What is the first aid treatment for hyperthermia?
Get the person into air conditioning if possible or out of the sun and into the shade.
Spray the person with cool water, or apply cold wet cloths or ice packs to the armpits, neck, and groin. Fan air across the person to increase cooling. These methods help cool the person more quickly.
Do not give the person anything to drink if the person is not alert or is vomiting.
If the person experiences seizures, keep him or her safe from injury.
If the person vomits, turn the person on his or her side to keep the airway open.
