Heatstroke is a serious condition. According to The Mayo Clinic, “Heatstroke is the most severe of the heat-related problems, often resulting from exercise or heavy work in hot environments combined with inadequate fluid intake.”

Heatstroke occurs when the body’s temperature rises above 104 degrees and due to an internal, physical reason or over working in a very hot climate, the body can’t cool itself down quickly and the victim suffers from heat exhaustion. Other signs of heatstroke are changes in mental status ranging from personality changes to confusion and coma.

If you live in a climate where it gets hot, take some precautions prior to working outside. Always have plenty of water with you; even consider drinking water prior to going out for the day just to start hydrating the body.
