MH Prep Check
(Requires at least 2 months notice for preparation and coordination)
The MH Prep Check is a nationwide Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) preparedness training coordinated by MHAUS, specifically for on-site training of healthcare professionals at hospitals, office-based surgery suites, and outpatient facilities, including: anesthesia departments, emergency rooms, medical transport teams, ob/gyn, operating rooms, pharmacy, and scanning facilities.
MH experts will give a 60 - 90 minute training session including:
- readiness walk-through of the facility
- on-site MH mock drill
- discussion of a facility-specific plan to transfer or receive an MH-susceptible patient to their ER
The MH Prep Check brings your facility an MH Expert from the elite group within MHAUS who answer emergency MH calls on a regular basis. Their personal knowledge and direction have saved hundreds of lives! They are available in this program to discuss the recognition, diagnosis, and treatment of malignant hyperthermia - the fast-acting hereditary disorder triggered by certain anesthetic agents - with the attendees on a one-on-one basis.
To prepare for the MH Prep Check training, the facility is asked to share feedback with MHAUS about their specific needs. MHAUS will give this information to the MH expert so they are able to tailor the presentation to the needs of each facility. The training will include time for questions and answers. Feedback will be requested to assure we continually improve and address points of concern.
Benefits of holding an MH Prep Check at your location:
- Assurance that participants are prepared for an unexpected case of MH and thus patients are kept safe
- Clarification of the drugs and equipment needed to address an MH event (as well as their proper use)
- Documentation for Regulatory Surveyors via a Certificate of Participation and listing on the MHAUS website’s MH Prep Report indicating your facility has taken on MH preparedness training. MHAUS has been told that all regulatory agencies use MHAUS recommendations as a barometer for MH preparedness – up to and including taking out a stopwatch to time dantrolene retrieval! Would you pass this test?
- The MH Prep Report is also a resource for MH-susceptible patients’ use when researching the best location to manage their future planned surgery. They are very interested in ensuring their medical team is ready for MH.
