    Heat stress can happen when hot, humid conditions and physical activity overcomes your body's natural cooling system. You might suffer cramps and fainting, or even serious heat exhaustion and heat stroke. Heat stroke can kill quickly. It is strongly advised that alcoholic drinks, or drinks containing caffeine (which is a diuretic promoting fluid loss) should not be consumed. The more dangerous situation of heat stroke is an advanced stage of heat illness. With heat stroke, the athlete completely loses the ability to maintain normal body temperature. The afflicted athlete will be very hot and have remarkably dry skin. He or she may experience shaking or shivering. The sufferer is confused or delirious and often unable to walk or move without assistance.

    Heat stress This heat illness reflects an inability to dissipate heat being generated within the body through evaporation of sweat on the surface. The treatment is to administer fluids and to cool the body rapidly, but gently. Ideally, the sufferer should be taken into a cool, shady area, be sponged down with cool water and be given liberal amounts of water to drink. If the condition does not settle within 30 minutes to an hour, then medical assistance, as a matter of urgency, is recommended. Intravenous fluids may be necessary. It is strongly advised that alcoholic drinks, or drinks containing caffeine (which is a diuretic promoting fluid loss) should not be consumed. The more dangerous situation of heat stroke is an advanced stage of heat illness. With heat stroke, the athlete completely loses the ability to maintain normal body temperature. The afflicted athlete will be very hot and have remarkably dry skin. He or she may experience shaking or shivering. The sufferer is confused or delirious and often unable to walk or move without assistance.
