HOW DO SELECTIVE RELAXANT BINDING AGENTS WORK?

Selective relaxant binding agents are drugs used to reverse the effects of anesthesia that blocks the nerve and muscle function.

During anesthesia, the nerve and muscle functions are inhibited by giving drugs like rocuronium and vecuronium. Selective relaxant drugs bind to rocuronium and vecuronium to form a complex structure that cannot bind to the receptors at the nerve and muscle junction. As a result, the blocking effect of the drugs wears off.
