We often tend to confuse sunstroke and sunstroke. While heatstroke is caused by the sun’s rays hitting the head directly, heat stroke is much more insidious and can occur suddenly when you have been doing physical exertion in a warm and humid environment.

Heatstroke occurs when the body can no longer cool down after being exposed to too high a temperature for too long. It can affect athletes who exercise in the hottest hours of the day, those who travel long distances in unventilated or air-conditioned cars, as well as older people who do not sweat enough or patients who take certain medications in the long term (beta blockers, diuretics and some antidepressants).

If there are no measures to cool you down as quickly as possible, hyperthermia will increase, with the risk of causing irreversible damage to vital organs.

Most heat strokes go away with these simple steps, but if the person is feeling unwell, they have significant signs of dehydration (dark eyes, dry tongue) or if the fever reaches 40 ° C and does not drop, get medical attention. Indeed, the great risk of hyperthermia is cardiac arrest.
