Medical IDs, bracelets, and jewelry help identify malignant hyperthermia in medical emergencies
The sudden unexpected death of a healthy individual undergoing minor surgery is a tragedy almost beyond comprehension in this day of modern medical miracles. Yet this still happens to patients susceptible to malignant hyperthermia (MH). Even when treated properly, the syndrome known as the MH crisis can cause death. Survivors might be left with brain damage, failed kidneys, muscle damage or impaired function of other major organs.
Proper identification of MH can reduce the risk of death or injury during medical procedures. MedicAlert Foundation offers memberships that connect you, and by extension your providing responder or physician, access to an emergency support network that provides MH treatment information during your time of need.
Once you are a registered MedicAlert Member, you'll have access to our catalog of medical IDs, bracelets, and jewelery. Due to your condition, your medical ID will always be engraved with the full term "Malignant Hyperthermia" and MedicAlert's 24/7 Emergency Response phone number. If you have any other medical conditions, MedicAlert agents will work with you to engrave them using the remaining available space on your medical ID.
