Indications for Drugs ::

General anaesthesia, Skeletal muscle relaxation

Drug Dose ::

Intravenous Muscle relaxant in general anaesthesia, Facilitate endotracheal intubation Adult: Initially, 80-100 mcg/kg given as inj (reduced doses at 30-50 mcg/kg have been suggested after use of suxamethonium; not to exceed 100 mcg/kg in caesarean and neonatal surgery). Maintenance in prolonged procedure: 20-30 mcg/kg, adjust according to response. Alternatively, as continuous infusion: 0.8-1.4 mcg/kg/minute after initial IV dose of 40-100 mcg/kg. Child: < 5 mth: Initially, 10-20 mcg/kg, increased if necessary according to response. > 5 mth: initially, 80-100 mcg/kg given as inj; alternatively, 30-50 mcg/kg after clinical recovery from neuromuscular blockade of suxamethonium. Max in caesarean and neonatal surgery: 100 mcg/kg. Maintenance in prolonged procedure: 10-15 mcg/kg. Elderly: Dose reduction may be needed. Hepatic impairment: Dose adjustments may be needed.

Contraindication ::

Hypersensitivity to vecuronium or bromide.

Drug Precautions ::

Pregnancy, lactation, elderly. Renal and hepatic impairment. Increase in onset time in conditions associated with prolonged circulation time (e.g. CV disease, oedema). Neuromuscular disease e.g. myasthenia gravis, Eaton-Lambert syndrome or after poliomyelitis. Hypothermia, burns patients. Decrease dose in obese patients, taking into account lean body-mass. Correct severe electrolyte disturbances, altered blood pH, dehydration where possible before vecuronium admin. Do not use potentially dangerous machinery or drive a car within 24 hr after full recovery from the neuromuscular blocking action of vecuronium. Do not admin vecuronium unless facilities for intubation, artificial respiration, oxygen therapy and agents for neuromuscular reversal are immediately available.

Drug Mode of Action ::  

Vecuronium bromide inhibits depolarisation by blocking acetylcholine from binding to receptors on motor endplate.

Drug Interactions ::

Increases neuromuscular blockade with volatile anaesthetic agents (halothane, ether, enflurane, isoflurane, methoxyflurane, propofol and cyclopropane), fentanyl, other non-depolarising muscle relaxants, prior admin of succinylcholine, tetracyclines, polymyxins, diuretics, thiamine, MAOIs, bacitracin, colistin, sodium colistimethate, acylaminopenicillins, aminoglycoside antibiotics, high dose metronidazole, protamine, beta-adrenergic blocking agents, calcium antagonists e.g. verapamil, and Mg. Decreased neuromuscular blockade with anticholinesterases, prior chronic admin of corticosteroids, phenytoin, carbamazepine, noradrenaline, azathioprine, theophylline, calcium chloride.
