Question by Wendy G: WHY can you only give someone 4 ounces of water ever 15 minutes who has suffered from heat stroke?
In my Red Cross Book it states that you can only give 4 ounces of liquid every 15 minutes to someone who has suffered from heat stroke. Does anyone know why? I understand all of the other treatments and steps necessary to cool the body down I just want to know why only a small amount of liquid in a segmented time.
Answer by Jimmi
The body is in a state of shock, and giving to much water can cause vomiting , hence more dehydration
