Abstract

The rapid onset and offset of rapacuronium can be explained from its pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic characteristics. A unique property of rapacuronium is its high value for ke0, indicating a rapid access to the receptor site. The reason for this high ke0 may be related to the low intrinsic potency of rapacuronium, but this is not yet fully clarified.
