  • Bio:

    Dr. Candace Baranieski competed a Bachelor of Science in nursing from University of Victoria before finishing medical school and ultimately a residency training program in anesthesia from University of Calgary. She has been working at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital in Cranbrook BC for the past 7 years and has been the head of the anesthesia department for the past 3. In her short medical career, she has had more hands-on experience treating malignant hyperthermia then many anesthesiologists will have in their entire career. She is a mother of two young boys, owner and sole practitioner of a cosmetic and therapeutic botox clinic, works their family’s hobby farm and when not at work, she enjoys horseback riding/roping, camping, and watching her sons learn to dirt bike and BMX.

  • Topic: Is it hot in here or is it just me!
  • Presentation Synopsis:

    Malignant hyperthermia is a rare, anesthesia specific occurrence. However, knowing what to look for and how to treat malignant hyperthermia will not only save a life but also decrease the end organ dysfunction that makes this pathologic process so life changing.
