ACEM Primary Pharmacology of Suxamethnoium: the Pharmacokinetics; Pharmacodynamics; Clinical uses; Adverse effects
Rapid sequence intubation (RSI) is an airway management technique that produces inducing immediate unresponsiveness (induction agent) and muscular relaxation (neuromuscular blocking agent) and is the fastest and most effective means of controlling the emergency airway
Paralytics for Intubation of the Critically Ill. should suxamethonium or rocuronium be used for rapid sequence intubation? is a neuromuscular blocker even necessary for intubation of the critically ill? (facilitated or sedation only intubation)
So, what are you gonna use for this rapid sequence intubation --- roc or sux? Can you answer the hard questions to determine once and for all, whether roc rocks and sux sucks or if it should be the other way around?
