Example text

R General: the patient is awake, alert, and appropriate. He is resting in bed comfortably until waves of pain cause him to double over and clutch his abdomen. r Head and neck: the patient’s mucous membranes are moist. His neck is supple without jugular venous distension or bruit. The patient’s sclerae are non-icteric. r Cardiovascular: the patient’s heart is tachycardic without murmurs, rubs, or gallops. He has 2+ distal pulses in all four extremities. r Lungs: the patient’s breath sounds are equal and lungs are clear bilaterally without wheezes, rales, or rhonchi.

Heatstroke is severe dysfunction, with temperatures greater than 40◦ C with systemic inflammation and central nervous system (CNS) involvement. r Epidemiology: exact numbers are unknown, but it is estimated that thousands of patients seek treatment each year for heat illnesses in the United States. The Centers for Disease Control report 4780 heat-related deaths over a 20-year period. The incidence is directly related to ambient temperature. Patients who are very young, very old, medically debilitated, or who are taking medications which blunt compensatory mechanisms are more susceptible to heat illnesses.

Vital signs also reveal tachypnea and increased pulse pressure. Associated disseminated intravascular coagulation may result in purpura, conjunctival hemorrhages, gastrointestinal bleeding, or hematuria. Acute renal failure may result in oliguria or anuria. Decreased muscular tone distinguishes heatstroke from malignant hyperthermia or neuroleptic malignant syndrome. r Treatment: mainstays of treatment are immediate cooling and support of end-organ oxygenation, perfusion, and function. Prehospital care includes removing the patient from the hot environment and removing excessive clothing.
