The Department of Anaesthesia at CUH, incorporating Intensive Care and Pain Medicine also provides support for patients with Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) and their families, and for clinicians caring for a patient with MH.
Dr. Peter Lee, Consultant Anaesthetist, is the lead in this area.
We offer the following supports;
- The MH-relevant records of patients are maintained by the CUH Department of Anaesthesia. These include results of previous muscle biopsy and in vitro contracture testing and genetic testing.
- Advice to patients and their families with a suspected history of MH
- Advice to clinicians dealing with patients with a suspected history of MH
- Onward referral of patients for muscle biopsy and in vitro contracture testing or genetic testing, as appropriate.
