Question Calcium induced calcium release

FA 2012 pg. 412
Muscle Contraction #4 "calcium induced calcium release"

Is this an error??? The SR ryanodine receptors are physically coupled to the dihydropyridine receptors...

Just did a UWORLD question ID 144 which said ECF Calcium is not needed in skeletal muscle contraction and that Cardiac Muscle is the only muscle that uses "calcium induced calcium release" contraction. Therefore verapamil doesn't have an effect on skeletal muscle.
