Heat Stress

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 10 May 2022

When the body comes to be dehydrated and is not able to cool itself enough to preserve a healthy and balanced temperature, heat stress occurs. When the core body temperature level climbs above 40. 5 oC and the body's internal systems begin to close down, heatstroke occurs. Normally, sweating helps to preserve a healthy and balanced body temperature by enhancing heat loss through dissipation. Many organs in the body can experience tissue damage and the body temperature level should be decreased rapidly. Most people will have extensive central nerves changes such as delirium, coma and seizures.
