Succinylcholine is a depolarizing muscle relaxant which is most widely used during anaesthesia, because of its short duration of action, lasting for about 4-5 minutes The hazards of potassium imbalance following administration of muscle relaxant during general anaesthesia make it imparative to find out combination of the relaxant and the anaesthetic agent which would minimize the risk of hyperkalaemic and hypokalaemic syndrome. study is aimed to observe changes in the serum potassium
