Heat Exhaustion (cont.)

When to Call the Doctor
An individual should be evaluated by a doctor or other health care professional if they develop symptoms consistent with heat exhaustion. This can result in the early diagnosis and treatment of heat exhaustion, which can prevent the individual from becoming worse and potentially developing heat stroke (body temperature of 104 F [40 C] or higher).
