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
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
No one simple test: Malignant hyperthermia is a rare life-threatening condtion often triggered by exposure to certain volatile anesthetic gases and succinylcholine (anesthesia uses this during surgery). The metabolism of the skeletal muscle goes into "overdrive", and it is this oxidative process that overwhelms the body's ability to supply oxygen, remove c02. The result is poor regulation of body temperature. ...Read more
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
Malignant hyperthermia is an inherited disease triggered by certain medications used in anesthesia that can lead to a life-threatening crisis during or shortly after surgery. It is fairly rare, but potentially life-threatening if unrecognized and untreated. The malignant hyperthermia association of the United States is an excellent ...Read more
