Cisatracurium is used to relax the muscles. It works by blocking the signals between your nerves and your muscles.
Cisatracurium is given before general anesthesia in preparing you for surgery. Cisatracurium helps keep your body still during surgery. It also relaxes your throat so a breathing tube can be more easily inserted before the surgery.
Surgical patients: None with incidence >1% in clinical trials.
Intensive care patients: Prolonged recovery from neuromuscular blockade.
