    Which of the following is not part of first aid for heat exhaustion?

    • A.

      Remove clothes

    • B.

      Remain in face up position

    • C.

      Rehydrate

    • D.

      Reduce body temperature

    Correct Answer
    B. Remain in face up position
    Explanation
    Remaining in a face-up position is not part of first aid for heat exhaustion because it does not help in treating the condition. Heat exhaustion is a heat-related illness that occurs when the body overheats and cannot cool down properly. The recommended first aid for heat exhaustion includes removing excess clothing to aid in cooling, rehydrating the body to replace lost fluids, and reducing the body temperature by moving to a cooler environment, applying cool cloths, or using fans. Remaining in a face-up position does not directly address any of these actions and therefore is not part of the first aid treatment for heat exhaustion.

      Heat Stroke

    • B.

      Heat Cramp

    • C.

      Heat Exhaustion

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Heat Cramp
    Explanation
    Heat cramp is the correct answer because although it can be painful and uncomfortable, it is not typically life-threatening. Heat cramps are muscle spasms that occur due to dehydration and electrolyte imbalances, usually as a result of excessive sweating in hot conditions. While they can be a sign of heat-related illness, they can usually be treated by rehydrating and replenishing electrolytes. Heat stroke and heat exhaustion, on the other hand, are both potentially life-threatening conditions that require immediate medical attention. Heat stroke is a severe form of heat illness that can cause organ damage and even death, while heat exhaustion can progress to heat stroke if not treated promptly.
