Intraosseous succinylcholine for orotracheal intubation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Within the past few years, the use of intraosseous infusions has increased as a means of achieving rapid vascular access. Although initially used for fluid administration, the intraosseous administration of several drugs has been shown to be an effective alternative to the intravenous route. We present two cases of the intraosseous administration of succinylcholine (1 mg/kg) for emergency airway management in children. Intraosseous succinylcholine resulted in adequate intubating conditions within 45 seconds.
