Abstract

Prolonged apnoea occurs occasionally after the routine use of suxamethonium chloride (Scoline). A case history is presented where the use of stabilised human serum (SHS) resulted in a dramatic reversal of this problem. Guidelines for the management of this condition with special reference to the use of SHS are discussed.
