Malignant Hyperthermia
Hi Doc
My 16 year old son has Malignant Hyperthermia (discovered during emergency appendicitis) however, he now wear a medic alert bracelet and I'm particularly forceful at informing all and sundry at hospitals, theatres, boarding school staff etc. I was enquiring if there is an MH Association in South Africa. I can find plenty info on international websites, but was looking for something closer to home to register him with.
Tks

Hallo CSB
See this fact sheet : http://www.mdsa.org.za/fact_FS14.htm
I think this is the nearest to an association in SA you will get.
This must have been a frightening experience for you!
