Various neuromuscular blocking agents are used in the routine anesthesia practice. Cisatracurium besilate is a nondepolarising neuromuscular blocking agent which has an intermediate duration of action. Due to the high molecular weight and high polarity the volume of distribution is low. Cisatracurium besilate undergoes Hofmann elimination which makes this as a drug of choice in organ failure patients.

Keywords: Cisatracurium, Neuromuscular blocking agent, Nondepolarizing.
