Service of Care for Heat Exhaustion


Service of Care

FOR

Heat Exhaustion

 

Heat exhaustion is a major concern for YFCH.  We take, quality of life and welfare of our youth very seriously and we are leading by example and hoping that other leagues follows suit and create a service of care for their youth athletes. 

Our service of care for heat exhaustion is as follows.  In the event a player displays any combination of these symptoms, rapid breathing flushed skin, reddish cheeks, vomiting, diarrhea, no longer sweating, head ache, fainting spells, and even seizures.  Player will be taken to designated shade tent located between each set of football fields. Each tent is supplied with a fan for cooling, a dedicated cooler with over a dozen iced towels and pedialyte.  Once player arrives, volunteer will assist with removing helmet and shoulder pads and begins cooling process.

 Volunteer assists player to lay down in front of the fan and begin applying as many ice towels as it takes to cover the body and rehydrate player with pedialyte until the voluntary medical professional confirms player is no longer showing any signs of heat exhaustion.  Player will not be allowed to return to current game as a precaution.
