Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a rare occurrence, but nursing and medical staff must recognize and initiate treatment of a MH crisis immediately. The need was identified to develop an ongoing learning opportunity and competency evaluation of critical skills needed in a MH crisis. Knowledge of the the recognized MH guidelines decreases the risks of MH mortality. The project goal was to provide and offer increased MH disease knowledge, practice-based learning, treatment modalities, and critical skill performance improvement. Utilizing a Medical Advanced Skill and Simulation Education Center, our team of a simulation nurse, hospital education coordinator, and periopative unit educators established a MH learning event. We staged a simulation scenario and training activity for perioperative staff and physicans. Our MH policy was revised and our cart contents reorganized to reflect current AORN and Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States (MHAUS) guidelines. We developed and assigned computer based self learning modules for nursing staff to complete prior to the simulation lab experience. Medical and nursing staff participated in the activity. Participants were able to demonstrate recognition and treatment of MH, knowledge of proper Dantrolene Sodium mixing/usage, and management of MH susceptibleclients. Teamwork, communication skills, professionalism, knowledge of the disease process, and post procedural care were also demonstrated and discussed. MH training in the simulation lab is now required for new staff during orientation and is available to all staff for review as needed.
