Endotracheal intubation is commonly facilitated by the administration of muscle relaxants following intravenous induction agent. Nondepolarising muscle relaxants have limitations such as prolonged neuromuscular blockade or the inability to reverse the paralysis quickly if tracheal intubation is not possible. Propofol suppresses airway reflexesbetter than any other agent, abducts and immobilizes the vocal cords enabling laryngoscopy

Abstract


Endotracheal intubation is commonly facilitated by the administration of muscle relaxants following intravenous induction agent. Nondepolarising muscle relaxants have limitations such as prolonged neuromuscular blockade or the inability to reverse the paralysis quickly if tracheal intubation is not possible. Propofol suppresses airway reflexesbetter than any other agent, abducts and immobilizes the vocal cords enabling laryngoscopy
