Different molecule: Both Potassium Chloride and bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) are used as potassium supplements with the only difference being the part of molecule (the anion) attached to the potassium. The bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) portion of the molecule acts differently than chloride and is responsible for the fizzing in soday. It is for this reason that potassium bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) can be used as an aantacid. ...Read more

Reaction to sux: In terms of allergy in the usual sense, it may not exist with succinylcholine. My top concern would be an adverse intrinsic response to exposure to this drug, called malignant hyperthermia. This is life threatening if not immediately recognized, there is genetic predisposition(family history). Other conditions preclude use of this drug too, renal failure, certain neurologic conditions also. ...Read more
Is it possible that succinylcholine drugs(nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure?
Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!
No.: Succinylcholine actually causes an increase in intraocular pressure for about 10 minutes after administration. Classic teaching was not to use succ in people with open globe injuries. There are situations, though, where using succ with other agents that lower IOP is preferred because it makes intubation more smooth, avoiding hypertension and airway reactivity that is worse for the situation anyway ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Potrate: Mb6 solution does not contain vitamin b2 (riboflavin), as far as i can tell. It does contain vitamin b6 (has multiple forms, but pyridoxal phosphate is active & involved in many metabolic reactions). The solution can be used to make urine less acidic -- a good idea if you have uric acid kidney stones. ...Read more

For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

In metabolic alkalosis which one investigation help most in management serum NA,serum chloride,serum K,urine NA,urine chloride ?
I was curious as to a hypothetical situation of the side effects/symptoms of the succinylcholine chloride injection administered orally.
Dangerous: This is a very potent drug that is given intravenously only. Using it orally there is some possibility of it being absorbed through your mucus membranes. It is really playing with danger to attempt oral administration. Death is one side effect. ...Read more
Maybe: I am not aware of this. Etomidate comes in a 35% solution with propylene glycol which might give a false positive depending on the assay method, but this would not last long, would not likely be high and there would not likely be any concern of etoh intake around the time of etomidate or succ use. ...Read more
Important: I don't think you have a family "allergy" as much as a deficiency in the enzyme that breaks down succinylcholine, (pseudocholinesterase) which can occur quite commonly. It is IMPERATIVE that you tell your anesthesia provider this information. They can either use an alternative drug, or use succinylcholine and know that it would work longer. You can be tested to know if you have this problem. ...Read more
