2. Heatstroke

The rise in ambient temperature, especially during the summer months, will prompt a rise in heatstroke, a life-threatening condition caused by the body’s inability to thermoregulate. There are two types of heatstroke: exertional and classic. Exertional heatstroke happens through strenuous work in the heat, while classic heatstroke involves exposure to high environmental heat, regardless of activities.
