Is eating vit e 400mg everyday after dinner good? Does it effects kidneys and liver if I am taking 1000mg daily? I take it everyday to stop morning pain due to bodybuilding and other stuff.
I have a throat infection since 3 months back and I taken even the anti biotic however there is no sign of a good result. So please I need your advice.
Heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency. If you suspect that someone has heat stroke also known as sunstroke call for medical help immediately and give first aid until paramedics arrive.
Heat stroke can kill or cause damage to the brain and other internal organs. Although heat stroke mainly affects people over age 50, it also takes a toll on healthy young athletes.
Heat stroke often occurs as a progression from milder heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat syncope (fainting), and heat exhaustion. But it can strike even if you have no previous signs of heat injury.
Heat stroke results from prolonged exposure to high temperatures -- usually in combination with dehydration which leads to failure of the body's temperature control system. The medical definition of heat stroke is a core body temperature greater than 105 degrees Fahrenheit, with complications involving the central nervous system that occur after exposure to high temperatures. Other common symptoms include nausea, seizures, confusion, disorientation, and sometimes loss of consciousness or coma.
Do following if you are the attendant or want to help
Fan air over the patient while wetting his or her skin with water from a sponge or garden hose.See that water is not hot as in hot season the tap water also is quite hot.
Apply ice packs to the patient's armpits, groin, neck, and back. Because these areas are rich with blood vessels close to the skin, cooling them may reduce body temperature.
Immerse the patient in a shower or tub of cool water or an ice bath.
Shift the patient to nearby medical centre instead of travelling for a longer centre as the treatment should start at earliest.
