Expecting the Unexpected: Malignant Hyperthermia in Obstetrics (1 Class A CE with .5 Pharm)

Tuesday, September 25
10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Location: Room 210, Hynes

Malignant Hyperthermia training often focuses on the perioperative team. However, many off-site locations are lacking in preparedness when it comes to Malignant Hyperthermia, but still have the trigger agents being utilized in each of these non-OR areas. Anesthetists should be prepared to conduct an educational needs assessment and provide the necessary training to expect and manage the unexpected crisis, such as Malignant Hyperthermia.
