Suxamethonium chloride. a short acting muscle relaxant has been reported to cause prolonged apnoea in some patients. In this study the relationship between pseudo-cholinesterase activity, dibucaine number and duration of apnoea after suxamethonium chloride was investigated in the local population. These patients were otherwise healthy but suffering from minor problems requiring surgical procedures. It may be concluded that estimation of PChE level and dibucaine number is an effective guide for the administration of suxamethonium chloride.
