For the patient presenting with hyperthermia, traditional treatment may include external cooling to decrease temperature or pancuronium to decrease muscle hyperactivity. 4,6 Dantrolene sodium has been used to directly relax skeletal muscle rigidity by inhibiting the release of calcium ions from the sarcoplasm reticulum6 In severe hypertension, CNS stimulation should be avoided.

The reticulum, with its longitudinal and transverse meshes, is called sarcoplasm. From Wordnik.com. [IV. Myology. 2. Development of the Muscles] Reference
Schäfer has worked out the minute anatomy of muscular fiber, particularly in the wing muscles of insects, which are peculiarly adapted for this purpose on account of the large amount of interstitial sarcoplasm which separates the sarco-styles. From Wordnik.com. [IV. Myology. 2. Development of the Muscles] Reference
In a transverse section, the muscular fiber is seen to be divided into a number of areas, called the areas of Cohnheim, more or less polyhedral in shape and consisting of the transversely divided sarcostyles, surrounded by transparent sarcoplasm (Fig. 373).
