Idiopathic explosive malignant hyperthermia, which occurs after anesthesia is given, is a syndrome of increasing prevalence. It is a separate entity from the "postoperative heatstroke" reported in days prior to temperature and humidity control of operating rooms. Reviews of 40 cases from the literature and the authors' own experience reveal a 73% mortality in an otherwise healthy and young ([unk] 21 years) age group. The only reasonable explanation of the etiology appears to be an uncoupling of… Expand
Malignant hyperpyrexia during anesthesia.
TLDR
If a patient develops muscular rigidity, exceedingly hard muscular fasciculations, or trismus following intravenous administration of succinylcholine, the operative procedure should be postponed unless it is an emergency. Expand

TLDR
Because of the high mortality and the relatively recent recognition given to this entity, there have been only three other reports of malignant hyperpyrexia occurring more than once in a Datient. Expand
Malignant Hyperthermia of Anesthesia
Summary Malignant hyperthermia of anesthesia generally occurs in otherwise healthy subjects and carries a high mortality. It is characterized by rapid elevation in body temperature, muscularExpand
Anaesthetic-induced malignant hyperpyrexia and a method for its prediction.
TLDR
The clinical syndrome of anaesthetic-triggered malignant hyperpyrexia occurring in pigs is described, and Halothane, chloroform and suxamethonium have been identified as triggering agents. Expand
Elevated Serum‐Creatine Phosphokinase Activity in a Family With Malignant Hyperpyrexia
TLDR
Most of the anesthetic agents currently used have been implicated in the pathogenesis of malignant hyperpyrexia, with the possible exception of regional nerve blocks, Innovar,” and balanced anesthesia. Expand
Malignant hyperthermia during anesthesia and surgery.
TLDR
This syndrome occurs during general anesthesia and surgery and consists of a marked increase in oxygen consumption, prolonged generalized muscular rigidity, metabolic acidosis, hyperpotassemia, myoglobinemia, and temperature of 104 to 112 F. Expand
MALIGNANT HYPERTHERMIA: A STATISTICAL REVIEW
MALIGNANT HYPERTHERMIA, a condition characterized by fever and often skeletal muscle rigidity during general anaesthesia, has been reported many times in recent publications. 1-64 The first recordedExpand
Malignant hyperthermia associated with enflurane anesthesia.
TLDR
Enflurane should not be used in patients with a family history of this rare but often lethal disorder and should be added to the list of those anesthetic agents that are associated with this condition. Expand
HYPERRIGIDITY AND HYPERTHERMIA ASSOCIATED WITH ANESTHESIA
TLDR
An attempt at a synopsis of all available material appears to be worthwhile, because sufficient information to permit summarization was available for only 39 patients to whom 42 anesthetics were 6-18 Cardiac arrest and death occurred in 25 of the 39 patients. Expand

HYPERTHERMIA DURING ANESTHESIA.
TLDR
Prevention must include adequate evaluation and treatment of preoperative temperature elevations and hypermetabolic states, and includes rapid cooling, rehydration, and correction of the electrolyte and acid-base abnormalities. Expand
Temperature changes during anesthesia and operations.
TLDR
It is shown that changes in body temperature occur during surgical operations with the patient under general anesthesia and in the immediate postoperative period, and hyperpyrexia during anesthesia to high ambient temperature and humidity frequently observed in operating rooms before the advent of air-conditioning.

It has been suggested that liver cells in addition to the cells of the central nervous system are particularly susceptible to damage during high fever, which cannot be met by the cardiorespiratory transport system. Expand

TLDR
In shock state associated with a reduced or maintained blood flow, an important proportion of muscle lactate release is regulated by a "2 receptor stimulation and not secondary to a reduced oxygen availability", demonstrating that lactate production during shock states is related, at least in part, to increased NaK-ATPase activity under "2 stimulation.
