This authoritative and comprehensive 1996 publication looks in depth at a range of medical syndromes characterised by serious and unpredicted internal overheating of the body. These episodes may arise suddenly and unexpectedly in certain individuals, with life-threatening consequences, either as a result of heat stress, exceptional physical exertion or in response to certain common anaesthetics and some drugs, including ecstasy. The chapters focus on the full range of these syndromes, their metabolic and physiological basis, the important pre-disposing factors for the prediction of those at risk, and the medical management of these conditions. The volume includes important contributions from authors of international repute and incorporates a wealth of information from the Leeds malignant hyperthermia investigation unit. This compilation will be of interest to those wanting to understand these disorders.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Review of the hardback: '... a useful source of reference for malignant hyperthermia'. M. C. M. Bricknell, Journal of the Royal Army Medical Corps
"The book should be of value to health professionals, especially anesthetists, and those involved in sports medicine, both amateur and professional. Coaches who help train athletes will also benefit, as measures to improve performance may be precipitating factors of lethal hyperthermia." H.M.C. Heick, MD, FRCPC, Annales CRMCC
