What is Rhabdomyolysis?
Rhabdomyolysis is the breakdown of skeletal muscle tissue due to trauma.
Rhabdomyolysis occurs after traumatic injuries
Rhabdomyolysis requires fluid therapy, where a saline solution and electrolytes are fed into the body via an intravenous tube. Rhabdomyolysis occurs when muscle tissue is damaged directly or when the cells are deprived of oxygen-rich blood, both of which can occur during a crush injury.
