2:10 *Thermometer stuck up butt* Guy opens eyes in shock
if I pass out while playing sports, by all means pour ice water on me, but put away the rectal thermometer...
Why TED-Ed get much less views than other education channel, when they provide superior animations and narration.

This is how my 2 year old brother died. My parents had left him in a hot car before I was born, which killed him.

So basically, if someone has a heat stroke, throw them into the Arctic Ocean for a couple hours.

Yea, cause i just casually carry around a rectal thermometer with me...

I had heatstroke once while hiking. I somehow managed to walk all the way back across town to home (which took more than 30 minutes but I think any damage I got was negligible) and immediately took an ice shower. I had my phone out and ready to dial 911 on the walk home. I'm damn lucky I didn't pass out in the middle of the woods. Determination is a hell of a drug. Heatstroke feels like your body is cooking from the inside, like you're just radiating heat. Also there's the throbbing headache, and sometimes your vision might go wonky. If possible, bring ice with you on long walks and keep your phone charged and with you. In an emergency, you can apply ice to the neck, armpits and groin. They're the areas with the most blood vessels... or something.
This one time a student senior on the soccer team had heat stroke. Our coach recognized this pretty quickly and had him jump into a cold shower while calling 911. What do the paramedics and hospital do? They ignore the warnings of our coach that he has heat stroke and basically say, "There's nothing wrong with him. Just let us do our job and we'll fix this when we find something out." Apparently his organs were permanently damaged and he really did have heat stroke like our coach said. Instead of trying to fix it immediately, they waited a few hours. Stuff like this makes me angry.
1:21 cmon we all know we were all waiting for him to fall off his bike
Just don't try to measure temperature yourself, if they find you unconscious with something stuck in your butt, you might send investigators on the wrong path :)

i got this during a big heat wave i was in line for a water ride and i was dehydrated hungry and extremely hot i passed out it was the scariest thing that's ever happened to me i got dizzy and no matter how hard i tried to open my eyes everything just got dark
I dealt with this a lot in the Army as a medic (even received a medal for saving two heat stroke patients and an allergic reaction patient all at the same time. I was with one other medic and a couple other soldiers.) great video on what and how to identify and treat. But it is also 100% preventable. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate, know your level of fitness and limit your exertion accordingly. Oh and Hydrate some more!!!! :-)
guy collapses... fear not! i have my rectal thermometer!

So basically you get so hot that you begin to cook.

"The most feasible and accurate way to measure tempurature is a rectal thermometer " so ,stick a thermometer up someone's butt ?
Fazeed Kotta
mum:why don't you do sport?! me:err I don't want to get heatstroke
Ms Sophia
my body overheats all the time something's wrong with my hypothalamus. it's a very scary thing. I'm always sweating out of control and everyone else seems to be fine even on a cold day

If we get injured or have a heat stroke at our school nurses are just like “GIVE HIM A WATER AND SALTINE” but I wonder what if you fracture your skull somehow at my school will they still just be like “GIVE HIM A SALTINE”
there was a girl in my school that was running in PE and apparently she just fell on the floor and died. Now everyday I think about how I'm walking over the area where a girl fell over and died
I would probably get a heat stroke if I see Scarlett Johansson in real life.
Actually no you do not want to cool quickly under any circumstances, you need to cool at a slow but steady pace and of course treat for shock
Todd Howard
I think I may have had a heat stroke. My vision got oversaturated and blurry, then it went to all yellow and I collapsed. I couldn't move and had to be carried home, and then I threw up. Was that a heat stroke?
But... but my mom always said you shouldn't jump in cold water after exercising. I heard this kid in my hometown played some soccer and then went and took a cold bath and apparently he somehow died because of this, is it possible or it's just bullshit, or maybe it's different when having an heat stroke?
somebody has a heat stroke what do you do? i would destroy the sun. wait that would kill everyone from intense freeze. i will just stick to walking past. and say i didnt see nothing if police question me. i would probably drag the body when no one was looking and then use it as a punching bag. (need to get into fight club ) what the hell was the point of this comment?

This is an excellent educational video. Should be used in all schools and sporting organisations.

I remember getting heat stroke on a coach in Belgium. I had to sit through it xD
exertional heat stroke is one of my favorite types of conditions: Where the primary symptom is also the most essential part of treatment. You get it from exerting yourself way too much, and what happens? You pass out and stop exerting yourself. Sure, you may die without help. But you would've definitely died if your body just keep on going.

Poor undyne now I know what happened :( thankfully I dumped water on her.
My beard will protect me, us men who have beards can survive anything. Right my fellow bearded men?

Cool damp rags help, and hydration helps.

So... you are saying the third highest cause of death is 100% avoidable? So like we survive the stroke and die. kek

I can die from sweating just by forcing my human beyond its limit?
Glad Ted-Ed kept the use of both metric/imperial but especially metric. Keep it up.

The body and how a heat stroke affects the body is interesting thing that I didn't know just how much of a risk it puts on the body. The body runs through a number of different methods to protect the body and keep it from shutting down. It tries to get the body to a safe state. I didnt know just what the heat stroke does to the body, it puts risk on kidneys and other organs all throughout the body, I always thought it overheated you, never knew it hurt organs and many other parts of the body. The overheated state of the body is always dangerous but never knew it could do the things that this video states.
1:11 Those chin ups almost gave me a heat stroke xD
Gabriel Aponte
This used to happen to me very often during field days, I used to drop to the ground after running because of the heat... What made me feel better was me being given a cold soda in my head and going for some shade (avoiding the sun).

RUN TOWARD SHADE Also this will not happen as often if it is winter.
Just know your body and gauge the heat within you when Over stressing yourself with activities such as Sports, gym etc: and drink plenty of water and Amino Acids with electrolytes..
3:04 Why 38.9 degrees? Still seems high considering our body temperature should be around 37. Is it that below 39 degrees, it is no longer considered high enough to cause damage?
I had mild heat stroke in Venice August 2018 it was about 36° and I had a killer migraine, and I threw up, worst 6 hours of my life

is it normal to feel some symptoms of nearly heat stroke while its cold outside but when you are wearing too warm clothes? i heave some problems with my heart and i think i dont need 40+ celsius outside to get some symptoms of overheating, sometimes i feel way too hot literally even when its cold outside
