Plasma ionized calcium during paediatric anaesthesia: effects of pH and succinylcholine.

Abstract

Variations of plasma ionized calcium and pH were studied in 16 children anaesthetized with halothane and succinylcholine for minor surgery. During anaesthesia, a close negative correlation was noted between pH and ionized calcium. Intubation was followed by a fall of the ionized calcium concentration. A mean decrease of 0.04 mmol X L-1 was noted, without pH… (More)
