MH action plan
Pharmacy and anaesthetic departments in every hospital should draw up an action plan to be used in an MH emergency. This action plan should include instructions for operating theatre staff on where additional dantrolene can be sourced in the event of an MH reaction.
Following use of a significant quantity of dantrolene within a hospital, the pharmacy department must arrange for urgent restocking if safety of general anaesthesia services is to be maintained. If there is any delay to restocking with dantrolene or disruption to the supply chain the pharmacy department must inform the anaesthetic department.
