Heatstroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are usually dangerous, especially if the sun is too hot, and they can directly harm your health in a short period of time.
Heat stroke can kill or cause damage to the brain and other internal organs. Although heat stroke mainly affects people over 50, it also affects healthy young athletes.
Heat stroke often occurs as a development of milder heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat syncope (syncope) and heat exhaustion, but it can strike even if you don’t have previous signs of heat stroke.
Stroke results from prolonged exposure to high temperatures – usually in combination with dehydration – that leads to failure of the body’s temperature control system. The medical definition of heatstroke is a core body temperature of more than 104 degrees Fahrenheit, with complications involving the central nervous system. Occur after exposure to high temperatures, other common symptoms include nausea, seizures, disorientation, disorientation, and sometimes loss of consciousness or coma.
