Tracheal intubation during routine and rapid-sequence intubation is facilitated by rocuronium, which is a nondepolarizing aminosteroid neuromuscular block (NMB) agent, higher doses of which (1.2 mg/kg) typically produces a complete neuromuscular blockade in less than 2 minutes that is long acting. Recovery from NMB and restoration of full control of pharyngeal and laryngeal muscles are important in airway maintenance and protection in surgical patients.
