Abstract
Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a pharamacogenetic disorder of skeletal muscle cells. At risk patients (MHS) would show potentially fatal hypermetabolic reaction in response to volatile anesthetic, and/or succinylcholine. This update explores the epidemiology of MH, discusses the role of calcium and intracellular proteins involved in the MH crisis, explains clinical characteristics based on recent literature, and describes the latest findings in genetic, and physiologic diagnostic testing of this disorder. In addition, this update will explore other related myopathies, such as central core disease, and an anesthetic approach for these patients are discussed in details. The author will share her latest research with regards to clinical epidemiology, as well as genetics of MH.
