Abstract

Respiratory muscles are more resistant to the action of muscle relaxants (MRs) such as pancuronium (PAN) than peripheral muscles, and this concept has been called respiratory sparing effect (RSE). Regarding to vecuronium (VEC) and rocuronium (ROC), however, the RSE has not been clearly elucidated yet. The aim of the present study was to compare the magnitude of RSE in rats on three steroidal MRs: PAN, VEC and ROC.
