tion or even coma, the experts noted.

To stay cool and avoid these heat-related illnesses, the NIA researchers cautioned the elderly to pay attention to air pollution alerts. Anyone without fans or air conditioners, they added, should go to public places with air conditioning, such as shopping malls, movie theaters or libraries.

If, however, it is suspected that someone is suffering from a heat-related illness, the NIA advised people to take the following steps:

  • Call 911 immediately.
  • Move them into air conditioning or another cool place.
  • Urge them to lie down and rest.
  • Remove or loosen tight-fitting or heavy clothing.
  • Encourage them to drink water or juices if they are able to drink, but avoid alcohol and caffeine.
  • Apply cold water or cold compresses to their skin.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides more tips on how to prevent heat-related illness.
