Services Provided

 

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.
