Chandonium iodide, a synthetic non-depolarising neuromuscular blocking agent and pancuronium bromide were clinically compared as muscle relaxants in 62 patients undergoing elective surgery. Anaesthesia was induced by thiopentone sodium and maintained by oxygen and nitrous oxide. Assessment of efficacy of both the muscle relaxants was graded taking into consideration intubating condition and muscular relaxation during surgery. Tolerability was assessed by noting the changes in heart rate, blood pressure and biochemical estimations. Efficacy of chandonium iodide in the dose of 0.15 to 0.18 mg/kg was comparable to that of 0.08 to 0.1 mg/kg of pancuronium bromide. Both the drugs were well tolerated.
