We studied the effect of intravenous (IV) thiamylal or ketamine on the increases in serum myoglobin, creatine kinase (CK), and potassium induced by succinylcholine under halothane anesthesia.Ninety patients were divided into three groups. In Group O, succinylcholine (1.0 mg/kg) was administered after an inhaled induction of anesthesia with halothane. In Group T, thiamylal (4.0-5.0 mg/kg), and in Group K, ketamine (1.5-2.0 mg/kg) was injected prior to succinylcholine administration. Anesthesia… 
Muscular Injury After Succinylcholine and Electroconvulsive Therapy
TLDR
It is unexpectedly concluded that the psychiatric patients who received electroconvulsive therapy had less effect of muscular damage associated with succinylcholine than the surgical patients did.

[Effects of succinylcholine on serum levels of myoglobin and CK in children under halothane or enflurane anesthesia].
TLDR
The results indicate that increases in Mb and CK values were mainly induced by SCC injection and that SCC might play some roles in development of malignant hyperthermia.
Effects of different doses of thiopentone on the increase in serum myoglobin induced by suxamethonium in children.
TLDR
The results indicate that to prevent a marked elevation in serum myoglobin after administration of suxamethonium, thiopentone 4 mg kg-1 should be administered.
The influence of ketamine induction on potassium changes and fasciculations following suxamethonium.
SUMMARY Plasma potassium levels were measured during induction with thiopentone or ketamine and subsequent administration of suxamethonium. The presence and magnitude of fasciculations following
THE INHIBITORY EFFECT OF D‐TUBOCURARINE ON THE INCREASE OF SERUM‐CREATINE‐KINASE ACTIVITY PRODUCED BY INTERMITTENT SUXAMETHONIUM ADMINISTRATION DURING HALOTHANE ANAESTHESIA
TLDR
The increase in serum‐creatine‐kinase (CPK) activity caused by intermittently administered suxamethonium was measured and the effect of tubo‐curarine was studied in 51 ophthalmic patients.
Myoglobinemia after a Single Dose of Succinylcholine
TLDR
The development of myoglobinemia after the administration of succinylcholine, although it did not appear to affect recovery from surgery, accentuates the need for another type of short-acting muscle relaxant for use in children.

TLDR
Serum potassium levels showed a significant decrease after reaching the first surgical plane, and after the administration of the depolarizing agent suxamethonium serum potassium levels increased significantly more in the two halothane groups than in the thiopentone group.
The Source of Increased Plasma Potassium Following Succinylcholine
TLDR
These findings suggest that the rise in potassium is due to muscle trauma induced by the relaxant during the period of fasciculation and this is confirmed by an increase in creatine phosphokinase enzyme activity.
RISE IN SERUM CREATINE PHOSPHOKINASE ASSOCIATED WITH AGENTS USED IN ANAESTHESIA
TLDR
It is concluded that suxamethonium is the most important agent for the release of creatine phosphokinase from muscle during anaesthesia.
Suxamethonium pains and early electrolyte changes
TLDR
There were significant differences in the electrolyte changes, depending on whether thiopentone or Althesin was used for induction, but there was no difference in the incidence of suxamethonium pains.
Suxamethonium Hyperkalaemia with Different Induction Agents
TLDR
The fall in potassium during induction of anaesthesia was less than 3%, and there were no significant differences between the induction agents with regard to this initial potassium fall.
