The victim should be moved to a cool area. The person should be bathed in cool water and wrapped in a cool wet towel. Cold compresses to the upper body, head, neck, and groin will help cool the victim. A fan may be used to aid in evaporation of the water. Immersing a victim into a bathtub of cold water is a recognized method of cooling.

B) Heatstroke is extreme hyperthermia (Very high temperature) with thermoregulatory failure. The condition is characterized by serious end-organ damage with universal involvement of the Central Nervous System.
Heat stroke, unlike heat exhaustion, strikes suddenly, with little warning. When the body's cooling system fails, the body's temperature rises fast. This creates an emergency condition.

Heat Stroke is the deadliest of all heat stress conditions. It occurs when the body's cooling mechanism has shut down after extreme loss of salt and fluids. The body temperature will rise, the victim's skin is hot, red, and dry, their pulse fast, and they may complain of headache or dizziness. They will probably be weak, confused, and upset. Later stages of heat stroke cause a loss of consciousness and may lead to convulsions. In the event of heat stroke, seek immediate medical attention. Until help arrives, try to cool the victim and offer sips of cool water if the victim is conscious. ...more
