    I had an exciting beginning to my night shift. A patient came in with a sliced open radial artery as soon as I stepped into the door. Immediately after, one of the nurses said there's a patient coming in with a 104 degree temperature (in the setting of heat stroke).

    So, we got ice packs, fan, and cooling spray. Afterwards, we approached the workup and management of heat stroke much differently than what I was expecting.

    Today, I'll be going over exactly what should be done here.

    Just as a quick recap, there are two types: exertional and non-exertional heat stroke. If you found this helpful, share this with a friend!
