Description

This session explores the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic properties of the aminosteroid neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs). It explores: the relationship between the chemical structure of these agents, their potency and their route of elimination; the relationship between potency and rate of onset; the use of neuromuscular monitoring by motor nerve stimulation to define the pharmacodynamic properties of these agents; and properties common to this group of drugs.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• List the neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) available in the UK that are aminosteroid compounds
• Discuss the relationship between the chemical structure of these compounds and their distribution and elimination
• Explain the relationship between potency and onset time
• Describe how pancuronium, vecuronium and rocuronium are eliminated
• Specify the intubating dose, onset time and clinical duration of action of pancuronium, vecuronium and rocuronium
