108 Degrees - Critical Response
"108°: Critical Response" addresses the dangers of heat illness in high school sports. Through personal testimonies from families who have been affected by exertional heat stroke and interviews with coaches, certified athletic trainers, kinesiologists, and other medical professionals, "108°: Critical Response" looks at the seriousness of heat illness and its underlying causes, as well as how to treat and prevent exertional heat illness.
In June 2012, Arkansas adopted heat illness guidelines recommended by the Korey Stringer Institute at the University of Connecticut. For information on these guidelines, visit the Korey Stringer Institute or the Arkansas Activities Association. Additional information regarding heat illness is also available from the Kendrick Fincher Hydration for Life.
