Heat Exhaustion

Heat Exhaustion is heat related condition characterized by rapid heart beat and heavy sweating, a result of the body having been exposed to very high temperatures, particularly when combined with strenuous physical activity and high humidity. It is one of the three heat-related syndromes, the other two being heat cramps and heatstroke.

The most common symptoms include confusion, dizziness, fainting, muscle cramps, nausea, pale skin, dark colored urine that are as a result of dehydration, pale skin and fatigue. Besides hot weather and strenuous physical activity, it can also be caused by alcohol use, which hinders your body's ability to regulate heat. Dehydration and overdressing are the other causes.

In most cases heat exhaustion can be treated by resting in a cool place, drinking cool fluids, washing or applying cold water on the skin and loosening of clothing. If these treatment measures fail to work within thirty minutes, professional medical attention should be sought because it might progress to become heatstroke.

Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: Cooling the body as consistently and easily as you can is the key along with hydration.  Remembering that putting a cool breeze across the body with mild sweating is the natural form of cooling down.  Water along with alkalization is the most effective way to bring the body back to homeostasis.
