Heat Injury

Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke

Causes of heat injuries tend to result from exposure to high temperatures and/or wearing a wet suit for extended periods before and after diving in hot weather.

Though the treatment is similar for both types of thermal injury, heat stroke is potentially much more serious and often requires medical attention.
