Myotonic Anesthesia Guidelines

The use of anesthesia raises special risks to DM patients, which include heightened sensitivity to sedatives and analgesics. Serious complications are most common in the post-anesthesia period when risk of aspiration and other complications are increased. 

Myotonic has published two versions of its Anesthesia Guidelines:

  • A handy one-page summary of the anesthesia guidelines to share with your clinician and anesthesiologist.
  • The complete "Practical Suggestions for the Anesthetic Management of a Myotonic Dystrophy Patient".

Download an electronic copy of the latest versions of both documents on the Toolkits & Publications page.
