1

vecuronium trade name

norcuron

2

norcuron generic

vecuronium

3

vecuronium drug class

non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocker

4

vecuronium MOA

cholinergic R-antagonist; competes with Ach at neuromuscular junction to prevent binding so neuromuscular transmission is inhibited

5

vecuronium onset

<1 min

6

vecuronium peak

3-5 min

7

vecuronium duration

25-40 min

8

vecuronium half life

30-80 min

9

vecuronium indications

temporary paralysis for RSI

10

vecuronium contraindications

hypersensitivity

11

vecuronium SE

wheezing, respiratory depression, apnea, aspiration, dysrhythmias, bradycardia, sinus arrest, HTN, hypotension, increased intraocular pressure, increased ICP

12

vecuronium adult dose

0.08-0.1mg/kg IV

13

vecuronium pedi dose

0.1mg/kg IV

14

vecuronium precautions

have rescue airway devices and resuscitative equipment standing by

15

vecuronium interactions

potentiated by lidocaine, procainamide, B-blockers, mag sulfate, and other neuromuscular blockers

16

succinylcholine trade

anectine

17

anectine generic

succinylcholine

18

succinylcholine drug class

depolarizing neuromuscular blocker

19

succinylcholine MOA

cholinergic R-agonist, causes initial wave of widespread depolarization and blocks Ach and secondary muscle stimulation

20

succinylcholine onset

30-60 sec IV, 2-3 min IM

21

succinylcholine peak

1-3 min

22

succinylcholine duration

2-3 min IV, 10-30 min IM

23

succinylcholine half-life

5-10 min

24

succinylcholine indications

temporary paralysis for RSI

25

succinylcholine contraindications

penetrating eye injuries, narrow angle glaucoma, hyperkalemia, Hx of malignant hyperthermia

26

succinylcholine SE

wheezing, respiratory depression, apnea, aspiration, dysrhythmias, bradycardia, sinus arrest, HTN, hypotension, increased intraocular pressure, increased ICP

27

succinylcholine adult dose

1-2 mg/kg IV

28

succinylcholine pedi dose

1 mg/kg

29

succinylcholine precautions

may cause Fx in children, dysrhythmias, CA; have rescue airways available

30

succinylcholine interactions

potentiated by lidocaine, procainamide, B-blockers, mag sulfate, and other neuromuscular blockers
