A heat stroke occurs when your body overheats, often after prolonged exposure to high temperatures. Receiving treatment quickly is important, as an untreated heat stroke can cause damage to your brain, heart, kidneys and even muscles. At Urgent Care West Maui in Lahaina, Hawaii, our doctors are trained to efficiently and effectively diagnose the condition and administer treatment in order to prevent complications. They will first check for symptoms of a heat stroke, including:
- A body temperature of 104 degrees Fahrenheit or higher
- Hot, dry skin
- Nausea or vomiting

Once the condition is confirmed, the goal of heat stroke treatment is to cool the body down to a normal temperature to reduce damage to the organs. Treatment may include immersing the patient in cold water, using ice packs and cooling blankets, and providing medication to stop shivering.
