Neuromuscular-Blocking Agents (Nondepolarizing)

Name
Neuromuscular-Blocking Agents (Nondepolarizing)
Accession Number
DBCAT002684  (DBCAT000843, DBCAT003376)
Description

Drugs that interrupt transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction without causing depolarization of the motor end plate. They prevent acetylcholine from triggering muscle contraction and are used as muscle relaxants during electroshock treatments, in convulsive states, and as anesthesia adjuvants.

Drugs
DrugDrug Description
RapacuroniumA nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent used as an adjunct to general anesthesia to facilitate tracheal intubation, and to provide skeletal muscle relaxation during surgical procedures.
MivacuriumA short-acting non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent used to induce anesthesia during intubation and promote skeletal muscle relaxation during surgery or mechanical ventilation.
Atracurium besylateA non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocker used to facilitate endotracheal intubation and relax skeletal muscles during surgery.
Metocurine iodideFor use as an anesthesia adjunct to induce skeletal muscle relaxation and to reduce the intensity of muscle contractions in convulsive therapy.
Gallamine triethiodideA nondepolarizing nerve blocker used in addition to anesthesia to cause skeletal muscle relaxation.
RocuroniumA vecuronium analog used to facilitate tracheal intubation and to relax skeletal muscles during surgery.
DoxacuriumA nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent used as an adjunct to general anesthesia to facilitate tracheal intubation, and to provide skeletal muscle relaxation during surgical procedures.
TubocurarineTubocurarine is a non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent and the first identified curare alkaloid. Curare is one of the names used to describe plant-derived poisons used by indigenous South Americans to...
MetocurineMetocurine is a muscle relaxant.
PancuroniumA neuromuscular blocker used as an adjunct to general anesthesia to facilitate tracheal intubation and to provide skeletal muscle relaxation during surgery or mechanical ventilation.
PipecuroniumA nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent used to relax muscles during anesthesia and surgical procedures.
VecuroniumA nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent used to relax muscles or as an adjunct in general anesthesia during surgical procedures.
AtracuriumA neuromuscular blocker indicated to relax muscles during mechanical ventilation under general anesthesia or intubation.
GallamineNot Annotated
AlcuroniumA non-depolarizing skeletal muscle relaxant similar to tubocurarine. It is used as an anesthesia adjuvant.
CisatracuriumA skeletal muscle relaxant used to facilitate tracheal intubation, muscle relaxation in surgery, or mechanical ventilation.
