Heat Stroke


Heat causes harm by overloading the body’s heat removal system.  When heat gain becomes greater than heat removal, the body’s core temperature rises, causing cramps, exhaustion and even heat stroke or death.  Heat stroke occurs when the body’s core temperature reaches 104 degrees fahrenheit and death from heat is expected when core temperature reaches 107 degrees.  The very young and the very old, the homeless, and those with obesity, heart diesease or poor circulation conditions are at especially high-risk for heat-related health issues.
