What Is Hyperthermia?Hyperthermia is a heat-related illness. It results from exposure to extreme heat, during which time the body is unable to cool itself, leading to a rapid rise in internal temperature. We remain cool if sweat evaporates steadily, but if high humidity levels slow down that process, we retain more heat than healthy. Quick treatment of these illnesses and instant access to fluids can cool the core body temperature down to healthy levels and prevent a fatal outcome.
What Is Heat Exhaustion?Exposure to extreme heat can cause health concerns that worsen pre-existing conditions such as heart and respiratory disease. Heatstroke/exhaustion are the most common and serious. Common symptoms include:
- Muscle cramps
