Morning Checkup: Heat Exhaustion

Posted: Updated:

This time of year, heat exhaustion can be a major problem.

Internal medicine resident Dr. Eunice Jacob talked about it during Samaritan Medical Center's Morning Checkup segment on 7 News This Morning.

You can watch her interview in the video.

Some of the symptoms include nausea, light-headedness, dizziness, palpitations, and profuse sweating.

If you experience symptoms, try to cool off and drink plenty of water. If you don't feel better, seek medical attention.

You can avoid heat exhaustion by also drinking a lot of water and avoid going outside during the hottest part of the day.
