What is Malignant Hyperthermia?

Posted by Tara Cohen on Dec, Mon 15, 2014

Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a life-threatening disorder affecting 1 in every 2,000 - 3,000 people. This primarily hereditary condition is considered a, "pharmacogenetic disorder of the skeletal muscle." In layman's terms, having MH means you are susceptible to having an MH crisis. According to the Malignant Hyperthermia Association of the United States, "The general signs of the MH crisis include increased heart rate, greatly increased body metabolism, muscle rigidity and/or fever that may exceed 110 degrees F along with muscle breakdown, derangements of body chemicals and increased acide content in the blood. Severe complications can include cardiac arrest, brain damage, internal bleeding or failure of other body systems. Thus, death, primarily due to a secondary cardiovascular collapse, can result."

Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Posted by Tara Cohen on Nov, Wed 19, 2014

Considering Lung Cancer is the second most common adult cancer* the odds are that most people’s lives have been touched by this horrible disease at some point. A couple of years back, I wrote about my friend, Dianne, and how she fought Lung Cancer with a strength and resolve the likes of which I may never see again. I think about Dianne often. I miss her. True, it’s different now, almost three years after her death. But still, I miss her.

Halloween Safety for Kids With Special Circumstances

Posted by Tara Cohen on Oct, Mon 20, 2014

Last Halloween was my daughter’s first big holiday since being diagnosed with a chocolate allergy. I was more than a little nervous about her school parties, expecting a call from the nurse at any moment. Thankfully, she navigated the events (with the help of her terrific teacher) without incident, and our trick-or-treating went off without a hitch as well.

Much of this is due to the fact that Julia, then 6, was already well aware of her allergy and comfortable self-advocating. She always asks whether foods have chocolate in them and takes the extra step to explain that it’s an important question, as she is allergic. Of course, that’s all well and good when a child self-advocates this way. But many children do not or cannot, which can make Halloween more than a little intimidating for their parents.
