What is the treatment of phase II blockade?
Treatment of weakness attributed to succinylcholine, regardless of its nature, is airway control and positive pressure ventilation until adequate strength returns to the muscles of respiration. Phase II block generally resolves spontaneously within 30–60 minutes. Some authors have noted an accelerated recovery from phase II block when neostigmine or edrophonium have been administered. The response is not predictable, and attention to clinical signs of neuromuscular strength must be followed during this period.
