Doctor gives tips on how to prevent heat-related illness

Doctor Jessica Shepherd with Baylor University Medical Center of Dallas joined Good Day Sunday to give tips on preventing heat stroke and heat exhaustion. The C.D.C. lists symptoms of a heat illness as dizziness, a rapid pulse, nausea, headache and fainting. But symptoms can vary. Those suffering from heat stroke, which can be deadly, might have a rapid but strong pulse. Those with heat exhaustion might have a rapid but weak one. Immediate remedies include moving the person to a cooler place and applying wet, cool cloths. Call 911 if there is heat stroke, vomiting or if the symptoms get worse.
