  • Cardiac Arrhythmia

    The probable cause of arrhythmia is succinylcholine-induced hyperkalemia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Meta-analysis of CA alone did not have a significant benefit on response rate compared to amiodarone in patients with atrial fibrillation (Af) and atrial flutter (AF) [relative[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] While there is little doubt about the threat of lethal arrhythmias due to hyperkalemia, convincing evidence for the danger of low potassium dialysate and rapid or excess potassium[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
