Did You Know?

Heatstroke: danger signs

Heatstroke is life-threatening if the victim’s condition is not stabilized. If the body is unable to handle the stress from the heat, different organ systems can shut down and cause the victim to enter a shock-like state. Often times, the body’s natural mechanisms to release heat such as sweating and temperature control stop working. If a person has been out in the sun or in the heat and has symptoms of high fever (40 C/104 F) and changes in level of consciousness, bring them immediately to the hospital.
