Heat stroke is a serious condition that can result in seizures, organ failure, and even death. Knowing the signs and symptoms of heat-related illness can keep yourself and your friends safe. Before a heat stroke occurs, you are likely to experience heat exhaustion. Both conditions occur when the body overheats. Lifehacker.com shares the signs and symptoms of both conditions and how to treat them. Heat exhaustion occurs when your core body temperature is elevated, but not enough to involve your brain. If you or a friend shows any signs of dizziness, nausea and vomiting, heavy sweating, or cold, pale, and clammy skin start cooling yourself down right away. If you begin to have confusion or irritability, trouble walking or reddened skin, with or without sweating call 911 immediately and cool the person by pouring cold water on them or dousing them with a cold hose.
