. Physical Structure. Like all muscle relaxants, atracurium has a quater-nary group; however, a benzylisoquinoline structure is responsible for its unique method of degradation. The drug is a mixture of 10 stereoisomers. Metabolism & Excretio Atracurium Besylate is an intermediate-duration, nondepolarizing, skeletal muscle relaxant for intravenous administration. Atracurium Besylate is designated as 2- (2-Carboxyethyl)-1,2, 3, 4-tetrahydro-6,7-dimethoxy-2-methyl-1-veratrylisoquinolinium benzenesulfonate, pentamethylene ester Atracurium is an isoquinoline nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocker that is metabolized mostly by Hofmann elimination, a nonenzymatic spontaneous degradation process that occurs at physiologic pH and temperature Non-depolarizing neuromuscular blockers (nNMBs) are administered as primary therapy in facilitating endotracheal intubations and adjuvant therapy in the perioperative maintenance of anesthesia and care of the critically ill patient. Primarily nNMBs (rocuronium, vecuronium, pancuronium, atracurium, cisatracurium, mivacurium) are used to facilitate airway management and decrease the risk of.
Drugs that interrupt transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction without causing depolarization of the motor end plate. They prevent acetylcholine from triggering muscle contraction and are used as muscle relaxants during electroshock treatments, in convulsive states, and as anesthesia adjuvants Atracurium is in the neuromuscular-blocker family of medications and is of the non-depolarizing type. It works by blocking the action of acetylcholine on skeletal muscles. Atracurium was approved for medical use in the United States in 1983. It is on the World Health Organization's List of Essential Medicines patient is on systemic steroids, or has hepatic or renal dysfunction, atracurium is the first line NMBA of choice. If, while being treated with atracurium, the patient experiences Depolarizing NMBAs: a form of neuromuscular blocker that first causes depolarization an The prototypical depolarizing blocking drug is succinylcholine (suxamethonium). It is the only such drug used clinically. It has a rapid onset (30 seconds) but very short duration of action (5-10 minutes) because of hydrolysis by various cholinesterases (such as butyrylcholinesterase in the blood) The key difference between depolarizing and nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers is that depolarizing neuromuscular blockers act as acetylcholine receptor agonists while nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockers act as competitive antagonists.. Neuromuscular blockers are commonly used for skeletal muscle relaxation. They are also called skeletal muscle relaxants
depolarizing agents, such as atracurium and vecuroni-um developed in the 1980s, presently provide a more rapid onset of action with a shorter duration than pre-viously available agents. The ideal target for future drug development is a newer generation of nondepo-larizing NMB agents with properties similar to those o Atracurium is a non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking drug of the benzylisoquinolinium class. It is a competitive antagonist of the alpha subunit of the postsynaptic nicotinic receptor at the neuromuscular junction. It competes with acetylcholine for binding sites They were divided into six groups of 20 according to the non-depolarizing pretreatment used: NaCl 0.9% (control), 0.05 mg.kg-1 d-tubocurarine, 0.01 mg.kg-1 vecuronium, 0.05 mg.kg-1 atracurium, 0.02 mg.kg-1 mivacurium and 0.06 mg.kg-1 rocuronium.

Depolarizing drugs are agonists at ACh receptors. Succinylcholine is the only depolarizing NMBD in clinical use. It is effectively two ACh molecules joined through the acetate methyl groups. The two quaternary ammonium radicals bind to the two α-subunits of one nicotinic receptor, and depolarization occurs Atracurium Besylate is a non-depolarizing skeletal muscle relevant. Non-depolarizing agents antagonize the neurotransmitter action of acetylcholine by binding competitively with cholinergic receptor sites on the motor end-plate. This antagonism ia inhibited. an
Laudanosine, a metabolite of atracurium and cis-atracurium, may accumulate and cause central nervous system stimulation with resultant seizures. Finally, in critically ill patients, long-term infusions of non-depolarizing NMBDs, particularly aminosteroids, can lead to profound weakness, termed critical illness polymyoneuropathy (CIP) Therefore, the study was designed to examine the sensitivity of the rat neuromuscular junc- tion to five nondepolarizing agents (d -tubocurarine, cisatracurium, atracurium, vecuronium, rocuronium) and to one depolarizing agent (succinylcholine), comparing responses in the newborn (9-12 days) and adult (27-33 days) junctions Cisatracurium is described as the nondepolarizing muscle relaxant of choice for medium-to-long-term surgery on hemodynamically unstable patients or those with kidney or liver disease, and for neuromuscular blockade in intensive care non-depolarizing relax- ant to prevent succinyl- choline fasciculations and myalgia Purpose: To determine which non-depolarizing relaxant among d-tubocurarine, vecuronium, atracurium, mivacurium and rocuronium prevented muscular fasciculations and myalgia following succinylcholine
non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent; similar to atracurium, but does not cause release of histamine, has largely replaced atracurium clinically Mivacurium Non-depolarizing skeletal muscle antagonist that has short duration; moderate histamine release The non-depolarizing muscle relaxants in com-mon clinical use are all eliminated to some degree by the kidney and it is usually suggested that it is for this reason that their use in patients with renal failure is associated with the risk of persistent curar-ization, or even of recurarization. As atracurium is Atracurium Besylate injection, Pfizer, 10 mg/mL, 10 mL multiple dose vial, 10 count, NDC 0040-1105-02; Non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents may be reversed with neostigmine or edrophonium. Depolarizing NMBAs (ie, succinylcholine) are not reversed by these agents and their toxicity may be worsened by concomitant administration.[5,6. Atracurium besylate is a neuromuscular-blocking drug or skeletal muscle relaxant in the category of non-depolarizing neuromuscular-blocking drugs, used adjunctively in anesthesia to facilitate endotracheal intubation and to provide skeletal muscle relaxation during surgery or mechanical ventilation. Atracurium is classified as an intermediate-duration non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent Atracurium. A racemic mixture of 10 stereoisomers and geometric isomers. Atracurium has an intermediate onset and duration of action. It causes release of histamine but has no direct cardiovascular effects. Metabolism is by Hofmann degradation and ester hydrolysis in the plasma, hence its duration of action is independent of renal and hepatic.

Written by ASHP Neuromuscular blockers are broken down into 2 main categories, which include depolarizing and non-depolarizing agents. A concise review of the content available in the downloadable reference tool is available below. The tool was designed to be a quick summary of key points regarding the most commonly used neuromuscular blockers and is not meant. Atracurium is a mixture of ten stereoisomers in unequal but constant proportions. Eventually it was possible to separate these isomers and one was found to have twice the potency of the other non-depolarizing drug. However they did have reservations. Intubating conditions were variable and it did not provide the con Abstract. Atracurium, a new non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, was studied in 70 patients anesthetized with fentanyl, thiopental, and nitrous oxide-oxygen. The dose found to produce 95% twitch inhibition (ED95) was 0.2 mg/ kg. The onset time from injection to maximum depression of twitch was 4.0 minutes at this dose; the duration to. Elephant specific information, if available, is in blue. Chemistry - A synthetic, non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent, atracurium, is a bisquaternary, non-choline diester structurally similar to metocurine and tubocurarine. It occurs as white to pale yellow powder. 50 mg is soluble in 1 ml of water, 200 mg is soluble in 1 ml of alcohol, and 35 mg is soluble in 1 ml of normal saline
The average ED95 (dose required to produce 95% suppression of the adductor pollicis muscle twitch response to ulnar nerve stimulation) of cisatracurium is 0.05 mg/kg (range: 0.048—0.053) in adults receiving opioid/nitrous oxide/oxygen anesthesia. The average ED95 for atracurium under similar conditions is 0.17 mg/kg Depolarizing NMBDs. Suxamethonium (succinylcholine) is the only depolarizing NMBD in clinical use. Structurally it is two ACh molecules joined together and it acts as an agonist at the nicotinic receptor. They are more liable to break down in the plasma and often cause release of histamine; examples include tubocurarine, atracurium. depolarizing myorelaxants, useful especially in emergency situations, in the patient with gastric plenitude or at high risk of intubation, and non -depolarizing myorelaxants such as atra - curium, cisatracurium and rocuronium. Succinylcholine has a short time of action and it is rapidly metabolized. Atracurium Can pretreat with 5% of the ED95 for a non-depolarizing NMBD 2-4 minutes prior, which will blunt the fasciculations (note that SCh will then need to be increased by 70%, or just give 1.5 mg/kg). Actions. SCh produces a phase I blockade i.e., a depolarizing blockade. Full recovery usually occurs within 10-15 minutes

Summary. Skeletal muscle relaxants are drugs that block the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) by binding to acetylcholine receptors located on it.This process leads to paralysis of all skeletal muscles, starting with the small muscles of the face and paralyzing the diaphragm last. Succinylcholine, the only depolarizing NMJ-blocking drug, binds to ACh receptors and causes a prolonged depolarization. ATRACURIUM (Tracrium, Glaxo Wellcome, Research Triangle Park, NC) is an intermediate-duration, non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent introduced into clinical anesthesia in the early 1980s. Atracurium has four chiral centers in its bis-benzylisoquinolinium structure; however, because of molecular symmetry, the 16 theoretical isomers are. Intermediate acting non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents were administered to patients undergoing 32 002 procedures in the following distribution: 66.2% for cisatracurium, 22.9% for vecuronium, and 11.6% for rocuronium The invention relates to the field of pharmaceutical chemistry, and practically provides cis-atracurium besilate for injection and a preparation method thereof. The method disclosed by the invention is stable and reliable and small in pollution to environment and the product impurity content is low

Atracurium and vecuronium are two new nondepolarizing skeletal muscle relaxants that were developed to overcome the deficiencies seen with currently available agents (tubocurarine, metocurine, pancuronium, and gallamine). Both compounds have unique metabolic profiles, separating them from other nondepolarizing agents Laudanosine is the major product of the metabolic degradation of atracurium and cisatracurium [8,9]. It may be present in the commercially available formulations of these neuromuscular-blocking drugs because of its increase in concentration during storage, even if the product is stored at low temperatures  Atracurium is an intermediate onset intermediate duration non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent. It was developed in 1974 and was officially FDA approved on November 23, 1983.

Succinylcholine Atracurium Pancuronium 1. Background Succinylcholine is used mainly used to facilitate tracheal intubation in emergency procedures but also in elective surgery, however because of multiple side effects including fasciculations muscle damage and late postoperative myalgia, a small dose of non-depolarising muscle relaxants (NDMR) may be used to decrease these side effects (1-6) A neuromuscular non-depolarizing agent is a form of neuromuscular blocker that does not depolarize the motor end plate. The quaternary ammonium muscle relaxants belong to this class. Quaternary ammonium muscle relaxants are quaternary ammonium salts used as drugs for muscle relaxation, most commonly in anesthesia Depolarizing Muscle Relaxant (DMR) exhibit no fade on the Train of Four (TOF) test. Non-Depolarizers (NDMR): Curare, Pancuronium, Vecuronium, Rocuronium, Atracurium, Cis-Atracurium, Mivacurium, etc Atracurium: duration of action unaffected by renal failure. Hofmann elimination and ester hydrolysis account for 50% of total clearance. Elimination half-life of neurotoxic metabolite laudanosine increases in renal failure, although this may not be clinically relevant. cis-Atracurium: duration of action is not prolonged
