What is Heat & H. No. 3?

This is part of a death certificate for Nelson Butler who died on 26 December 1925 in Seattle, Washington.

It's typed, so reading the writing is not a problem, but I am wondering what the test is that confirmed diagnosis (Heat & H. No. 3). I realize that this really isn't a genealogical necessity, but my curiosity is piqued.

The whole certificate appears below for anyone who needs to see the entire thing.
