15. In order to ensure consistency of management of heat disorders/injuries, the following

treatment protocol will be used by all health/medical personnel.

a. Causes of heat injuries. Heat injuries represent a continuum of states arising from an
imbalance between heat gained/produced/retained and heat lost from the body. The main
underlying factors that lead to heat injuries are:

- high environmental temperatures

- high humidity
- solar radiation
- poor conditioning
- insufficient acclimatisation
- over-exertion
- insufficient hydration.

b. Classification of heat disorders. The main heat injuries are:

Heat cramps/syncope

Muscle cramps (especially calf and abdominal muscles)

Feeling lightheaded

Heat exhaustion

Excessive sweating

Heat stroke

Mental confusion
Bizarre behavior
Loss of consciousness & coma
Core temperature of > 40 deg C

c. Treatment steps.
Reduce current heat load

Stop the exercise

Move the person to a cool, shaded area
Remove as much clothing as possible

Start cooling the person (until core temperature reaches 38.5 deg C)

Actively fan the person or turn on a fan

Apply cool or cold water using cloth over all surfaces
Ideally, provide a fine spray of water under a fan

Actively rehydrate the person

Encourage drinking of cool fluids

Establish wide bore IV + administer cooled IV Dextrose Saline

Monitor the person

Vital signs (heart rate, Blood pressure)

Core temperature

Treat collapse if necessary

Carry out CPR

Carry out emergency procedures for shock & collapse
Evacuate to hospital if patient does not respond well

B. Skin Abrasions.

Arising from crashes, these superficial injuries can be very painful and lead to long-term scarring. The preferred
treatment is as follows:
a. Clean the wound site gently with sterile solution or surgical wash
b. Apply a non-stick dressing (eg. Tulle Gras, parrifin layer, etc)
c. Apply a gauze absorption layer
d. Cover with a dressing layer (eg. tape, Op Site)
e. Review dressing daily

C. Fracture of Clavicle

This is the most common fracture arising from a fall from a bike. When assessing a cyclist who has fallen, always
examine for pain in the clavicle. If any is found, suspect and treat as for a fractured clavicle. The treatment steps are
as follows:

a. Examine site of pain on the clavicle. If this is tender and shoulder movements are painful, suspect a fractured
b. Place the affected arm and shoulder in a simple sling to immobilize the joint and bone
c. Send for X-rays to confirm the fracture
d. If fracture is shown, use a figure-of-8 bandage or an arm sling to immobilize the shoulder
e. Evacuate the patient for hospital review and care (eg. Singapore).
