Heat Exhaustion

Heat Exhaustion

Heat exhaustion happens when the temperature of the body rises between 98.6°F (37°C) which is normal, to 104°F (40°C). When working or playing in a hot and humid place for long periods your body loses fluids and salt through sweating. If you don’t replace these fluids, your body may overheat. This leads to heat exhaustion. If it is not treated, heat exhaustion may lead to a more serious heat stroke. Heat stroke happens when the body temperature rises above 104°F (40°C). It is when the person's cooling system stops working. The body temperature rises to the point that it can lead to brain damage. The other organs may also be harmed. Heat stroke is an emergency case.
