William Lanier, M.D. (ANES ’84), Mayo Clinic Emeriti Staff, was honored by the journal Anesthesiology, in its Classic Papers Revisited feature. His article, published in the February 2023 print issue of the journal, is “Modulation of Cerebral Function by Muscle Afferent Activity, with Reference to Intravenous Succinylcholine.” The article describes the story behind how Dr. Lanier and his colleagues at Mayo Clinic discovered the answer to the question: How does intravenous administration of the depolarizing muscle relaxant, succinylcholine (SCh), as well as endogenous movement (e.g., hiccups, coughing, bucking) in tracheally intubated subjects, produce increases in intracranial pressure (ICP).
