MH Lecture at PGA, NYC, Tues Dec 16
I’ll be lecturing on MH at the PGA in NYC this Tuesday morning at 9 AM in a panel called “Recent Advances Affecting Your Practice”. The title of my talk is “Malignant Hyperthermia: Hot Off the Press!” Get it? It is scheduled to take place in the North Broadway Ballroom on the 6th Floor of the Marriott Marquis. I’ll be highlighting some recent changes in the way we diagnose and manage MH, including use of charcoal filters, and use of the new dantrolene preparation, Ryanodex. I will go over the types of patients that really need a non-triggering technique, and I’ll also discuss some recent changes to the MHAUS website, where we will be omitting recommendations for treatment of myoglobinuria, and the story behind our removal of the recommendation to avoid calcium channel blockers when also administering dantrolene. If you are there, make sure to stop and say hi.
