Abstract

The administration of succinylcholine enhances subsequent nondepolarizing agent in adult patients(1). However, it was reported that previous succinylcholine administration does not interfere with the recovery rate of twitch height of vecuronium (2), and does not necessitate subsequent alteration in doses of nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockade(3). The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the effect of succinylcholine on the neuromuscular transmission of subsequently administered vecuronium in pediatrics.
