Possible Interaction: Magnesium and Vecuronium



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

We conclude that magnesium pretreatment increased the neuromuscular potency of vecuronium , in addition to modifying the time course of its neuromuscular block.
British journal of anaesthesia  •  1995  |  View Paper
Magnesium significantly shortened the onset time of vecuronium (154.0 +/- 25.9, 162.0 +/- 22.4 sec. in Mg1 & Mg2 Gs respectively vs. 227.4 +/- 10.9 sec. in control), prolonged its clinical duration (44.7 +/- 3.2, 46.4 +/- 5.1 min.
Mean arterial blood pressure and heart rate were lower in magnesium groups with lowest value in Mg2 G. It is concluded that magnesium 50 mg kg(-1) bolus followed by 8 mg kg(-1) h(-1) leads to significant reductions in intraoperative propofol and vecuronium and postoperative fentanyl consumption.

Although serum magnesium value was not beyond therapeutic levels (3.3 mEq.l-1), the neuromuscular blocking effects with vecronium were strengthened.

The duration of action of vecuronium was significantly longer in the magnesium group than in the control group.
