Rocuronium bromide is a medication used as a skeletal muscle relaxant. It belongs to a class of drugs called non-depolarizing neuromuscular blockers.

Rocuronium bromide works by blocking the action of acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, which prevents the transmission of nerve impulses to the muscles. This results in temporary paralysis of the muscles, making it easier for healthcare professionals to perform intubation, insert a breathing tube, or facilitate surgical procedures.
