This study demonstrates that intubation time is quicker when a non-depolarising neuromuscular blocking drug is preceded by a small dose of the same or another sub-paralysing dose of non-depolarising muscle relaxant (Mehta et al).
Several studies have reported similar results, and proved the effect of MgS[O.sub.4] in prolongation of clinical duration of different neuromuscular blocking drugs. [28]
The primary objectives of the study are to assess and compare the incidence and degree of post-operative residual neuromuscular blockade in patients at the time of tracheal extubation with the use of intermediate acting Neuromuscular Blocking Drugs (NMBD)-Atracurium and Vecuronium.
We identified 82 patients in whom alterations to the letter provided better information with respect to safety and retested eight patients, establishing new safe neuromuscular blocking drugs in six and new diagnoses (latex and chlorhexidine) in two.
Neuromuscular blocking drugs are utilised during general anaesthesia to facilitate instrumentation of the airway and mechanical ventilation and to improve operating conditions.
Neuromuscular blocking drugs are commonly used to improve the quality of conditions for tracheal intubation.

Rocuronium bromide and vecuronium bromide are neuromuscular blocking drugs that cause temporary paralysis by interfering with the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscle and are used to paralyze the vocal cords when patients require an artificial airway or breathing tube for surgery, a process called tracheal intubation.
