How to use Suxim 500mg Injection :
How Suxim 500mg Injection works:
Succin is a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor non-competitive agonist
Q. What is Succin chloride used for/ how does Succin work/ how does Succin chloride work?
Succin is used in anesthesia to induce muscle relaxation during operations, to facilitate endotracheal intubation (help insert a tube into the windpipe), reduce strong muscle contraction
Q. What is Succin apnoea?
Succin apnoea occurs when a patient does not have the enzymes to metabolise the drug. Due to this, a patient may remain paralysed for an increased length of time and cannot breathe adequately at the end of an anaesthetic
Q. Why does Succin cause bradycardia (abnormally slow heart beat)?
The initial metabolite of Succin produces a transient negative chronotropic effect through its stimulation of sinus node muscarinic receptors. Repeated dosing or infusions of Succin may lead to bradycardia that is appropriately treated with atropine
Q. Why does suxamethonium cause hyperkalemia (high potassium levels in the blood)?
Administration of suxamethonium may lead to depolarization and a large efflux of intracellular potassium into the plasma thereby resulting in hyperkalemia
Q. Why does Succin cause fasciculation (twitching of muscles under the skin)?
Succin cause fasciculation by an action on some distal part of motor nerve fibres
Q. Is Succin still used?
Succin is still used during general anesthesia
Q. Is Succin reversible?
Succin is a short-acting muscle relaxant which exerts a depolarizing effect at the neuromuscular junction. This effect is not reversible pharmacologically
Q. Is Succin is contraindicated in burned patients?
Yes, Succin should not be used in burned patients
Q. What is Succin sensitivity?
Succin sensitivity is when the drug remains active for a longer period of time than is usual due to which muscles stay relaxed
Q. Does Succin cross the placenta?
In normal therapeutic doses, Succin does not cross the placental barrier in sufficient amounts.
