Health Tip: Spot the Signs of Heat Stroke

Heat stroke occurs when the body’s heat-regulating system fails to work properly due to high temperatures.

The Mayo Clinic says potential heat stroke symptoms include:

  • Having a body temperature of 104 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
  • Seeming confused, irritable or delirious.
  • Having dry, hot skin that becomes red and flushed.
  • Feeling nauseous or vomiting, and breathing very rapidly.
  • Having a throbbing headache and a rapid heart rate.
  • Having seizures.
  • Becoming comatose.
