Heat Exhaustion + Heat Stroke

Learn it here, or learn it the hard way. Heat stress has no favorites -- it strikes the healthy, the compromised, the athlete, the young, and the old.  The one thing heat stroke victims all have in common is this: not one of them thought it would happen to them. 

The fighter in all of us ignores the signs of heat stress and pushes through the discomfort. We got this. I've overheated before. I just need some water. I'll be fine. Well, here's something you may not know: Heat stroke can happen when fully hydrated!

Watch for the following signs and take immediate action to cool if they occur. 

  • Irritability
  • Brain Fog
  • Mental Confusion 
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Dizzy, Lightheadness
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Increase in symptoms from existing chronic conditions 

The Oro Sports team designs cooling solutions that can fortify human endurance while also preventing heat exhaustion -- or worse.
