Background: succinylcholine is routine muscle relaxant for paediatric patients. Rocuronium is newer non depolarising muscle relaxant.Aims & objectives: To assess time, course and duration of both relaxants as well as intubation conditions.Material & Methods:The randomized blind study was carried out to evaluate the intubating condition with two different muscle relaxants in 50 ASA grade I and II pediatric patients with age group of 2-6 years,having duration of surgery less than 30 minutes.Patients were anaesthetized with injection rocuronium 0.9 mg/kg i.v. or with injection succinylcholine 1.5 mg/kg after injection fentanyl 1ug/kg and injection thiopentone 5 mg/kg. Neuromuscular blockade was assessed by twitch response of adductor pollicis longus after supra- maximal stimulation of ulnar nerve. Tracheal intubating conditions were assessed by blinded anaesthetist after 60 seconds and then after every 15 seconds, till patient got intubated. Along with this, time of onset and percentage of neuromuscular blockage was also assessed.Observations and results:Time course and duration of action were more in case of rocuronium group as compared to succinylcholine group.Intubating conditions are comparable in both groups
