Assessment

Its a short lesson but an important one! We don’t do a poorly executed assessment to cause a simple fracture to become a lifetime of renal nor hepatic dysfunction.  

Four big questions:

Do you have an allergy to methoxyflurane (Penthrox)?

Do you have any renal impairment?

Have you had an allergic reaction to general anaesthetics or have you ever had malignant hyperthermia?

Have you received treatment with methoxflurane in the past 7 days?
