How do I supply a surgicenter for an MH emergency?

A surgicenter in which general anesthesia with potent volatile agents is administered should be equipped to manage MH by stocking an MH cart as outlined here.  Surgicenters that propose to use succinylcholine as an emergency agent should also have dantrolene available and an appropriate MH crisis protocol in place. Timely access to blood gas and electrolyte analysis is recommended.
