The University of Rhode Island says one of their student athletes has died following a workout.
The school reported that Joseph Paul Ciancola, 20, of Orange, Connecticut, died Thursday at Rhode Island Hospital after suffering an unspecified medical emergency during preseason workout with the baseball team on Monday. No cause of death has been determined as yet.
According to the school, the workout was supervised by a coach certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
A source reported to the Milford-Orange Bulletin that Ciancola was treated for malignant hyperthermia when his body temperature went up to 105.9 degrees. The Malignant Hyperthermia Association’s website states that Malignant hyperthermia “is an inherited muscle disorder triggered by certain types of anesthesia that may cause a fast-acting life-threatening crisis. The incidence of MH is low, but, if untreated, the mortality rate is high.”
The condition basically causes the body temperature to rise sharply and the muscles to contract severely when the affected person gets general anesthesia, according to the National Institutes of Health. Symptoms include bleeding, dark muscle ache or stiffness without an apparent cause, brown urine, and a rapid rise in body temperature to 105 degrees or more.
