What parents should know about youth football and heat strokes

Good Morning America—July 27, 2018

ABC’s Good Morning America reported on the incidence of heat stroke in high school football athletes and the importance of taking preventative measures.

HSS primary care sports medicine physician Brett G. Toresdahl, MD, explained that "often times heat illness isn’t diagnosed correctly because [the athlete] might think that they have an injury or a concussion and feel confused."

According to the segment, heat stroke is preventable if the symptoms are recognized and treated within the first five to ten minutes.
