Know the Warning Signs: Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke 😩😩😩🔥🔥🔥
⚠️Dehydration is a serious medical condition. ⚠️Exercising in hot, humid weather can rapidly raise your body's core temperature, putting you at risk of heat exhaustion or heat stroke. ⚠️Heat exhaustion is a milder form of heat-related illness that can develop after several days of exposure to high temperatures, and inadequate or unbalanced replacement of fluids.
Signs of heat exhaustion include:👇👇👇
Nausea or vomiting
Cool, moist skin
The pulse rate may be slow and weak. If heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat stroke.
Heat stroke is the most serious heat-related illness. Body temperature may rise to 40degrees or higher within 10 to 15 minutes.
With heat stroke victims, look for the following symptoms:
Dry, hot skin (no sweating)
Rapid, weak pulse
A body temperature of above 40degrees
⛔⛔⛔If you see someone with any warning signs of heat stroke, call 000 immediately, then cool the victim however you can (for example, move him/her to a shady spot or an air-conditioned location, or wet his/her skin with a sponge or hose).
