First Aid tip of the month

Heat exhaustion is one of the heat-related syndromes. These syndromes range in severity and seriousness from mild to potentially life-threatening. Other types of heat-related illnesses include heat rash, heat cramps, heat syncope and heatstroke. Heat exhaustion can occur when your body loses too much water or salt — usually as a result of excessive sweating or dehydration. It can begin suddenly or happen over time, usually after working, exercising or playing in the heat.

Heat exhaustion signs and symptoms include:

  • Cool, moist skin with goose bumps when in the heat

  • Heavy sweating

  • Faintness

  • Dizziness

  • Fatigue

  • Weak, rapid pulse

  • Low blood pressure upon standing

  • Muscle cramps

  • Nausea or vomiting

  • Headache

  • Extreme thirst

  • Mild confusion

  • Decreased urine output

Untreated, heat exhaustion can lead to heatstroke, which is a life-threatening condition.

If you suspect heat exhaustion, take these steps immediately:

  • Move the person out of the heat and into a shady or air-conditioned place.

  • Lay the person down and elevate the legs and feet slightly.

  • Remove tight or heavy clothing.

  • Have the person sip chilled water, a decaffeinated sports drink containing electrolytes or other non-alcoholic beverage without caffeine.

  • Cool the person by spraying or sponging with cool water and fanning.

  • Monitor the person carefully.

Contact a health care provider if signs or symptoms worsen or if the person doesn't improve after taking first-aid measures.

Call your local emergency number if the person's condition gets worse, especially if he or she experiences:

  • Fainting

  • Agitation

  • Confusion

  • Seizures

  • Inability to drink
