Thanks to Brian Robinson for pointing out: reversal of rocuronium with Sugammadex can occasionally cause severe bronchospasm, especially in higher doses, and this was one of the reasons its release was delayed in the U.S.
Although most sugammadex hypersensitivity reactions cause mild symptoms such as sneezing, nausea, rash, and urticaria, there is a small but finite risk of anaphylaxis with potentially life-threatening symptoms such as airway edema, bronchospasm, and cardiovascular collapse.
