“…1 Despite the publication of various practice guidelines for the management of CICV, [2][3][4] poor outcomes related to mismanagement of CICV situations, such as death and brain damage, still persist. [5][6][7][8][9][10] Situational stress, low familiarity with other techniques of tracheal intubation other than direct laryngoscopy, and lack of adherence to published emergency airway algorithms are thought to be important reasons for this reality. 1,3,7,8 Simulation has proven value in training management of emergency situations in anesthesia.…”

The efficacy of dantrolene was demonstrated first in naturally occurring breeds of heavily muscled swine and then tested in humans.…”
