A 5 year old boy suffering from Duchenne muscular dystrophy has to undergo tendon lengthening procedure. The most appropriate anaesthetic would be:
|A||Induction with intravenous thiopentone and N2O and halothane for maintenance|
|B||Induction with intravenous propofol and N2O and oxygen for maintenance|
|C||Induction with IV suxamethonium and N2O and halothane for maintenance|
|D||Inhalational induction with inhalational halothane and N2O oxygen for maintenance|
Induction with intravenous propofol and N2O and oxygen for maintenance
These patients are at high risk of malignant hyperthermia so succinylcholine and halothane should not be used so only choice left is So [although propofol may induce myoclonic activity but incidence of this complication is only remote (1 in 50.000)].
