The myotonic effects and duration of action of several doses of suxamethonium were determined in 24 infants and 16 children during thiopentone-fentanyl-nitrous oxide anaesthesia. Infants received suxamethonium 2, 3 or 4 mg kg-1; children received 1 or 2 mg kg-1. The increase in muscle tone during onset of neuromuscular block was independent of dose. Onset… CONTINUE READING
