How Often Do You Have a Patient That Has Malignant Hyperthermia?
I was doing some research on deaths while having a breast augmentation surgery done since it's the procedure i'll be getting soon. In 2008, a 18 year old died bc of MH (malignant hyperthermia). How often does a PS come across these patients, and if it is suspected during the surgery how quickly does the PS have to react. I understand that it's rare, but now I'm terrified. How do you know if you have it?The operating surgeon was a BOARD CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON! anesthesiologist was performing.
