The Malignant Hyperthermia Centre of South Africa was founded primarily to help and support MHS patients and Health Care Providers confronted with known or unexpected MH cases. As MH is the most common cause of death under general anaesthetics in otherwise healthy patients, the MHCSA is about patient safety first. The MHCSA primary focus is to diagnose MHS families and to give information and support to patients, family members, doctors and nurses treating these cases. The MHCSA strives for zero deaths from MH.
