Indications for BLOXIVERZ:
To reverse effects of non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents (NMBAs) post-op.
Adults and Children:
See full labeling. Peripheral nerve stimulator and monitoring for twitch responses should be used to determine time of Bloxiverz initiation and the need for additional doses. Individualize. Give by IV inj slowly over a period of at least 1 min. Administer an anticholinergic (eg, atropine sulfate, glycopyrrolate) prior to (if bradycardia present) or concomitantly with Bloxiverz. Reversal of NMBAs with shorter half-lives (eg, rocuronium), or when first twitch response is substantially >10% of baseline or when a second twitch is present: 0.03mg/kg. Reversal of NMBAs with longer half-lives (eg, vecuronium, pancuronium) or when first twitch response is not substantially >10% of baseline or if rapid recovery required: 0.07mg/kg. Max total dose: 0.07mg/kg or up to a total of 5mg, whichever is less.
