The Malignant Hyperthermia Association is always working on ways to ensure better services for MH-susceptible patients. Along with our other services – drug wallet cards, warning letters, and MHS alert kits – MHAUS has partnered with the MedicAlert® Foundation to offer MH-susceptible patients medical identification products and services that alert others to your condition.
Like other rare diseases, it's critical to ensure you get the proper care for MH in an emergency. First responders or other medical personnel may be unfamiliar with the condition or treatment protocols. Having a MedicAlert ID and membership provides you with a way to communicate about MH in an emergency, and the ability to keep a detailed medical profile that is relayed to emergency personnel.
