Prevention of sunstroke and heat stress

Heat stroke occurs when your body temperature rises rapidly and you are unable to cool down your body heat. It can become life-threatening because it causes damage to the brain and other vital organs in the body. It may occur as a result of strenuous activity in the heat or staying in a hot place for a long time.

Heat stroke may occur without any pre-existing heart disease, such as heat exhaustion. Signs and symptoms of heatstroke include:

  • A fever of 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius) or higher
  • Changes in mood or behavior, such as confusion, agitation, or slurred speech
  • Hot or dry skin, or heavy sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • skin redness
  • Pulse speed
  • rapid breathing
  • Headache
  • Fainting
  • convulsive seizures
  • trance
