- High risk of Cardiovascular Collapse/Death – likely due to adrenaline surge, heat exhaustion and injury. It can happen very suddenly.
- Keep physical restraint to a minimum – Don’t allow patient to forced face down, it’s the most likely way of killing them.
- Sedation – if you’re restraining you will almost certainly need to sedate. IV is best but if access is too risky IM will have to do.
- Aggressive management of underlying issues – esp. hyperthermia and acidosis and look out for rhabdomyolysis and DIC
