We studied the cardiovascular and neuromuscular effects of Norcuron (a new nondepo larizing muscle relaxant) in ASA Claas I patients under halothane and nitrous oxide ane-sthegia. The onset time of Norcuron was 1.06+/-0.27 win, and Clinical duration of action time was 41.49+/-5.53 min and recovery index was 16.38+/-2.30 min and total duration of action time was 67.04 +/-14.42 min.. after volus injection Norcuron 0.1 mg/kg. Norcuron did not change mean arterial presaure, heart rate and histamine secretions and had not arrythmogemic effect on heart rhythm. We conclude that vecuronium bromide (Norcuron) produces a excellent neuromuscular blockade of short duration with little cardiovascular changes and histamine releaae.
