ICU Management of a patient with Anaphylaxis
Department of Anaesthesia- Teaching Hospital Anuradhapura, LK
Hypersensitivity reactions might occur during anaesthesia. Muscle relaxants have the highest frequency of inducing anaphylaxis. Rocuronium is the most common out of all muscle relaxants. We experienced a case of anaphylaxis occurring due to rocuronium during anaesthesia in a patient who is coming for a nephrectomy at Queens Hospital, London, UK. We managed the episode of anaphylaxis according to guidelines established by Association of Anaesthetists of Great Britain and Ireland.
