Re: Rhabdo... 4 days after Rhabdo. URGENT

If they really wanted to promote rhabdo awareness (again, as opposed to marketing the danger factor) they could find a way.

Untreated compartment syndrome can lead to rhabdo, so either way a trip to the ER is in order.

I think this idea would be a win for CFHQ, but wouldn't do anything to prevent most exercise induced rhabdo, and be irrelevant for rhabdo prevention efforts (which don't really exist, anyway for good reason.)
