Can MH Occur Outside Of The Operating Room?

Yes. While most cases of MH occur during general anesthesia, the one-hour period immediately following surgery (including the recovery room) is also a critical time. In addition, MH can occur if trigger anesthetics and/or succinylcholine are used in any location, such as emergency rooms, dental surgeries, surgeon’s offices or intensive care units.
