Extreme heat can quickly overwhelm people and lead to heat-related illness, even death. 

If you aren’t feeling your best in this weather, doctors want you to take note and head inside to air conditioning. 

“It’s getting to be time where athletics are starting, young children are outside and all those things,” said Dr. Marc Sintek a Washington University cardiologist at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, “I think it’s important to recognize that heat-related illnesses are a really big problem this time of year for a lot of young people who are otherwise healthy.”
