Studying the Safety and Effectiveness of Experimental Sugammadex Given According to Ideal vs. Actual Body Weight in Obese Patients
“This study is for morbidly obese patients scheduled to have surgery that will require a neuromuscular blocking agent.”
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Sugammadex when administered according to actual body weight (ABW) as compared to ideal body weight (IBW) for the reversal of both moderate and deep neuromuscular blockade (NMB) induced by either Rocuronium or Vecuronium in morbidly obese participants. The primary hypothesis of this investigation is that, compared to obese participants dosed based on IBW, obese participants receiving Sugammadex according to ABW will demonstrate a faster time to recovery to a Train Of Four (TOF) ratio of ≥0.9 (i.e. faster NMB reversal), pooled across NMB depth and type of neuromuscular blocking agent (NMBA; Rocuronium or Vecuronium) administered.
