dc.description.abstract Thirty five unpremedicated Nigerians who required endotracheal intubation and skeletal muscle relaxation during anaesthesia, received atracurium besylate in a dose of 0.6mg/kg body weight. Endotracheal intubation was possible in all the patients within 2 min after intravenous injection of the drug. The average duration of neuromuscular blockade produced by the initial bolus dose of the drug was 32.5 min. Spontaneous and clinically satisfactory recovery from the neuromuscular blockade occurred soon after the end of the surgical operation in all the patients. thus obviating the need for the use of neostigmine. A tracurium appeared to retain much of its potency despite being stored under less than ideal conditions. The drug is ideal in situations such as ours where the supply of neostigmine could be sporadic and unpredictable. and where patients often present at the extreme stage of their illness, for anesthesia and surgery. en_US
