How does it occur?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Heat stroke occurs after exposure to a hot, humid environment, usually in unacclimatised people. It usually happens after long exposure to hot temperatures. It can also be caused by working in an extremely hot environment, a high fever associated with illness, or exercising too strenuously. Overdressing, overeating, and drinking alcohol may be the other contributing factors.
