Tutor description

Myasthenia Crisis is an exacerbation of Myasthenia Gravis. It is characterized by severe generalized muscle weakness and respiratory and bulbar weakness that may result in respiratory failure. Crisis may result from disease exacerbation or a specific precipitating event. The most common precipitator is infection; others include medication change, surgery, pregnancy, and high environmental temperature. Neuromuscular respiratory failure is the critical complication of crisis; respiratory muscles and bulbar weakness combine to cause respiratory compromise.
