Conference paper


The Danish Malignant Hyperthermia Register (DMHR) was created in 1977 [1] with the following aims:
  • To collect information about cases of malignant hyperthermia (MH)

  • To investigate these patients and their families

  • To spread information about MH to patients, attending doctors, and dentists

  • To educate future anesthesiologists in various aspects of MH.
