Default contradictory info in MTB2 & MTB3

MTB2 says in heat exhaustion Body temp is normal, MTB3 says it's elevated.

and it's just one of many differences

would hate to see my score suffer because of that, and like all of you I don't have time to double-check everything.

any suggestions?

P.S
will post all those differences I found during my second read

Both of them can have elevated temperatures. Uworld differentiates the two by stating that in Heat Stroke the temp will be > 105F. On the other hand, in Heat exhaustion it will be < 105F... but still elevated.
