As summer weather heats up, it is important to recognize symptoms of heat stroke.
Normally, you regulate your body temperature by sweating. But in some cases, the body’s temperature-control system is overtaxed and your temperature rises too quickly.
Very high body temperature can cause damage to the brain and to other organs. People at highest risk of heat-related illness include: infants and children up to 4 years old, people over 65, those who are overweight and those on certain medications.
The CDC says symptoms of heat stroke include:
- Body temperature above 103 degrees F.
- Red, hot and dry skin, and little or no sweating.
- Rapid, strong pulse.
- Throbbing headache.
- Loss of consciousness.
