A quaternary skeletal muscle relaxant usually used in the form of its bromide, chloride, or iodide. It is a depolarizing relaxant, acting in about 30 seconds and with a duration of effect averaging three to five minutes. Succinylcholine is used in surgical, anesthetic, and other procedures in which a brief period of muscle relaxation is called for.
Drugs that interrupt transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction by causing sustained depolarization of the motor end plate. These agents are primarily used as adjuvants in surgical anesthesia to cause skeletal muscle relaxation.
Drugs that interrupt transmission of nerve impulses at the skeletal neuromuscular junction. They can be of two types, competitive, stabilizing blockers (NEUROMUSCULAR NONDEPOLARIZING AGENTS) or noncompetitive, depolarizing agents (NEUROMUSCULAR DEPOLARIZING AGENTS). Both prevent acetylcholine from triggering the muscle contraction and they are used as anesthesia adjuvants, as relaxants during electroshock, in convulsive states, etc.
Drugs that interrupt transmission at the skeletal neuromuscular junction without causing depolarization of the motor end plate. They prevent acetylcholine from triggering muscle contraction and are used as muscle relaxants during electroshock treatments, in convulsive states, and as anesthesia adjuvants.
Monoquaternary homolog of PANCURONIUM. A non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent with shorter duration of action than pancuronium. Its lack of significant cardiovascular effects and lack of dependence on good kidney function for elimination as well as its short duration of action and easy reversibility provide advantages over, or alternatives to, other established neuromuscular blocking agents.
Androstanes and androstane derivatives which are substituted in any position with one or more hydroxyl groups.
Involuntary contraction of the muscle fibers innervated by a motor unit. Fasciculations can often by visualized and take the form of a muscle twitch or dimpling under the skin, but usually do not generate sufficient force to move a limb. They may represent a benign condition or occur as a manifestation of MOTOR NEURON DISEASE or PERIPHERAL NERVOUS SYSTEM DISEASES. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1294)
A procedure involving placement of a tube into the trachea through the mouth or nose in order to provide a patient with oxygen and anesthesia.
A bis-quaternary steroid that is a competitive nicotinic antagonist. As a neuromuscular blocking agent it is more potent than CURARE but has less effect on the circulatory system and on histamine release.
The intentional interruption of transmission at the NEUROMUSCULAR JUNCTION by external agents, usually neuromuscular blocking agents. It is distinguished from NERVE BLOCK in which nerve conduction (NEURAL CONDUCTION) is interrupted rather than neuromuscular transmission. Neuromuscular blockade is commonly used to produce MUSCLE RELAXATION as an adjunct to anesthesia during surgery and other medical procedures. It is also often used as an experimental manipulation in basic research. It is not strictly speaking anesthesia but is grouped here with anesthetic techniques. The failure of neuromuscular transmission as a result of pathological processes is not included here.
Rapid and excessive rise of temperature accompanied by muscular rigidity following general anesthesia.
A barbiturate that is administered intravenously for the induction of general anesthesia or for the production of complete anesthesia of short duration.
Anesthesia caused by the breathing of anesthetic gases or vapors or by insufflating anesthetic gases or vapors into the respiratory tract.
A neuromuscular blocker and active ingredient in CURARE; plant based alkaloid of Menispermaceae.
Procedure in which patients are induced into an unconscious state through use of various medications so that they do not feel pain during surgery.
A major nerve of the upper extremity. In humans, the fibers of the ulnar nerve originate in the lower cervical and upper thoracic spinal cord (usually C7 to T1), travel via the medial cord of the brachial plexus, and supply sensory and motor innervation to parts of the hand and forearm.
A masticatory muscle whose action is closing the jaws.
An aspect of cholinesterases.
Continuous involuntary sustained muscle contraction which is often a manifestation of BASAL GANGLIA DISEASES. When an affected muscle is passively stretched, the degree of resistance remains constant regardless of the rate at which the muscle is stretched. This feature helps to distinguish rigidity from MUSCLE SPASTICITY. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p73)
A transient absence of spontaneous respiration.
Compounds that contain the decamethylenebis(trimethyl)ammonium radical. These compounds frequently act as neuromuscular depolarizing agents.
A non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agent with short duration of action. Its lack of significant cardiovascular effects and its lack of dependence on good kidney function for elimination provide clinical advantage over alternate non-depolarizing neuromuscular blocking agents.
Cyclic GLUCANS consisting of eight (8) glucopyranose units linked by 1,4-glycosidic bonds.
A nonflammable, halogenated, hydrocarbon anesthetic that provides relatively rapid induction with little or no excitement. Analgesia may not be adequate. NITROUS OXIDE is often given concomitantly. Because halothane may not produce sufficient muscle relaxation, supplemental neuromuscular blocking agents may be required. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p178)
Nitrogen oxide (N2O). A colorless, odorless gas that is used as an anesthetic and analgesic. High concentrations cause a narcotic effect and may replace oxygen, causing death by asphyxia. It is also used as a food aerosol in the preparation of whipping cream.
An aspect of cholinesterase (EC 3.1.1.8).
Drugs administered before an anesthetic to decrease a patient's anxiety and control the effects of that anesthetic.
A sulfur-containing analog of butyrylcholine which is hydrolyzed by butyrylcholinesterase to butyrate and thiocholine. It is used as a reagent in the determination of butyrylcholinesterase activity.
The synapse between a neuron and a muscle.
Ultrashort-acting anesthetics that are used for induction. Loss of consciousness is rapid and induction is pleasant, but there is no muscle relaxation and reflexes frequently are not reduced adequately. Repeated administration results in accumulation and prolongs the recovery time. Since these agents have little if any analgesic activity, they are seldom used alone except in brief minor procedures. (From AMA Drug Evaluations Annual, 1994, p174)
Rapidly decreasing response to a drug or physiologically active agent after administration of a few doses. In immunology, it is the rapid immunization against the effect of toxic doses of an extract or serum by previous injection of small doses. (Dorland, 28th ed)
An intravenous anesthetic agent which has the advantage of a very rapid onset after infusion or bolus injection plus a very short recovery period of a couple of minutes. (From Smith and Reynard, Textbook of Pharmacology, 1992, 1st ed, p206). Propofol has been used as ANTICONVULSANTS and ANTIEMETICS.
A disorder in which the adductor muscles of the VOCAL CORDS exhibit increased activity leading to laryngeal spasm. Laryngismus causes closure of the VOCAL FOLDS and airflow obstruction during inspiration.

Effects of an intubating dose of succinylcholine and rocuronium on the larynx and diaphragm: an electromyographic study in humans. (1/306)

BACKGROUND: Paralysis of the vocal cords is one objective of using relaxants to facilitate tracheal intubation. This study compares the neuromuscular blocking effect of succinylcholine and rocuronium on the larynx, the diaphragm, and the adductor pollicis muscle. METHODS: Electromyographic response was used to compare the neuromuscular blocking effect of succinylcholine and rocuronium on the laryngeal adductor muscles, the diaphragm, and the adductor pollicis muscle. Sixteen patients undergoing elective surgery were anesthetized with propofol and fentanyl, and their tracheas were intubated without neuromuscular blocking agents. The recurrent laryngeal and phrenic nerves were stimulated at the neck. The electromyographic response was recorded from electrodes placed on the endotracheal tube and intercostally before and after administration of 1 mg/kg succinylcholine or 0.6 mg/kg rocuronium. RESULTS: The maximum effect was greater at the adductor pollicis (100 and 99%) than at the larynx (96 and 97%) and the diaphragm (94 and 96%) after administration of succinylcholine and rocuronium, respectively (P < or = 0.05). Onset time was not different between the larynx (58+/-10 s), the diaphragm (57+/-8 s), and the adductor pollicis (54+/-13 s), after succinylcholine (all mean +/- SD). After rocuronium, onset time was 124+/-39 s at the larynx, 130+/-44 s at the diaphragm, and 115+/-21 s at the adductor pollicis. After succinylcholine administration, time to 90% recovery was 8.3+/-3.2, 7.2+/-3.5, and 9.1+/-3.0 min at the larynx, the diaphragm, and the adductor pollicis, respectively. Time to 90% recovery after rocuronium administration was 34.9+/-7.6, 30.4+/-4.2, and 49.1+/-11.4 min at the larynx, the diaphragm, and the adductor pollicis, respectively. CONCLUSION: Neuromuscular blocking effect of muscle relaxants on the larynx can be measured noninvasively by electromyography. Although the larynx appears to be resistant to muscle relaxants, we could not demonstrate that its onset time differed from that of peripheral muscles.  (+info)

Halothane induces calcium release from human skinned masseter muscle fibers. (2/306)

BACKGROUND: An increase in masseter muscle tone in response to halothane or succinylcholine anesthesia (or both) can be observed in healthy persons. Thus the authors compared the fiber-type halothane and succinylcholine sensitivities in human masseter and vastus lateralis muscles. METHODS: Masseter and vastus lateralis muscle segments were obtained from 13 and 9 healthy persons, respectively. After chemical skinning of a single fiber and loading the sarcoplasmic reticulum with Ca++ 0.16 microM solution, halothane (0.5-4 vol% bubbled in the incubating solution), succinylcholine (0.1 microM to 10 mM), or both sensitivities were defined as the concentration inducing more than 10% of the maximum tension obtained by application of 16 microM Ca++ solution. The myofilament response to Ca++ was studied with and without halothane by observing the isometric tension of skinned masseter fibers challenged with increasing concentrations of Ca++. Muscle fiber type was determined by the difference in strontium-induced tension measurements. RESULTS: A significant difference in halothane sensitivity was found between type 1 masseter fibers (0.6+/-0.2 vol%; mean +/- SD) versus type 1 (2.7+/-0.6 vol%) and type 2 vastus lateralis muscle (2.5+/-0.4 vol%). Succinylcholine did not induce Ca++ release by the sarcoplasmic reticulum. In the masseter muscle, 0.75 vol% halothane decreased the maximal activated tension by 40% but did not change the Ca++ concentration that yields 50% of the maximal tension. CONCLUSIONS: The very low halothane threshold for Ca++ release from the masseter muscle usually could be counteracted by a direct negative inotropic effect on contractile proteins. However, halothane may increase the sensitivity of the sarcoplasmic reticulum Ca++ release to succinylcholine-induced depolarization, leading to an increase in masseter muscle tone.  (+info)

Characteristics of recombinant human butyrylcholinesterase. (3/306)

AIM: To study the biochemical-pharmacological properties of the recombinant human butyrylcholinesterase (rhBChE) and thereby to size up the potential possibility of using it as a detoxifying agent in succinylcholine intoxication. METHODS: CHO-dhfr cells were transfected with plasmids by electroporation. BChE activity was determined colorimetrically by 5, 5'-dithiobis-(2-nitrobenzoic acid) (DTNB) method. Antigenicity was estimated by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and Western blot. RESULTS: The maximal expression amounted to 25.83 ng.h-1/10(6) cells. The rhBChE was highly similar to the native human BChE (nhBChE) in terms of its catalytic property, substrate affinity, inhibitor sensitivity, reactivation, stability, and immunoreactivity with anti-nhBChE antibodies. Mice challenged with 1.5 lethal dose of succinylcholine preincubated with rhBChE survived without any symptoms of intoxication. CONCLUSION: The rhBChE and nhBChE exhibit similar biochemical-pharmacological features. It is of potential value in practical use.  (+info)

Comparison of intubating conditions after rapacuronium (Org 9487) and succinylcholine following rapid sequence induction in adult patients. (4/306)

We have assessed intubating conditions provided by rapacuronium (Org 9487) and succinylcholine after rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia in adult patients undergoing elective surgery. We studied 335 patients, ASA I and II, in five centres. Two hundred and thirty-four subjects with normal body weight and 101 obese subjects were allocated randomly to one of four treatment groups differing in the neuromuscular blocking drug administered (rapacuronium 1.5 mg kg-1 or succinylcholine 1 mg kg-1) and in the technique used for induction of anaesthesia (fentanyl 2-3 micrograms kg-1 with thiopental 3-6 mg kg-1 or alfentanil 20 micrograms kg-1 with propofol 1.5-2 mg kg-1). Intubation was started at 50 s by an anaesthetist blinded to the drugs used. Intubating conditions were clinically acceptable (excellent or good) in 89.4% of patients after rapacuronium and in 97.4% after succinylcholine (P = 0.004), the estimated difference being 8.1% (95% confidence interval (CI) 2.0-14.1%). Neither anaesthetic technique nor subject group had an influence on intubating conditions. After intubation, the maximum increase in heart rate averaged 23.1 (SD 25.4%) and 9.4 (26.1%) after rapacuronium and succinylcholine, respectively (P < 0.001). Pulmonary side effects (bronchospasm and increased airway pressure) were observed in 10.7% (95% CI 5.8-17%) and 4.1% (95% CI 1.3-8.8%) of patients given rapacuronium and succinylcholine, respectively (P = 0.021). We conclude that after rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia in adults, clinically acceptable intubating conditions were achieved less frequently after rapacuronium 1.5 mg kg-1 than after succinylcholine.  (+info)

Hemodynamic and metabolic manifestations of acute endotoxin infusion in pigs with and without the malignant hyperthermia mutation. (5/306)

BACKGROUND: The hypermetabolic state induced by acute endotoxemia and malignant hyperthermia (MH) may be indistinguishable. The aims of this study were (1) to investigate the differences between MH and sepsis, (2) to determine whether acute endotoxemia can trigger MH, and (3) to establish the effects of dantrolene in these two disorders. METHODS: Three groups of swine were studied. All pigs were invasively monitored and initially anesthetized with nontriggering agents. A placebo MH-susceptible group (n = 5) received normal saline whereas the endotoxin groups (MH-susceptible, n = 6; MH-negative, n = 4) received intravenous endotoxin (250 microg/kg total) during 2.5 h. Halothane (1.5%) and succinylcholine (2-4 mg/kg) were then administered, followed by two doses of dantrolene (4 mg/kg total). RESULTS: Endotoxin infusion resulted in pulmonary hypertension and systemic hypotension in pigs with and without the MH mutation, but did not trigger MH. Halothane and succinylcholine triggered MH, evidenced by a markedly higher oxygen consumption in the MH-susceptible pigs that received endotoxin (325+/-196 ml/min) and those that did not (374+/-110 ml/min) compared to the MH-negative pigs (69+/-15 ml/min, P<0.0009), as well as muscular rigidity in the susceptible animals. Dantrolene reversed these changes. Three of the six MH-susceptible pigs that received endotoxin died; two died soon after triggering and one after dantrolene administration. In contrast, none of the MH-negative pigs or the MH-susceptible pigs that did not receive endotoxin died (0 of 9 vs. 3 of 6, P = 0.044). CONCLUSION: Endotoxemia does not trigger MH, but may worsen outcome if it occurs.  (+info)

Effect of rocuronium compared with succinylcholine on intraocular pressure during rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia. (6/306)

We have compared the effect of rocuronium and succinylcholine on intraocular pressure (IOP) during rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia using propofol and fentanyl, in a randomized double-blind study. We studied 30 adult patients, allocated to one of two groups. Anaesthesia was induced with fentanyl 2 micrograms kg-1 and propofol until loss of verbal response. This was followed by succinylcholine 1.5 mg kg-1 (group S; n = 15) or rocuronium 0.9 mg kg-1 (group R; n = 15). Laryngoscopy was performed 60 s later. IOP, mean arterial pressure (MAP) and heart rate (HR) were measured before induction, immediately before intubation and every minute after intubation for 5 min. A Keeler Pulsair air impulse tonometer was used to measure IOP and the mean of two readings obtained in the right eye at each measurement time was recorded. Intubating conditions were evaluated according to a simple scoring system. IOP in the succinylcholine group was significantly greater than that in the rocuronium group (mean 21.6 (SEM 1.4) mm Hg vs 13.3 (1.4) mm Hg; P < 0.001). Intubating conditions were equally good in both groups. We conclude that with rapid sequence induction of anaesthesia using propofol and fentanyl, rocuronium did not cause as great an increase in IOP as succinylcholine and may be an alternative in open eye injury cases.  (+info)

Intramuscular rapacuronium in infants and children: dose-ranging and tracheal intubating conditions. (7/306)

BACKGROUND: Intravenous rapacuronium's rapid onset and short duration suggest that intramuscular rapacuronium might facilitate tracheal intubation without prolonged paralysis. Accordingly, the authors injected rapacuronium into the deltoid muscle to determine the optimal dose and time for intubation in pediatric patients. METHODS: Unpremedicated patients (aged, 2 months to 3 yr) were studied. Part I: Spontaneous minute ventilation (V(E)) and twitch tension were measured during N2O/halothane anesthesia. Rapacuronium (2.2-5.5 mg/kg, given intramuscularly, n = 23), succinylcholine (4 mg/kg, given intramuscularly, n = 12), or vecuronium (0.1 mg/kg, given intravenously, n = 15) was given. Time to 50% depression of V(E) and 10% recovery of twitch were measured. Dose for each patient was changed 10-20% according to the previous patient's response. Part II: In 22 patients anesthetized with 0.82-1.0% halothane, the optimal rapacuronium dose determined in part I (infants, 2.8 mg/kg; children, 4.8 mg/kg) was given intramuscularly. Laryngoscopy was scored. Time to laryngoscopy was increased or decreased 0.5 min according to the previous patient's response. RESULTS: Part I: Rapacuronium typically depressed ventilation in < or = 2 min with 10% twitch recovery in 20-60 min. With succinylcholine, median time to ventilatory depression was 1.3 and 1.1 min for infants and children, respectively; for vecuronium, 0.7 and 0.6 min. Part I: Intubating conditions were good-excellent at 3.0 and 2.5 min in infants and children, respectively; time to 10% twitch recovery (mean +/- SD) was 31 +/- 14 and 36 +/- 14 min in the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: This pilot study indicates that deltoid injection of rapacuronium, 2.8 mg/kg in infants and 4.8 mg/kg in children, permits tracheal intubation within 2.5-3.0 min, despite a light plane of anesthesia. Duration of action is intermediate.  (+info)

Comparison of the intubation conditions provided by rapacuronium (ORG 9487) or succinylcholine in humans during anesthesia with fentanyl and propofol. (8/306)

BACKGROUND: Currently, the only approved muscle relaxant with a rapid onset and short duration of action is succinylcholine, a drug with some undesirable effects. Rapacuronium is an investigational nondepolarizing relaxant that also has a rapid onset and short duration and consequently should be compared with succinylcholine in its ability to facilitate rapid tracheal intubation. METHODS: This prospective, randomized clinical trial involved 336 patients. Anesthesia was induced with fentanyl and propofol and either 1.5 mg/kg rapacuronium or 1.0 mg/kg succinylcholine. The goal was to accomplish tracheal intubation by 60 s after administration of the neuromuscular blocking drug. Endotracheal intubation was performed, and conditions were graded by a blinded investigator. Recovery of neuromuscular function was assessed by electromyography. RESULTS: Intubation conditions were evaluated in 236 patients. Intubation by 60 s after drug administration occurred in 100% of patients with rapacuronium and in 98% with succinylcholine. Intubation conditions were excellent or good in 87% of patients with rapacuronium and in 95% with succinylcholine (P < 0.05). The time (median and range) to the first recovery of the train-of-four response was 8.0 (2.8-20.0) min with rapacuronium and 5.7 (1.8-17.7) min with succinylcholine (P < 0.05). The overall incidence of adverse effects was similar with both drugs. CONCLUSIONS: A 1.5-mg/kg dose of rapacuronium effectively facilitates rapid tracheal intubation. It can be considered a valid alternative to 1.0 mg/kg succinylcholine for this purpose.  (+info)

Careful inspection of the data suggests that although this is true, on average, not all patients are average. Functional residual capacity may be reduced and/or oxygen consumption increased and/or preoxygenation not optimal. 1 Also, succinylcholine does not have the same effect in all subjects, even if their plasma cholinesterase activity is within the normal range. Kopman et al. 3 found a 5-min range for all levels of recovery. In Hayes et al. s study, 8 manual ventilation had to be applied in 11% of cases to prevent hypoxia, and in Heier et al. s study, 7 one subject was apneic for 9 min! The safety of succinylcholine is limited by these relatively sensitive patients, and interestingly, a decrease in dose does not have a marked effect on the upper range of duration (10, 10.5, and 11 min in Kopman et al. s study 3 for 0.4, 0.6, and 1 mg/kg, respectively). This is not unexpected, because the half-life of succinylcholine is less than 1 min. 10 Doubling the dose of any drug should prolong its ...

A previously validated electrospray tandem mass spectrometry method developed for the determination of succinylcholine dichloride in plasma was used. This method was based upon a stable isotope dilution assay using hexadeuterosuccinylcholine diiodide as the internal standard and was shown to be sp
Background. Succinylcholine is comprised of two acetylcholine molecules joined together and acts as a depolarizing neuromuscular blocker by binding acetylcholine receptors at the post-synaptic neuromuscular junction end plate. The resultant end plate depolarization initially stimulates muscle contraction; however, because succinylcholine is not degraded by acetylcholinesterase, it remains in the neuromuscular junction to cause continuous end plate depolarization and subsequent muscle relaxation. This is termed a phase I block.. Mechanism of Phase II Block. With increasing doses of succinylcholine (i.e., a large single dose, repeated doses, or a continuous infusion), a phase II block may occur. Continuous activation of acetylcholine receptors leads to ongoing shifts of sodium into the cell and potassium out of the cell. Despite this, the post-junctional membrane potential eventually moves in the direction of normal even in the continued presence of succinylcholine. This is due to increased ...

Airway maneuvers were inherited from the artisanal era: head extension and mandibular advancement. The most common maneuver was head extension, also used in bronchoscopy and laryngoscopy. Basic airway management success was essential for traditional inhalation anesthesia (ether, chloroform) and for the use of the new anesthetic agents (cyclopropane, halothane) and intravenous drugs (thiopental, curare, succinylcholine ...
Patients will receive the anesthetic that is traditionally given which includes appropriate doses of succinylcholine. Serum potassium and creatinine phosphokinase (CK) levels will be determined pre and post anesthesia; serum and urine myoglobin will be determined post anesthesia. Vital signs data [i.e., heart rate (arrhythmias) and arterial blood pressure] will be compared pre and post anesthesia. In addition patients will be asked about the presence of muscle pain (myalgia) 1 hour before discharge from the recovery room and the following day post ECT.. ...

And they know how to handle combative patients. There are wonderful medicines...... succinylcholine chloride........pavulon, that paralzye patients. When paralyzed, patients quit breathing for themselves and my crews have to breath for them manually. With succinylcholine, (sux), the patient is fully concious and aware they cant breathe.

Upregulation of Acetylcholine receptors leads to increased sensitivity to Succinylcholine and risk for hyperkalemia due to depolarization of the muscle membrane. May occur in:. 1) Spinal Cord Injury. 2) Stroke. 3) Burns. • After immobilization, upregulation of NAChRs. • Avoid Succinylcholine - especially after 24 hours post burn and for up to 1-2 years post burn (may take months to years to return to preburn levels of NAChR). • Resistance to nondepolarizing NMBDs and increased sensitivity to succinylcholine. 4) Prolonged immobility. 5) Prolonged exposure to neuromuscular blockers. • Typically seen in ICUs to facilitate mechanical ventilation, tetanus, status epilepticus, reduction in oxygen consumption. 6) Multiple Sclerosis. • Demyelination of the CNS. • Attention autonomic dysfunction. 7) Guillain Barre syndrome. • Demyelination and axonal degeneration produce functional denervation of muscle and upregulation of NAchRs at the postsynaptic membrane. • Pay attention to autonomic ...

Some of our waste is generated by single-dose vials. When I draw up succinylcholine, I draw up a 10cc syringe. Very few patients would require the full 10cc, and furthermore, there are few situations in which you dose succinylcholine twice due to risk of bradycardia and asystole. So for any patient who gets succinylcholine, some amount is wasted. Although I could calculate how much each patient would need and draw up a syringe with just the right amount, the vials are supposed to be single-dose; sterility is not guaranteed if I use a vial for multiple syringes. So like every other anesthesiologist, I draw up the full dose even though I never intend to give it all. This costs the system not only the additional drug, but also the biochemical disposal of the extra medication and the financial costs. This boggles my mind; why havent we figured out a way to reduce this? And the topic raises other concerns; should patients be charged for the amount of medication they receive (such as 5cc of ...

When a patient has a contraindication to succinylcholine, rocuronium bromide is the paralytic agent of choice. At a dose of 1.0 - 1.2 mg/kg IV, rocuronium achieves intubating conditions similar to those of succinylcholine and lasts 50 minutes. ...
Methodology: Fifty patients of both sexes of ASA physical status I and II, between 15-50 years of age were selected for the study for one year. Patients with clinically significant pre-existing eye disease, raised base line IOP, cardiorespiratory illness, CNS diseases, difficult airway, obesity, those receiving any drug likely to have an effect on IOP and in whom use of succinylcholine was contraindicated were excluded. Patients were randomly assigned to two equal groups. Anesthesia was induced by propofol 2 mg/kg over 30 sec in all patients. In Group V patients we used vecuronium and in Group S used succinylcholine for intubation. Statistical analysis was done with one way ANOVA using SPSS software version 15.. Results: In Group V, 28.49% decrease in IOP after induction and one min after intubation IOP was increase to 14.53% but it remain still lower than the baseline value. In Group S, there was 28.14% increase in IOP after induction and one min after intubation IOP was increase to 35.56%. ...

Causes of hyperpyrexia - What is malignant hyperpyrexia? Anesthesia related. Malignant hyperpyrexia is another term for malignant hyperthermia. This disorder is caused mainly by gas anesthetics and depolarizing paralytics (eg succinylcholine) in patients with a genetic mutation (runs in families). When these patients are exposed, they may experience a sudden increase in cellular metabolism, potentially resulting in death if not caught early and treated aggressively.
But exposure to succinylcholine and its terrifying effects has a sinister history. In the 1960s and 1970s, this drug was used as an experimental form of aversion therapy. In the 60s, patients in Atascadero State Hospital - a maximum security clinic for mentally ill and criminally insane males that is still open - were chosen for therapy if they exhibited acting out behaviors. Succinylcholine was administered with the goal of initiating paralysis...and a brief (one-minute) period of apnea (breathing cessation). Patients remained completely conscious but totally helpless as doctors lectured them about their behavioral issues. ...

1. Post-polio patients are nearly always very sensitive to sedative meds, and emergence can be prolonged. This is probably due to central neuronal changes, especially in the Reticular Activating System, from the original disease.. 2. Non-depolarizing muscle relaxants cause a greater degree of block for a longer period of time in post-polio patients. The current recommendation is to start with half the usual dose of whatever youre using, adding more as needed. This is because the poliovirus actually lived at the neuromuscular junctions during the original disease, and there are extensive anatomic changes there, even in seemingly normal muscles, which make for greater sensitivity to relaxants. Also, many patients have a significant decrease in total muscle mass. Neuromuscular monitoring intraop helps prevent overdose of muscle relaxants. Overdose has been a frequent problem.. 3. Succinylcholine often causes severe, generalized muscle pain postop. Its useful if this can be avoided, if ...
While commonly used, these wont be readily accessible to you because they are controlled substances (read habit forming): morphine, fentanyl and midazolam. Take note of the things you use on a regular basis - they serve as the things to focus on during your readings at night. You could even quiz yourself: What are we using the zofran for? Which one is the miller and which is the mac blade? What are the indications for succinylcholine?. The less inefficiencies and fumbling around, the more time you can focus on the case and be taught by the resident.. 3. Come Prepared. I personally thought the Stanford CA Tutorial was easy to read and packed with high-yield material. Pick out a chapter or two a day and discuss them with your resident..

As we all do, I went through my mental rolodex of solutions. I thought about using sedation - such as Ketamine or Versed - or using a paralytic, such as Succinylcholine. However, since the airway - although partially compromised - was at least functioning well enough, I decided against all these as I didnt want to make things worse.. Being the cautious person I am, I called for an anesthesiologist to come to the bedside. If things went well, I wouldnt need him, but if they didnt, we could both plead our cases to the jury.. Now the breath holding started...ours, that is.. When everything seemed ready and after saying a quick prayer under my breath, I had one nurse hold the childs body down and another hold the head. We did this without the comfort of sedation, so I wanted things to go seamlessly.. Using a laryngoscope with a mac blade, I put the blade in on the right side of the mouth and swept the tongue left. A glint of gold appeared, but disappeared as the child moved her tongue, and ...

  • Currently, the only approved muscle relaxant with a rapid onset and short duration of action is succinylcholine, a drug with some undesirable effects. (nih.gov)
  • No, succinylcholine should be used only when the clinician deems it necessary to have a relaxant with a rapid onset and short duration since the many side effects range from troublesome to life threatening. (apsf.org)
  • Succinylcholine, which is the only depolarizing agent in current clinical use, has the fastest onset and shortest action duration. (alpfmedical.info)
  • The onset of succinylcholine is typically achieved after 45-60 seconds, which many cite as a major advantage over rocuronium. (hemscriticalcare.com)
  • According to these results succinylcholine acted as an independent and supportive factor during onset of an MH episode. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The most dramatic complications of succinylcholine are hyperkalemic cardiac arrest and MH. (apsf.org)
  • Succinylcholine's pharmacological and chemical composition makes it neuromuscular receptor site-specific, thus succinylcholine is ineffective on smooth and cardiac muscles of the body. (statpearls.com)
  • In recent years, standard medication choices for induction were etomidate and succinylcholine. (emdocs.net)
  • Non-depolarizing muscle relaxants are also advocated as a part of a modified rapid sequence induction in patient with full stomach, where the use of succinylcholine is contraindicated, as in patient with perforated eye injury. (apicareonline.com)
  • The recalled products are specific lots of Potassium Phosphate and Succinylcholine Chloride. (asahq.org)
  • Efforts are also underway to identify additional sources of succinylcholine and potassium phosphate. (acc.org)
  • The initial metabolite of succinylcholine (SCh), succinylmonocholine, produces a tranisent negative chronotropic effect through its stimulation of sinus node muscarinic receptors. (openanesthesia.org)
  • Among the drugs we use in ECT, succinylcholine is the least predictable. (lww.com)
  • Succinylcholine is one of some 160 drugs currently listed by the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) as affected by a nationwide shortage of prescription medications. (enttoday.org)
  • The good news is that there are other muscle relaxant drugs than can almost always be used instead of succinylcholine. (netwellness.org)
  • Studies of commonly used non-depolarizing agents (vecuronium, atracurium) have shown that they are not associated with increase in IOP as seen with succinylcholine. (apicareonline.com)
  • Succinylcholine is used in surgical, anesthetic, and other procedures in which a brief period of muscle relaxation is called for. (fpnotebook.com)
  • In individuals with pseudocholinesterase deficiency (about 1 in 3000 or less), the duration of action will be much longer and succinylcholine should be avoided in these people if possible. (everything2.com)
  • The duration of action of succinylcholine appears to be determined primarily by the level of pseudocholinesterase activity in the blood and the volume of the extracellular fluid space. (elsevier.com)
  • To evaluate the influence of succinylcholine on porcine MH events, the authors investigated the hemodynamic and metabolic responses in MH susceptible (MHS) and non-susceptible (MHN) swine following either succinylcholine or halothane application alone or a combination of both substances. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Group A received succinylcholine 4 mg/kg, group B incremental doses of halothane (0.5, 1.0 vol%) and group C succinylcholine and halothane simultaneously. (biomedcentral.com)
  • While MHN pigs did not show relevant alterations, succinylcholine, halothane and the combination of both lead to significant hemodynamic and metabolic changes in MHS swine. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Hemodynamic and metabolic alterations following succinylcholine were similar to halothane in MHS pigs. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In contrast, an 18.0% prevalence rate was determined using halothane/succinylcholine challenge on 123 boars. (islandscholar.ca)
  • Intravenous injections of succinylcholine, decamethonium and hexacarbacholine increased superior rectus muscle tension and decreased the twitch responses of the superior rectus and tibialis muscles. (aspetjournals.org)
  • Generic succinylcholine injections are available. (netwellness.org)
  • Rocuronium was administered at a dose of 1.2 mg/kg and succinylcholine at 1.0 mg/kg, with patient weights "estimated," although this was not defined. (reliasmedia.com)
