Heat stoke can leave severe symptoms on a patient and can stay for a while.
Heat stoke is a heat-related illness that is being triggered when the body suffers overheat as a result of dehydration. It also happens when the patient is unable to cool off in hot climatic condition.
Whenever temperature and humidity rises, heat stoke becomes imminent. The following are other factors that can present someone at high risk for developing the illness:
(HBP) High blood pressure.
- Consumption of alcoholic beverages
Certain medications such as antidepressants, antihistamines, or sleeping pills can interfere with the body’s system to cool itself.
During heat stroke, severe climatic conditions place so much stress on the body system that the body’s natural cooling mechanisms can’t carry its functions, properly. When this happens, the part of the brain that controls central temperature gets overawed. The body system starts producing more heat than it is normal for it to release.
Heat stroke symptoms include but not limited to:
- Profuse sweating
- Muscle cramps

It can lead to: Encephalopathy, Renal failure, acute respiratory distress syndrome, Intestinal ischemia and infarction, Myocardial injury, Circulatory collapse, Pancreatic injury, and Hemorrhagic complications, among others.
Duration of Heat Stroke
Depending on the medication applied or other treatment method provided, heat stroke can last few days or months before subsiding, and earlier particularly when proper cooling measures are put in place.
