Do you know what to do in case of a malignant hyperthermia crisis?
Are you sure somebody will take a detailed protocol during your actions?
MHApp does both for you:
MHApp is like an interactive MH-emercency poster. A great value in case of a real crisis but also a great teaching tool.
MHApp will guide you through a malignant hyperthermia (MH) crisis. The App includes treatment of acidosis, hyperkalemia and dosing of dantrolene.
Every action and injected dantrolene doses are recorded in a log file, which can be exported via editable email.
New: A section with information about MH, anesthesia for the known MH patients, MH-mutations and more.
This app was developed by international experts in Malignant Hyperthermia:
Dr. Henry Rosenberg (President of MHAUS)
Dr. Thierry Girard (director of the Swiss MH unit)

Used to treat case of MH
On Friday I had my first case of MH intraoperatively. This App was a lifesaver, literally. When I called the MH hotline, they informed me I had already done everything I needed to do to treat my patient. Strongly recommend you buy this app.
Crashes in multiple parts of the app and won't store the MH phone number in settings.
Nice idea. Needs work
Nice idea. Hyperlinks return error messages. Buggy. Needs work.
