Succinyl Choline

Succinyl Choline is injected into patients as part of preparation for surgery. This medication relaxes the muscles and makes it easier to insert breathing tubes or other ventilation devices. It also helps the patient relax before being given general anesthesia. Doctors monitor the patients’ vital signs once they are on this medication.

Side Effects/Warnings

This medication can cause sudden cardiac arrest, especially in children. It should not be given to young people unless a child or infant needs a breathing tube in an emergency situation. Children who have diagnosed or undiagnosed muscular dystrophy are at greatest risk for cardiac arrest while on this medication.
