I'm sorry, the EMT field needs to step up their technology. "Pack his groin with cold packs...." Come on man.....Most guys would rather die than wake up with ice on their crotch...... You need to use a Mister Cooler that will spray near freezing atomized water over the heat stroke/exhausted individual, rapidly dropping their core temperature.

This was a pointless video, as it ONLY deals with people who are unconscious. Never even mentions what to have them drink.

minimize weight loss and prevent heat stroke easily when your out in the heat by hydrating regularly including water. (yes it causes weight gain). it amazes me medical professionals lack common sense in treating exhaustion.you can see excersizing the more weight you loose in one sitting the more thirsty and tired you get. get to a comfortably cool area, stay dry, hydrate and eat a meal as long as your bloodpressures normal. sitting in a cool area will normalize bloodpressure if its high along with mouthwashing and brushing your teeth regularly. stick to fluids when out in the heat will avoid nasea. eat when bloodpressure and bodytemsp are normal or low.food + excersize will raise bloodpressure and bodytemps. a comfortably cool shower may also help after hydrating and eating to reduce heat stroke symptoms.

if a patient is severly exhausted water may not be enough to give them energy as it lacks nutritional content, if bloodpressure is normal or low salt, caffine may be needed along with some food in a cool comfortable area. cheers.

Johnny Lamadd
dehydration is not caused by lack of water. laying someone down lowers bloodressure wich can be bad if its low and cause more exhaustion symptoms. prevent heat stroke easily by monitoring your weight for weight loss, weightloss causes dehydration symptoms not lack of water. move patient to a comfortably cool area and keep them dry and have them hydrate and eat idealy

I had heat exhaustion last night after walking 7 miles in 90º+ temps. I was puking my guts out and couldn't cool off. I thought for sure I wasn't going to make it.
