In brief: Succ side effects
The effects of succinylcholine include whole body relaxation and paralysis used generally to calm combative or delirious patients who need to have a breathing tube placed for control of their airway or to undergo an operation.
It can cause increased potassium from muscle spasm and twitching and can cause malignant hyperthermia rarely but this is very serious. Overall, it has a limited amt of uses.
