Abstract

Summary: Injection of a thiopentone-suxamethonium mixture is a safe method for rapid intubation in cases where the risk of regurgitation is high. It shortens the period between the onset of unconsciousness and endotracheal intubation. With the technique described the likelihood of awareness of fasciculations is very small. It forms a useful addition to the techniques available for dealing with a patient having a full stomach and it can be combined with other methods of reducing the risk of aspiration during induction of anaesthesia. © 1971 John Sherratt and Son Ltd.
