Malignant Hyperthermia (MH) is a life-threatening skeletal muscle disorder that presents as a hypermetabolic response to several inhaled anesthetics and to the depolarizing muscle relaxant succinylcholine. It is extremely important for certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA) to understand the pathophysiology, clinical symptoms, and treatment plan of MH due to their vital role in managing these patients in the operating room.
