Cisatracurium is indicated for the use during surgical and other procedures and in intensive care in adults and children aged 1 month and over. It can be used as an adjunct to general anaesthesia or sedation in the intensive care unit to relax skeletal muscles and to facilitate endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation.
- Intermediate duration of neuromuscular block
- Less histamine release compared to atracurium
- Better haemodynamic profile
- Excellent partner for combination with propofol
