Introduction to Vibro 4mg Injection

Vibro 4mg injection contains the active substance vecuronium bromide, which belongs to a class of medicines called skeletal muscle relaxants. It is administered as an adjuvant to general anesthesia to prepare you for surgery. This medication assists in maintaining your body still by relaxing your skeletal muscles during the surgical procedure. It also facilitates the relaxation of the throat, making it easier to insert a breathing tube (endotracheal intubation) before surgery. This medication is used as a muscle relaxant in almost all age groups, including adults, adolescents (2-17 years), newborns, and infants (0 days – 23 months). It is also employed to aid in emergency airway management (mechanical ventilation) for patients in intensive care.

Before receiving vibro 4mg  injection, it is crucial to discuss the following with your healthcare team: any prior allergies to vecuronium bromide or other muscle relaxants, reduced renal function or renal disease, heart or circulatory conditions, fluid accumulation, liver or gallbladder issues, edema (swelling of ankles), diseases affecting nerves and muscles such as polio, myasthenia gravis or Eaton-Lambert syndrome. Transparent communication about your medical history is essential for a safe and effective treatment plan.

Therapeutic Effects of Vibro 4mg Injection

When vibro 4mg is present, it blocks this messenger, preventing the muscles from receiving the signal to contract and keeps them relaxed.
