First aid for heat stroke - heatstroke

Cause: Due to the high heat and humidity of the environment, the body temperature can not be normalized by the perspiration, so it rises and damages the brain cells.

Symptoms: dry and hot skin, headache, vomiting and dry mouth, less urine, shallow breathing, strong pulse, fast body temperature, and finally the patient will be faint. (At this time, the patient's blood pressure will rise sharply, because the red blood cell's oxygen function is low due to overheating, blood oxygen is insufficient but the blood volume is still enough, the body has to command blood pressure to increase blood oxygen content)

Treatment: Move the patient to a cool place, supine, and cool him down (you can take off some of the patient's clothes, wipe him with a wet towel or ice, fan cool, etc., but be careful not to let the patient cold). If the patient is awake, give him some water, but don't give hot drinks or stimulants such as coffee. At the same time, you can use Huoxiang Zhengqi water, cool oil, etc. to relieve heat.
