A mattress for the treatment of malignant hyperthermia comprises a base to overlie an operating table and an inflatable wall extending around the periphery of the base. The wall includes a pair of discontinuities which permit the patient's arms to extend across the inflated wall. A sealing cuff and flap encompass the arm and seal the discontinuity to prevent egress of water from around the patient. A recess is provided in the wall adjacent the patient's head to allow the anethetist access to the patient when the wall is inflated.
