Understand Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is the most severe type of heat-related sickness, which occurs when the body overheats and loses its ability to control temperature. It usually occurs when people are exposed to high temperatures for an extended period of time, particularly during physical activity. There are two primary types of heat stroke:

1. Exertional Heat Stroke: Caused by strenuous physical exercise in hot temperatures.

2. Non-exertional (classic) Heat Stroke: Caused by extended exposure to high temperatures; commonly affects older adults, young children, and people with chronic conditions.

  • Altered mental state (confusion, agitation, and seizures)
  • Hot, dry skin.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Rapid respiration and heartbeat
  • Headache
  • Muscle cramps or weakness.

Age, chronic illnesses, certain drugs, environmental conditions, and excessive physical activity in hot temperatures are also risk factors.

Prevention and Treatment

To prevent heat stroke:

  • Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids, particularly water.
  • Wear light, loose-fitting clothing.
  • Avoid intense activity during high heat hours (10 a.m.– 4 p.m.).
  • Use fans and air conditioning to keep your living area cool.
  • Take frequent pauses when working or exercising outside.
