Summary

Anaesthesia and peri-operative care in the primary Periodic Paralysis Disorders

Adverse reactions to anaesthesia, including life-threatening events, are a serious concern for patients with Periodic Paralysis Disorders. Many of our patients report serious events associated with anesthesia and side effects which may linger for days to months.

There is rarely time for a surgical team to comb through journals and texts for the specialized knowledge needed to care for the patient with periodic paralysis.

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE:

Management Strategies For Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis

In 2009 Professor Dr. Frank Lehmann-Horn of Ulm University, Ulm Germany, gave a presentation on managing hypokalemic periodic paralysis at the Periodic Paralysis Association's conference held in Orlando Florida. This presentation contained so much valuable information in such a compact and understandable format that we asked Dr. Lehmann-Horn for his permission to include it on our website, for the benefit of physicians and patients.
