＜＜Emergency strategies at site＞＞
1) Move to a cool place
Please move to the well-ventilated shade or indoor with air-conditioning and take a rest.
2) Take off the clothes and cool the body
Take off sufferer’s clothes and let the body temperature decrease. Loosen belts, ties and underwear to increase breathability. Cool the body as quickly as possible to lower the body temperature. Cool the skin of inguinal part such as the neck and underarms with cold PET bottle or water. It is also effective to cool with a electric fan or a round fan.
… The place where the tops of your legs meet the front of your body.
3) Supply salt and water
Please let the sufferer take a drink. It is even better to choose oral supplements or sports supplement drinks that can supply not only water but also salt which is lost by perspiration. If the sufferer is unconscious or has nausea, it is dangerous to take water from the mouth because the moisture may enter the respiratory tract.
4) Transport to a medical institution
If the sufferer cannot refill the water themselves, it is necessary to take a drip, so it is best to transport to a medical institution. When transporting them to a medical institution, if possible, let somebody who understands the situation attend and tell their symptoms to a doctor.
