You are a school nurse working in a high school clinic.  A girl from the soccer team comes to the health office during the team’s practice session complaining of nausea, headache, and muscle aches.  She is diaphoretic and her skin is flushed.  Because the temperature outside is well into the 90’s, you know you need to work quickly to complete further assessment and implement nursing interventions.


  1. What two conditions are you concerned about?  What are the warning signs of each?
  2. What nursing assessments will you make?
  3. What nursing interventions do you need to implement?
