Heat Illness (Definition)

Heat illness is a spectrum of disorder due to envoirenmental heat exposure.It can include heat syncope, heat cramps and heat exaustion more severe conditions are heat stroke, inwhich body temp goes over 105 degree f.Or 40.6 degreec due to envorenmental heat exposure and lac of thermo regulation.This is different than fever where there is physiological increase in ...Read more

What leads to serious hyperthermia?

What leads to serious hyperthermia?

Hyperthermia: high body temp can occur with infections, particularly in children. This can induce seizure. Extreme exertion in a warm or hot environment also can result in hyperthermia. Soldiers have and are experiencing this trouble. Athletes also experience this trouble in late summer. Construction workers and field workers are at risk also in warm seasons. ...Read more

How does a person get hyperthermia?

How does a person get hyperthermia?

Body overheat: Hyperthermia is often a result of body generating too much heat (i.e. Exercising/working too hard) and its failure to evaporate the heat quickly, and/or because of excessive ambient temperature. Sweating is a way to get rid of heat, but dehydration prevents sweating thus increases risk of hyperthermia. So, keep well hydrated, keep cool, minimize extrenuous activities in high heat. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the definition or description of: Hyperthermia?

Fever: Normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees. Temperatures below that would be called hypothermia, and temperatures greater than that hyperthermia. Low grade temperatures are not always a concern, but temperatures greater than 101.5 are usually considered to warrant investigation. ...Read more

I received a clinical injection of promethazinehcl which caused chemical hyperthermia. How do I get a diagonisis for chemical hyperthermia?

I received a clinical injection of promethazinehcl which caused chemical hyperthermia. How do I get a diagonisis for chemical hyperthermia?

Malignant hypertherm: Certain individuals have a genetic abnormality that causes them to develop high body temperature, rigid muscles, rapid heart rate, and high blood pressure when exposed to certain medications. This condition can be life threatening and certain kinds of medications should be avoided. If you have surgery, let your anesthesiologist know about this issue. A muscle biopsy can be used to diagnose this. ...Read more

What happens with malignant hyperthermia?

What happens with malignant hyperthermia?

Genetic: Mh is caused by a muscle abnormality from genetic mutation. When exposed to trigger medications like anesthetics, calcium is released and the muscles become rigid as they break down. There is a rapid rise in body temperature. It is a life threatening complication for anesthesiologists but is treatable if recognized. ...Read more

Differentiate between fever and hyperthermia?

Set point difference: Fever is due to an increase in the temperature regulatory set-point. This can be from many things, usually infection, but can be medications, cancer, (the list is large). Hyperthermia occurs when the body produces or absorbs more heat than it can dissipate. The set point is the same, the body just can't get the temperature down to the set point. Again many causes, heat stroke most common. ...Read more

How to tell if I have malignant hyperthermia?

How to tell if I have malignant hyperthermia?

Genetic testing: Malignant hyperthermia is a rare disease that has been only described in patients who received either a muscle relaxant (succinylcholine) or inhalational agents such as sevoflourane or both. The website www.Mhaus.Org is dedicated to diagnosis and treatment of mh. In short, in patients who receive certain anesthetics, they can have a near lethal or lethal reaction to those drugs. ...Read more

I think I may have malignant hyperthermia. What would that mean?

MH: Mh (malignant hyperthermia) is genetically transmitted and there are multiple risk factors and associations with other diseases. It is impossible to discuss all the details in this short space. How you know you have mh? Did, during prior surgeries any anesthesiologist pointed this to you? Is there any family member with past history of mh? Mh can be avoided using total intravenous anesthetics. ...Read more

If maligant hyperthermia occurred with excersie, what symptoms would you get?

Death: It does not happen. Mh can be thought of as a super allergic reaction. Calcium channels are activated in muscles. Super severe muscle damage from extreme exercise (rhabdomyolysis) could i guess potentially trigger it. I would not worry about it. If you've ever worked out so hard you threw up take that and then keep exercising for another couple hours it might get dangerous. I wouldn't worry. ...Read more

Can you explain these terms pyrexia hyperpyrexia hyperthermia?

What exactly is post operative hyperthermia?

Not sure...: What you mean. Hyperthermia means a fever or elevated body temperature, and post operative means after surgery. One rare condition seen is malignant hyperthermia during a general anesthesia in surgery. Not sure about "post operative hyperthermia" other than a fever after surgery. ...Read more

What is malignant hyperthermia?

MH- temp, HR, etc: Mh is an inherited disease that is typically uncovered after the affected person gets anesthesia for surgery. Symptoms include muscle rigidity, fast, irregular heart rate, rapid rise in body temperature to 104f or higher. Mh can lead to muscle breakdown, kidney failure and death. There may be a family history of mh or unexplained death during anesthesia. Mh differs from hyperthermia (heat stroke). ...Read more

What is malignant hyperthermia ?

Anesthetic reaction: Malignant hyperthermia is a serious, possibly life threatening reaction to certain anesthetic agents including succinylcholine and inhaled anesthetic gases. This condition is often inherited, and involves a mutation of a gene in muscles involved in calcium release. When exposed to triggering agents, the muscles undergo excessive metabolism, leading to muscle breakdown and heat, which cause death. ...Read more
