Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is a life-threatening syndrome associated with an anesthetic trigger. Awareness of MH by all perioperative team members, from those working in the preoperative holding area to those in the Post Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU), is important in preventing negative patient outcomes. The preoperative nurse plays a crucial role in averting an MH crisis by interviewing every surgical patient for a personal and family history of MH.
The goal of this continuing education program is to provide OR nurses, physicians, and surgical technologists with information about malignant hyperthermia, including perioperative signs and management of patients who develop malignant hyperthermia.
