Western Treatment

1. Harbinger of heat stroke in patients with mild heat stroke should immediately leave the high-temperature operating environment, to a cool quiet place to rest, add cool salty drink, can be gradually restored. Mild heat stroke while respiratory and circulatory failure tendencies should be given intravenous glucose saline drip, if necessary, can be breathing and circulation stimulant.

2. Severe heat stroke must be urgently rescued. Principle of treatment is too high a body temperature rapidly reducing them. Correcting water, electrolyte and acid-base disorders and active prevention and treatment of shock, brain edema. There are two specific methods of cooling:

Patients were placed in the physical cooling at room temperature (25 ℃) in a quiet sick room. In the head, armpits and groin, etc. placed on ice, using cold water, ice water or alcohol, brush, and hair with the fan to the patient. When necessary, patients can be outside the body except the head immersed in 4 ℃ in a water bath, cool limbs to patients in order to prevent the peripheral blood circulation stasis. In the physical cooling initially, as the skin by the cold can cause the skin to stimulate blood vessel contraction and muscle tremors, but affect the promotion of body heat and even heat, so that the temperature increases. Therefore, at present the majority advocate the use of drugs and physical co-cooling method.

Drug cooling the cooling of drugs currently used are mainly chlorpromazine, and its role has the following aspects: the Ministry under the control of hypothalamic thermoregulation center; expansion of peripheral blood vessels, speed up the heat, relax muscles, reduce muscle tremors, to prevent the body heat too much; reduce the cell oxygen consumption, making the body better hypoxia tolerance against the role of histamine to prevent shock.

Aspirin and other drugs are available together with the use of chlorpromazine.

In the above-mentioned cooling process, the need to strengthen care, pay close attention to body temperature, blood pressure and heart conditions. Once the rectal temperature dropped to around 38 ℃, it should immediately stop cooling, in order to avoid the risk of hypothermia and exhaustion.

3. Complication prevention of cardiovascular disease are the elderly and should not be too rapid intravenous rehydration; a tendency to heart failure are advised to apply as early as possible rapid digitalis preparations; have acute renal insufficiency, we must strictly limit the water and sodium intake, particular attention to the concentration of potassium; a suitably large number of jaundice were vitamin B and C; coma in patients prone to aspiration pneumonia or combined with other secondary infections, may be appropriate to use antibiotics as a precaution.

In short, heat stroke can be prevented, as long as we do a good job protection, can prevent injuries.
