Body at the boiling point

Temperature of the Planet Earth. Concept of greenhouse effect.

As we prepare for summer activities, medical professionals remind everyone that too much time in the sun can hurt you. Nurse Susan Jarvis with Mercy Lebanon Emergency Department said there are certain signs that a person has been in the heat too long…

 

A person’s temperature will be 104 and above in more serious situations like a heatstroke, and they will lose consciousness.  Heatstroke is a medical emergency and you should try to get their body temperature down using water or ice packs at core areas like the armpit, and get them to the Emergency Room or call 9-1-1.
