**Priming:** Administration of a small sub-paralyzing dose of non-depolarizing agent (10% of intubating dose) is given 2-4 minutes before administering a 2nd large dose for tracheal intubation; this priming technique accelerate the onset of non-depolarizing NM blockade by 30-60 seconds.

**Self-taming:** Succinylcholine cause muscle fasciculation which can be reduced or abolished by the administration of a smaller dose of succinylcholine before the administration of the bolus.

**Phase II block:** On prolonged exposure to succinylcholine the characteristics of the block change and features of non-depolarizing blockade appear.
