My points about heatstroke still stand - it's good information to have regardless of where someone reads it - it is immaterial whether this patient succumbed to it or not. Being prepared and knowing what to do at the time, even when stressed are paramount.Jim_H wrote:Just to be fair to the victim and the source, the cause was not determined, though due to temperatures it is assumed to be heat stroke. The victim was not experiencing heat stroke for 2 hours, he was pulse-less for 2 hours, which is radically different. Without details, there is a chance something else was at play here. Having a member of his party reach the ranger station, suggests that the victim may have had something else going on.
