What is the treatment?

Wednesday, 16 September 2009

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

Emergency medical treatment is necessary. The patient should be transferred to a hospital or medical center immediately. In the meantime, first aid is given as follows:

  • Move the person to a shady area and remove the person's clothing.
  • Cover the person with a wet sheet, which must be kept wet.
  • Fan the person with paper or an electric fan.
  • Continue giving this first aid until the temperature drops to 101 degrees F (38.5 degrees C), or until the body feels cool to the touch.
  • Sips of water, fruit juice, or a soft drink should be given if the person is conscious.
