Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a potentially fatal, inherited disorder usually associated with the administration of certain general anesthetics and/or the drug succinylcholine. The disorder is due to an acceleration of metabolism in skeletal muscle.

 

I AM MH SUSCEPTIBLE

 

The signs of MH include muscle rigidity, rapid heart rate, high body temperature, muscle breakdown and increased acid content. Without proper and prompt treatment with dantrolene, mortality is extremely high.

 

The Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States (MHAUS) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The mission of MHAUS is to promote optimum care and scientific understanding of MH and related disorders.
