While football players who wear body-covering uniforms/equipment and practice in the hottest temperatures are especially prone to dehydration and heat stroke, all athletes are at risk in very high temperatures. Young athletes, in particular, are at higher risk for developing heat-related illness than adults because they absorb heat faster than adults, don't sweat as much and often don't "want" to drink fluids during exercise.Do your best to avoid heat illness by following these tips from the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine :Alert your coach or athletic trainer anytime you don’t feel well.Allow for acclimatization (adaptation) to hot, humid conditions. Gradually increase workout intensity and duration over a 10 to 14 day period. This helps train your body to drink more, increase blood volume and sweat better.Wear loose-fitting, light-colored clothing to help promote heat loss.Save strenuous exercise for early morning or late evening, not during the heat of the day. If this can’t be avoided, modify workout intensity and increase the number and length of rest breaks.

Until the ambulance arrives, cool the person off as best you can. If they can walk and it’s not far, get them into air-conditioning. Otherwise, have them lie down in the shade. Take off all but their underclothes. Spray or bathe them with cool water and fan them. If the person is unconscious, place them on their side so their tongue won’t impede their airway.

it is a very severe disease and you should better care about your health. the risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more. so it's important - especially during heat waves -- to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that exposure to full sunshine can increase the reported heat index by 15 degrees. infants and children up to age 4, and adults over age 65, are particularly vulnerable because they adjust to heat more slowly than other people. that is everything what i may tell you about it.

The primary treatment for heat exhaustion is to rest in a shady spot or, better, an air-conditioned room, and to drink cool (not icy) fluids. You can lower core body temperature by immersing yourself in cold water or spraying yourself with cold water and fanning. Water is usually enough to reverse dehydration, but you can also drink a sports drink that contains electrolytes.
