Alternatively, maintenance can also be achieved by continuous infusion at 5-10 mcg/kg/minute. Initial dose should be given over 60 seconds in patients with CV disease. Dose should be calculated based on ideal body-weight in obese patients. Child: >2 mth: Initially, 400-500 mcg/kg as inj. Maintenance dose: 80-100 mcg/kg; first maintenance dose may be given 20-45 min after the initial dose, subsequently, may be repeated every 15-25 min. For children 1 mth-2 yr: 300-400 mcg/kg may be used as initial dose in those who are under halothane anaesthesia. Maintenance doses may be admin more frequently in infant and children than adults. Special Populations: For patients with significant CV disease or any history (e.g. severe anaphylactoid reactions or asthma) suggesting a greater risk of histamine release, an initial dose of 0.3-0.4 mg/kg should be given slowly or in divided doses over 1 min. For adults receiving atracurium following the use of succinylcholine for intubation under balanced anesthesia, an initial dose of 0.3-0.4 mg/kg is recommended.
