Malignant Hyperthermia is not a current problem in surgery or anesthesia if the medical staff is using Sevoflurane anesthesia and/or Organon 9426 (Rocuronium) to conduct the medical procedure. We evaluated Sevoflurane anesthesia in 10 highly MH susceptible pigs in 1984. Sevoflurane was on the market in 1992. The elapsed years have shown a decrease in MH cases to Zero during past years.

We only Know of one case in South Carolina in the recent time period, but the anesthesiolgist did not record sufficient data to clearly identify it as MH.
