How long do the effects last?

Written by : DoctorNDTV Team

People with heatstroke may need to be admitted in a hospital. Depending on the general health and age, the effects can last up to a day or two.

Prevention of heatstroke

  • Take time to get used to a new climate before being very active or staying in the sun.
  • Limit exposure to the hot sun, and wear a broad rimmed hat if working in intense sun.
  • Wear light-colored, loose-fitting clothing in hot weather.
  • Avoid strenuous activity in hot or humid weather.
  • Drink extra fluids when sweating, even in absence of thirst.
