Tips on Avoiding and Treating Heatstroke

Heatstroke often occurs when the body heat accumulated at physical exercises cannot be taken away via perspiration. The symptoms mainly include headaches, dizziness, irritation, strong impulses, noisy breaths, high body temperatures ( possibly above
40°C ), and dry red skin. If not timely cured, the patient will soon fall into unconsciousness, and in severe cases, accidents may happen.

As a result, before intense physical activities, mountain climbers must take some proper medicines with them, such as rheocamphoradin, refreshing ointment, and Jintan. In addition, cool drinks and sunstroke prevention equipment like sunglasses and sun hats are also suggested.

If anyone faints, immediately move him to an airy shade. Soak his clothes in cold water and wrap them around his body to keep him wet. Or cool him down to below 38°C by fanning and sponge him with wet towels.

Should he be conscious, let him sit down, head and shoulders supported, for a rest. Put the unconscious patient in a horizontal position.

If the patient’s body temperature drops after the above treatments, cover him with dry clothes and let him rest. Otherwise, repeat the above process and take him to hospital at once.
