Please forgive me if this is not the appropriate place to post this, but I figure the best people to answer my questions are here are on this forum. 1. Can dantrolene be used to provide standard muscular paralysis in place of or in conjunction with succinylcholine/vecuronium etc. ? 2. Could nicotine theoretically be used for reversal of nondepolarizing neuromuscular blockade? A med student asked me these questions and I didn't have any good answers.
