Vecuronium and atracurium infusions during hypothermic cardiopulmonary bypass.

Abstract

Two similar groups of patients undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting received either atracurium or vecuronium infusions for neuromuscular blockade. Both groups demonstrated a marked reduction in neuromuscular blocking requirements during hypothermic bypass at 30 C. The ratio of the dose rates at 30 C to that at 37 C was significantly less with vecuronium (p less than 0.01).
