Abstract

Cardiac output varies considerably during surgery and anesthesiaHemodynamic changes can influence to the pharmacokinetics associated with the onset of neuromuscular transmission. Although it has been generally accepted that cardiac output can modify the onset of neuromuscular blockade of non-depolarizing relaxants this possibility has not been investigated in clinical practice.The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether cardiac output indeed does affect the onset of neuromuscular blockade of vecuronium and pancuronium.
