Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?

Can these cause any issues with hearing :potassium chloride, disodium phosphate dodecahydrate and sodium dihydrophosphate dihydrate?

Hearing: It is unlikely that any hearing loss is related to the items you list. Hearing tests are essential - I have had them and am wearing hearing aids. Many big stores offer hearing tests at no cost. In my area it is Costco or Sam's Club. There should be something like this all over the USA. ...Read more

What is the difference between potassium chloride and bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate)?

What is the difference between potassium chloride and bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate)?

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

Whats succinylcholine allergy?

Whats succinylcholine allergy?

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

1 doctor agreed:
Is it possible that succinylcholine drugs(nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure?

No: Succinylcholine is known to increase intraocular minimally when given to secure the airway. The increase is small and passing, therefore it has been used in patients with increased intraocular pressure. ...Read more

Can succinylcholine drugs (nicotinic depolarizing neuromuscular blocker) decrease intraocular pressure? Any answers appreciated!

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 more
