Abstract
At the request of the Surgeon General Canadian Forces Medical Service, through National Defence Medical Centre, Ottawa, DCIEM constructed a prototype Malignant Hyperthermia Mattress, the design of which was based on an NDMC Anesthesia Department concept. Tests of the first prototype in simulated operating room conditions, revealed several shortcomings. In collaboration with NDMC, DCIEM redesigned and constructed a second prototype. Simulated operating room tests and preliminary evluation at NDMC have indicated that the Malignant Hyperthermia Mattress, prototype II could contribute significantly in the clinical management of Malignant Hyperthermia patients.
