Malignant Hyperthermia


We would like to thank Dr. Sheila Riazi, an anesthesiologist in Toronto, a member of the advisory council of the Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States (MHAUS), and a member of the RYR-1 Foundation Scientific Advisory Board, for interviewing with Nicole Wallace, Program Director of the RYR-1 Foundation. Dr. Riazi provided insight on the questions and concerns many members of the RYR-1 community have expressed in regard to malignant hyperthermia. (PLEASE NOTE: The views expressed in this video are that of Dr. Sheila Riazi and are not necessarily those of the RYR-1 Foundation. For medical advice, it is suggested that you consult with your physician).
