Iatrogenic hyperthermia during cardiac magnetic resonance imaging.

We report the occurrence of accidental hyperthermia in a young child undergoing anesthesia for cardiac magnetic resonance imaging. Although the tendency during anesthesia is to develop hypothermia, the absorbed radiofrequency energy from magnetic resonance scanning is added to metabolic energy and must be balanced by appropriate heat loss to maintain normothermia. In addition to stressing the clinical importance of temperature monitoring, this report suggests that the recommended specific absorption rates to prevent excessive patient heating may need to be revised for infants and young children.
