MODELS OF HEAT INJURY: The pathology of heat stroke is not completely understood, and although heat stroke is triggered by hyperthermia, there is evidence that secondary endotoxemia triggers a systemic inflammatory response, coagulopathy, and multiorgan failure. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke occur when the body’s thermoregulatory responses are impaired or overwhelmed and are no longer capable of maintaining homeostasis. (...) Classic heat injury occurs during periods of high environmental heat stress. (...) Heat emergencies comprise a range of disorders from minor (heat edema, prickly heat, heat cramps, and heat exhaustion) to major (heat stroke).
