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.
Department of Radiation Oncology, Hyperthermia Unit, Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, Rotterdam, The Netherlands ABSTRACT Purpose: In this study, we investigated the differences in hyperthermia treatment (HT) quality between treatments applied with different hyperthermia systems for sub-superficial tumours in the head and neck (H&N) region.
