Hyperthermia, skeletal muscle rigidity, rhabdomyolysis, acidosis and multiple system insufficiency characterize malignant hyperthermia. Anaesthetic malignant hyperthermia follows halogenated volatile agents and/or depolarizing muscle relaxants utilization. Diagnosis is based on in vitro muscle contracture in response to halothane and/or caffeine exposure… CONTINUE READING
