Heatstroke is one of the most usual diseases of the body temperature; the number of people who often get heatstroke includes the following:

1. Elderly people

2. Athletes participate in lasting sports, especially in hot weather

3. Patients with cardiovascular disease

4. High ambient temperature (in a car at summer, for example)

The clinical manifestations of heatstroke have the following aspects:

The general treatment of heat shock is the following aspects:

1. Respiratory tract: Endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation when consciousness is lost or convulsed

2. Breath: 100% pure oxygen

3. Circulation: Frequent low blood volume and low blood pressure, rapid liquid recovery. Cardiac inhibition can be combined with positive muscle medicine

4. Laboratory examination: Blood gas, blood glucose, blood routine examination, electrolyte, liver and kidney function

5. Emergency physical cooling

6. Monitoring: Use the high precision and reliability of the disposable temperature probe to continuously monitor the temperature
