HEAT STROKE

Assalammualaikum wbt

hai semua, nak smbg psl entry smlm..

Heat stroke is also known as sunstroke. Heat stroke is a life-threatening emergency
which requires immediate attention. It occurs mostly in the very young, or the elderly
with health problems. Working or exercising in hot weather or hot conditions without
drinking the necessary amounts of fluids is the main cause of heat stroke




Signs of a Heat Stroke
  • A high body temperature above 103°F 
  • Red, hot, and dry skin 
  • Rapidly beating pulse 
  • Throbbing headache 
  • Dizziness 
  • Nausea 
Signs of Heat Exhaustion
  • Substantial sweating 
  • Pale colored skin 
  • Muscle cramps 
  • Fatigue 
  • Faintness 
  • Dizziness 
  • Headache 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Cold and wet skin 
  • Fast and weakened pulse



High core temperatures damage the internal organs, especially the brain. The loss
of bodily fluids can also produce dangerously low blood pressure. If you suspect
someone has heat stroke, begin treating him/her immediately,
while someone else calls 9-1-1.
  • You must do everything possible to cool the heat stroke victim immediately. 
  • The best way is to remove them from the sun, immerse the body in cold water, 
  • such as a river, stream, or bathtub.
  • Otherwise, remove most of their clothes, douse them with water, and fan 
  • them vigorously.
  • Wrapping in wet sheets can help the body lose heat more quickly.
  • If the person is conscious and alert, offer the individual water or other fluids. 
  • Avoid caffeine or alcoholic drinks because they dehydrate the body. 
  • The heat stroke victim should also be put in a cool place. 
  • Lay them down and give small sips of liquid every few minutes.
  • "Sports" drinks (with no caffeine) are best, but water is often more readily available.
  • You should watch carefully for signs of deterioration, but there is no need to rush to a hospital for a normal case of heat stroke.
