Abstract

This study has revealed that in some hospitals in Taiwan intraoperatively (anesthetic) monitoring is inadequate and there is no stockpile of dantrolene for immediate treatment of MH. We recommend that appropriate anesthetic monitoring equipment should be strictly applied and a stock of initial dose of dantrolene (6 vials) should be kept, which are necessary for early diagnosis and treatment of MH.
