Lok Nayak Hospital Medical Director Dr Suresh Kumar on June 19 informed that 9 patients are admitted in the hospital. Out of 9 patients, 4 patients are on ventilator support due to their critical condition and multi-organ failure due to heatstroke.

"Currently, 9 patients are admitted in LNJP hospital. Out of the 9 patients, 4 patients are on ventilator support due to their critical condition and multi-organ failure due to heatstroke. On 16th June, a patient died due to heatstroke. Timely treatment of heatstroke patients is very important else it can also lead to multi-organ failure. To prevent heatstroke, an umbrella or cloth covering on head should be used. Children and the elderly should avoid venturing outdoors in extreme heat conditions. Consumption of 4-5 litres of water a day can prevent heatstroke. Our nurses and staff are trained to identify heatstroke patients," said Dr Suresh Kumar.
