ECT emergence agitation and methohexital-succinylcholine interaction. Case report.


Two separate methods of preventing post-ECT emergence agitation are increasing the succinylcholine dose to about 1.1 mg/kg and adding a methohexital bolus of about 0.67 mg/kg immediately at seizure end. These methods can work separately and additively without any expectation of diminishing treatment efficacy. A relevant case is described.
