  1. ETOMIDATE
    Class:
    General anesthetic
  2. ETOMIDATE
    Mechanism of Action
    Decreases activity of the reticular formation in the brainwith minimal cardiac and respiratory effects
  3. ETOMIDATE
    Indications
    Used for induction of general anesthesia (intubation in the EMSsetting)
  4. ETOMIDATE
    Contraindications
    None
  5. ETOMIDATE
    Dosage
    0.3 mg/kg IV
  6. ROCURONIUM (ZEMURON)
    Class:
    Nondepolarizing neuromuscular blocker
  7. ROCURONIUM (ZEMURON)
    Mechanism of Action
    Competitively binds to cholinergic receptors. Reversiblein the presence of acetylcholinesterase inhibitors, suchas neostigmine
  8. ROCURONIUM (ZEMURON)
    Indications
    Rapid Sequence Intubation, maintenance of desired paralysis
  9. ROCURONIUM (ZEMURON)
    Contraindications
    None
  10. ROCURONIUM (ZEMURON)
    Dosage
    RSI: 0.6 mg/kg
  11. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Class:
    Depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent
  12. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Mechanism of Action
    Combines with cholinergic receptors in motor nerves tocause depolarization. Neuromuscular transmission isinhibited, causing temporary skeletal paralysis, untilsuccinylcholine is metabolized and cells becomerepolarized
  13. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Indications
    To achieve temporary paralysis when endotracheal intubation isindicated and muscle tone impedes successful intubation
  14. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Contraindications
    Hyperkalemia, history of malignant hyperthermia,penetrating eye injury, neuromuscular disorder (MS),paralysis > 1 day, crush injury > 3 days, severe burns > 3days
  15. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Dosage
    Adult: 1-2 mg (1.5 generally)/kg IV (The preferred route is IV; IM canbe used if protocols allow.)Pediatric: 2 mg/kg
  16. SUCCINYLCHOLINE
    Side Effects
    Arrhythmias, bradycardia, increased intraocular pressure,Increased intracranial pressure, hyperkalemia
  17. VECURONIUM (NORCURON)
    Class:
    Non-depolarizing paralytic agent
  18. VECURONIUM (NORCURON)
    Mechanism of Action
    Competes with acetylcholine for cholinergic receptorsites on the post junctional membrane, resulting inparalysis
  19. VECURONIUM (NORCURON)
    Indications
    Paralysis to obtain endotracheal intubation where a longer durationof action is desired than that provided by succinylcholine
  20. VECURONIUM (NORCURON)
    Contraindications
    None
  21. VECURONIUM (NORCURON)
    Dosage
    0.1mg/kg IV push
