Heat exhaustion vs Heat stroke

When to See a Healthcare Provider

If you think you might be experiencing heat exhaustion, you should stop what you are doing and rest. Move indoors or to a shady area and drink cool water or a sports drink.  

Seek medical attention for signs of heat exhaustion that do not improve within an hour of starting fluids and resting. Get immediate help if you, or someone else:

  • Cannot keep fluids down
  • Develop a fever of 103 degrees or higher
  • Have trouble speaking, standing, or walking
  • Are sweating excessively
  • Become confused or lose consciousness
