeletal muscle relaxation. Therefore, neuromuscular blocking agents are administered to achieve the desired muscle relaxation effects. Two commonly used neuromuscular blocking agents:

a. Vecuronium (Norcuron®).

b. Succinylcholine (Anectine®).
