The Malignant Hyperthermia Investigation Unit is dedicated to studying and reducing complications associated with malignant hyperthermia. This is a hereditary disorder in which a person does not react appropriately to certain drugs (e.g., anesthetics) due to a genetic abnormality. Founded in 1976, the association has three main objectives: education, communication, and research. It provides financial support to current test standardization and genetic and lymphocyte research. In addition, the organization also produces educational materials of interest to the general public and medical professionals.
