Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Exertion-induced heat exhaustion is a potentially lethal condition. The earliest signs include unsteady gait and confusion. Recording of rectal temperature is essential. Skin colour, blood pressure and heart rate are not reliable diagnostic signs. The mainstays of therapy are rapid rehydration and cooling. Prompt diagnosis and rapid effective therapy will minimise the risk of death.
