Abstract: We previously showed that rocuronium combined with 24 h of controlled mechanical ventilation (CMV) leads to an additional negative effect on diaphragm function in rats. Based on clinical observations we examined whether the combination of rocuronium with corticosteroids during CMV would result into a further deterioration of diaphragm function.
