Abstract: To evaluate the influence of two stimulation frequencies on the installation of neuromuscular blockade produced by pancuronium and rocuronium on the rat diaphragm. Diaphragms were submitted to an indirect frequency stimulation of 0.1 and 1 Hz (Groups I and II, respectively). Subgroups were formed (n=5) according to the neuromuscular blocker employed (pancuronium-2 microg/ml and rocuronium-4 microg/ml). The twitch height depression was evaluated at 5, 15 and 30 minutes after adding the neuromuscular blocker. The decrease in twitch height was greater (p<0.01) with a frequency of 1 Hz at all time periods studied both in preparations that are blocked with pancuronium and in those that are blocked with rocuronium. The frequency of stimulation interferes significantly with the installation of neuromuscular blockade produced by pancuronium and rocuronium, since the reduction in amplitude of the rat diaphragm response was greater for 1 Hz frequencies, at all periods studied.
