I'm a new grad in the ED with a silly question. I had a patient today (one of the first ones I've had semi- independently that was sick enough to get intubated, i/o access, etc) that was given Vecuronium for paralysis. Is this the drug that is nicknamed "rock?" I've heard that in conversations.
I wasn't the one who gave it, so no worries! I was ventilating.
I try not to give drugs I haven't had a moment to look up....
So, aside from the nickname, anything else you can tell me that I should know in the future about this drug?
Thanks a bunch!
