Sugammadex Fresenius Kabi is a medicine used to reverse the effect of the muscle relaxants rocuronium and vecuronium. Muscle relaxants are medicines used during some types of operation to make the muscles relax, including the muscles that help the patient to breathe. Muscle relaxants make it easier for the surgeon to do the operation. Sugammadex Fresenius Kabi is used to speed up the recovery from the muscle relaxant, usually at the end of the operation.
Sugammadex Fresenius Kabi can be used in adults who have received rocuronium and vecuronium, and in children aged 2 years or older who have received rocuronium.
Sugammadex Fresenius Kabi contains the active substance sugammadex and is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Sugammadex Fresenius Kabi contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Bridion.
