In brief: MH- temp, HR, etc

Mh is an inherited disease that is typically uncovered after the affected person gets anesthesia for surgery.
Symptoms include muscle rigidity, fast, irregular heart rate, rapid rise in body temperature to 104f or higher. Mh can lead to muscle breakdown, kidney failure and death. There may be a family history of mh or unexplained death during anesthesia. Mh differs from hyperthermia (heat stroke).
