Not a contraindication of succinylcholine:
|B||Recent cerebral stroke|
|C||Recent crush injury|
|D||Recent myocardial ischemia|
Recent myocardial ischemia
A injured and regenerating nerve develops extra junctional receptors which are very sensitive to depolarizing muscle relaxant (suxamethonium) and resistant to nondepolarizers. Due to this reason succinylcholine is contraindicated in:
1. Burns up to 1 year
2. Hemiplegia/paraplegia up to 6 months. J. Crush injury up to 3 months.
