Online reporting of malignant hyperthermia (MH) events


The system allows entering anonymized key clinical data of MH episodes in a structured way. The benefits are:

  1. Reporting anaesthesiologists are supported to refer suspected MH patients with all relevant clinical information to the MH diagnostic laboratory of their choice. This will enable feedback following review of the case by MH experts and advice on the options for follow-up diagnostic tests;
  2. The data will populate a database that can be interrogated to address queries about the incidence, causes and outcomes of suspected MH events.
