Heat Exhaustion

 

Heat Exhaustion is a serious state of heat illness. It is caused by low levels of body fluid and salts resulting from exposure to intense heat or the inability to adjust to heat. Heat exhaustion may or may not include collapse with or without consciousness. Symptoms include excessive sweating, cold clammy skin, normal or slightly elevated body temperature, paleness, dizziness, weak and rapid pulse, shallow breathing, nausea and headache.

Treatment:

  • Move the victim to a cool place
  • Keep the victim lying down with legs straight and elevated 8-12 inches
  • Cool the victim by applying cold packs or wet towels or cloths
  • Fan the victim
  • Give the victim cold water if he or she is fully conscious
