Define malignant hyperthermia (MH) 2. Identify recommended MH treatmentstrategy 3. Summarize the role of a pharmacist in MHtreatment 4. Memorize MH hotline phone numberIncidence and Mortality I do not have a vested interest in or affiliationwith any corporate organization offeringfinancial support or grant monies for thiscontinuing education activity, or any affiliationwith an organization whose philosophy couldpotentially bias my presentationDefinition Rare but lethal pharmacogenetic conditiontriggered by volatile anesthetics andsuccinylcholine that results in ahypermetabolic state. Results in hypercarbia, hyperkalemia, andmyoglobinuria that leads vital organ damage. Terminology Malignant HyperthermiaSusceptiblePhysiology of Muscle Occurs approximately in 1 in 5,000 – 10,000children and 1 in 50, 000 adult anesthesias– Historical mortality rate: 80%– Current mortality rate: 10 % Approach every patient as possibly beingMHS.1
1/20/2015Mitigating Components Triggering Agents– Inhalation anesthetics Halothane, isoflurane,enflurane, sevoflurane,desflurane– Succinylcholine– Temperature– Stress Genetic Factors:– De novo– Autosomal dominantinheritance Results in 50% chanceof passing it to offspring Mutation Factors:– Mutations encoding thegenes for RYR1 or DHPreceptorsTesting Methods In vitro contracture test (IVCT)– Caffeine Halothane Contracture Test (CHCT) Genetic Testing– Alternative methodPresentation of Early Signs/Symptoms Onset of Presentation:– Anytime during anesthesia and post‐operatively– Fulminant or indolent Muscle Rigidity– Masseter muscle rigidity– Generalized rigidity Hypercarbia– Rise in end‐expired carbon dioxide concentration Sinus Tachycardia Tachypnea and CyanosisPresentation of Late Signs/Symptoms Fever and Sweating– Temperatures can be up to 113 F Myoglobinuria and cola colored urine Hyperkalemia– Cardiac Arrhythmias (V‐tach or V‐fib) Mixed respiratory and metabolic acidosis Excessive BleedingLaboratory ValuesDifferential Diagnosis Primary:– Hyperkalemic cardiac arrest in muscular dystrophy patients– Poor ventilation– Rhabdomyolysis– Neuromalignant Syndrome Exact same presentation– rigidity, hyperthermia, acidosis, rhabdomyolysis– Drugs of abuseSecondary:– Sepsis– Thyroid Storm– Pheochromocytoma– Iatrogenic overheating– Transfusion reaction from blood product2
1/20/2015Therapy Goals Treatment must be emergent.– Administer once a diagnosis of MH is reasonable.Acute MH Crisis Management 1. Stop the trigger agent 2. Purge the anesthesia machine with 100% O2 at high rates 3. Alert the team and others to help 4. Administer dantrolene Goals:– 1. Hyperventilate/Manage Hypercarbia– 2. Administer Dantolene– 3. Treat Hyperkalemia– 4. Cooling to core temperature of 38 CMH Cart Content Dantrolene– 36 vials Sterile Water– Room temperature or35‐ 40 C– Vials v. bags debateBicarbonate 8.4 %Dextrose 50 %Calcium Chloride 10 %Regular InsulinLidocaine 2 % orAmiodarone Refrigerated saline Goal 2 : Initiate Dantrolene Hydantoin derivative developed as a muscle relaxant in 1973– Mechanism of action: binds to the ryanodine receptor to deter the release ofcalcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Utilization of dantrolene in malignant hyperthermiadiscovered in 1975– Dr. Keith Ellis teamed with South African anesthesiologistGaisford Harrison– Only available in PO formulation IV formulation approved in 1979 5. Place activated charcoal in inspiratory and expiratory portsof machine 6. Place a foley and gain additional access 7. Cool the patient to 38 C 8. Blood samples.Goal 1 : Managing Hypercarbia Hypercarbia concerns:– Increase minute ventilation or increase tidalvolume– Look for obstruction If this doesn’t solve the issue, then we havegreatly increased or suspicion of MH andshould initiate the treatment protocol.Dantrolene Monograph Indications:– Malignant Hyperthermia– Chronic Spasticity– Tetanus*– Neuroleptic malignantsyndrome*– Rhabdomyolysis*– MDMA toxicity* Pharmacokinetics:– Tmax IV : 1 minute Storage:– Room temperature– Accessible from any GA areawithin 10 minutes ADRs:– Nausea– Diarrhea– Fatigue/Malaise– Flushing– Lightheadedness– Muscle weakness – Respiratory muscleweakness Blackbox warnings:– Hepatotoxicity3

1/20/2015Post‐Op Management Continue dantrolene– Bolus dose: 1 mg/kg IV Q4‐6H for 24 – 48H– Continuous infusion: 0.1 – 0.3 mg/kg/hr Continue treatment of any symptoms or components ofMH Transfer to ICU– Ventilation care– Hemodynamic monitoring for at lest 24 hours Monitor for recrudescence– Monitor vitals and respiration continuously for 24 hoursFuture General Anesthesia Utilize non‐triggering anesthetics or local anesthetics– Local: Spinal, epidural, and nerve block agents– Lidocaine, ropivacaine, bupivacaine, etc.– Alternative agents: nitrous oxide, pentobarbital, thiopental, propofol, diazepam, etomidate,ketamine, opioids, vecuronium, cisatracurium If intubation is required:– Machine MUST be purged Change circuits Remove vaporizers Flush the machine at 10 L/min for 20 minConstant temperature and capnography monitoring Components of Success 1.

Malignant Hyperthermia Malignant hyperthermia occurs in 1 in 5,000 to 50,000 instances in which people are given anesthetic and/or muscle relaxants. Malignant hyperthermia is a severe reaction to particular drugs (particularly some anesthetic gases [halothane, sevoflurane, desflurane, isoflurane, enflurane]and muscle relaxant

MALIGNANT HYPERTHERMIA Malignant hyperthermia is a rare and serious complication of providing a general anesthetic or a potential reaction to medicines given in the rural ED. Using a case from a rural OR we will discuss management of this case and how to avoid a similar outcome in your facility. 1.
luxury week long cruise in the Pacific Ocean. You encountered a bad storm and the clipper ship limped to shore and partially sank. Only the top is still visible off the north tip of the island. You are all now stranded on an uninhabited island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The storm basically ruined most things on board, leaving very few useful items. Your task is choose the 12 most .
