The symptoms of heatstroke include extremely high body temperature, red and hot skin with no sweating, dizziness, confusion and unconsciousness. If you find someone with heatstroke symptoms, it is recommended that you try and cool the person as rapidly as possible and seek medical assistance.
Heat-related illnesses can be avoided.
One of the easiest ways to avoid heat exhaustion or heatstroke is by staying hydrated. Drinking additional water and staying away from caffeine drinks will help keep the body hydrated.
Some days, especially during the hottest part of the summer, it’s best to stay indoors more during the peak hours of the heat, which are usually in the afternoon. Monitor your local weather to keep up with the heat index, which is a combination of the temperature and humidity, providing as real-time reading of how hot it will actually feel outside.
