SYMPTOMS OF HEAT EXHAUSTION & HEAT STROKE


Hot weather over the next few days could have some of us concerned about heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Three Rivers Public Health Department says symptoms of heat exhaustion include feeling faint or dizzy, excessive sweating, clammy skin, nausea, a weak pulse and muscle cramps. A person suffering from heat exhaustion should be taken to a cooler area, given water and given a cool shower or cold compresses. A heat stroke includes a headache, no sweating, body temperature above 103, hot skin, nausea, rapid pulse and possibly losing consciousness. If someone is suffering a heat stroke, 911 should be called immediately and the person should be cooled down until help arrives. This information can be found on the Three Rivers Public Health Facebook Page
