Heat emergencies and hypothermia

First aid for heatstroke

Heatstroke occurs in hot and humid conditions when the body fails to control its own temperature. It is a medical emergency.


Heatstroke is a medical emergency that occurs in hot, humid conditions. Core body temperature rises to 41 ° C .


Dehydration occurs when there is insufficient water in the body.

Hypothermia: first aid

Hypothermia, when the body's core temperature drops below 37°C, may result from prolonged exposure to cold conditions, especially in damp, wet or snowy weather.

Heat exhaustion

Despite its name, heat exhaustion is not directly related to heat and is no longer considered as the first step towards the development of heatstroke.
