When I was revived after receiving succinylcholine during the birth of my daughter 28 years ago in William Beaumont Hospital, I was given a test I THOUGHT was called a succinylcholinease, as were other female members of my family. 3 of us were told that we did not have the enzyme to "burn it off." Since that was a while ago, I wondered if "new generation" females should be tested also...

I would say yes going by the fact that this sounds like a genetic component within the family with the females. Technology has come so far that maybe if you are lucky it wouldn't cost so much maybe nothing at all but many other things play into the factors I am sure of receiving this during childbirth... I have given birth to 3 and two of them were by c-section my daughter was the only one that came by natural birth... I believe that I was given that very thing myself, however the effect was not good for me... they waited too late, I do believe that it is a simple blood test... ask an obstetrician too

I was to have surgery - I was given 6 different anesthetics, including succinylcholine. I coded on the table.
Can succinylcholine be used in folks who are out of the acute phase of a burn (50 plus years later)?
... years later
... worse each day. I am also having vision problems in 1 eye. Could I be allergic? My problems did not start until after my first ECT.
Does nutrition have any effect on the enzyme? If so, what activates the enzyme that begins fibrolysis?
