The Physical Effects of Heat Stroke - A TED-Ed Lesson

As I was doing some landscape work in my yard today there was n doubt that summer is here. The sun felt hot and even a breeze didn't cool me down much as I moved piles of dirt in my yard. (If you're curious, I am building terraces for planting). I was not in danger of heat stroke today, but the experience did remind me of a TED-Ed lesson on the topic.

What Happens When You Get Heat Stroke? is a TED-Ed lesson that explains the difference between exertional and classical heat stroke. The lesson also explains the symptoms and treatment for heat stroke. The video is embedded below. The full lesson is available here.
