A 16-year-old boy arrived at the Emergency Department (ED) after collapsing during a 3-hour practice at summer football camp. The patient had the required physical examination prior to attending the camp, and there were no concerns or physical restrictions documented. He received intravenous (IV) fluids in the ambulance, and is awake upon arrival to the ED. He complains of thirst and dizziness. He has not voided since prior to practice, has dry mucous membranes and tenting. The patient?s pulse is 136 beats per minute, and blood pressure is 88/52 mm Hg. When questioned about the situation leading to his collapse, he states he forgot his water bottle in his room, and was very hot in the required gear. He felt thirsty, but thought he might be seen as weak if he complained to the coach.
