How can Heat Stroke be treated?
This condition is an emergency. Rapid cooling of the body to a temperature of 1020F is required.
The patient is given ice water baths so as to bring down the body temperature. The patient's clothes have to be loosened so as to allow active air circulation. The body and the limbs have to be massaged in order to improve the blood circulation within the body.
Drugs to treat epileptic fits are administered, if the need arises.
Shock is treated by supplying the body with sufficient fluids and by administering drugs, which increases the efficiency of the heart.
