Stabilization - Circulation
A child with exertional heat stroke may require 60 mL/kg or more of normal saline.
For children receiving treatment for heat stroke in the hospital, we suggest evaporative cooling rather than cold-water immersion. Evaporative cooling is preferred for hospital treatment of heat stroke in children because it does not interfere with efforts to maintain monitoring and ongoing resuscitation in unstable patients. Cold-water immersion is associated with significant discomfort, shivering, agitation, and combativeness; and is not clearly more efficacious for rapid cooling in the pediatric population. When evaporative cooling is not available, cold immersion is suggested.
