Heat stroke is a kind of heat illness, wherein the body temperature alleviates beyond normal level due to heat exposure (lack of thermoregulation). Body looses the ability to cool itself down by sweating due to heat stroke. Getting exposed to high temperatures for a prolonged span or working under sun during summer season affects one’s body’s systems causing loss of fluids. As a consequence, the body produces more heat than its ability to release.
It is a critical condition, which requires attention to prevent the progress of heat stroke. If one experiences heat stroke, he/she does not produce enough sweat to cool down the body, which raises the body’s temperature and causes heat exhaustion. First indicators of heat stroke include thirst, headache and dizziness. These symptoms are followed by signs such as pale skin and nausea.
