Carts, Treatment, Malignant Hyperthermia
Definition : Carts designed for organized storage, transport, and facilitation of devices, supplies, and drugs needed to treat rapid rise in body temperature, usually as a consequence of general anesthesia (i.e., malignant hyperthermia). These carts typically include a working surface at the top of the cart, large wheels (e.g., 4 inch/10cm), and a closed stainless steel multiple drawer shelf or shelf/drawer cabinet-like structure. Hyperthermia carts may also include a small refrigerator, intravenous poles, ice packs, blood gas syringes, cold irrigation and intravenous solutions, and other medications.
