[Succinylcholine induces hyperpotassemia in patients in critically ill patients].
The use of succinylcholine in critically ill patients causes a brief but significant increase in kalemia, with slight and rare electrocardiographic changes, with maximum increases seen when the ICU stay is between 10 and 30 days, and patient immobility may play an important pathophysiological role.
The Limits of Succinylcholine for Critically Ill Patients
This study shows that the risk of arterial potassium increase (&Dgr;K) after succinylcholine injection is strongly associated with the length of ICU stay, and therisk of acute hyperkalemia ≥6.5 mmol/L is highly significant after 16 days.
Rocuronium versus succinylcholine for rapid sequence induction intubation.
Succinylcholine created superior intubation conditions to rocuronium when comparing both excellent and clinically acceptable intubating conditions, contrary to previous meta-analysis results.
Succinylcholine improves the time of performance of a tracheal intubation in prehospital critical care medicine.
The time to perform tracheal intubation can be improved by the introduction of succinylcholine into the prehospital anaesthetic protocol, as part of a training programme focusing on anaesthesia protocols.
Synergistic Effect of Acidosis and Succinylcholine‐Induced Hyperkalemia in Spinal Cord Transected Rats
Findings support the clinical practice of not using succinylcholine in patients at risk of having a pathological sensitivity to SCC and suggest SCC may be especially dangerous when administered to patients who are acidotic.
Prolonged d-Tubocurarine Infusion and/or Immobilization Cause Upregulation of Acetylcholine Receptors and Hyperkalemia to Succinylcholine in Rats
Subtherapeutic (subparalytic) doses of chronic infusion of dTC (with no immobilization) or immobilization alone ( with no dTC) independently increased number of AChRs, confirming previous speculation that AChR number plays an important role in the magnitude of the hyperkalemic response to SCh.
Changes in acetylcholine receptor number in muscle from critically ill patients receiving muscle relaxants: an investigation of the molecular mechanism of prolonged paralysis.
It is suggested that muscle relaxant-induced, denervation-like changes may at least be partially responsible for prolonged muscle paralysis after the long-term administration of muscle relaxants.
Rapid sequence induction: a national survey of practice
This survey suggests that many anaesthetists do not follow best practice when performing a rapid sequence induction, and consultants were less likely than trainees to use rocuronium as a muscle relaxant, and more likely to choose morphine if administering an opioid.

Cardiac Arrest after Succinylcholine: Mortality Greater with Rhabdomyolysis Than Receptor Upregulation
This all began during the World Congress of Anaesthesiologists in Holland in June 1992, at an extramural multinational panel convened to prepare an educational videotape on pediatric cases of sudden rhabdomyolysis and hyperkalemic cardiac arrest after administration of succinylcholine.
