Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The recent death of a famous football player raised public awareness of the fatal nature of heat stroke, which is actually the third leading cause of death among American athletes. We present a typical case of heat stroke to illustrate its clinical manifestation and recovery process; risk factors, treatment options, and the importance of prevention are also discussed. Although heat stroke is not a common admission diagnosis for inpatient rehabilitation, physiatrists need to be aware of its pathophysiology, rehabilitation management, and prevention.
