This lecture was developed as part of HTWB’s Pakistan Flood Response, a program which aims to support communities and clinicians in Pakistan impacted by devastating floods in 2022.
The program was launched in partnership with the National Institute of Kidney & Urological Diseases (NIKUD) Research Hospital at the University of Karachi, Pakistan. This talk educates local communities and patients about the recognition and management of conditions related to heat exposure (i.e., heat exhaustion, heat stroke) in the setting of emergent floods in resource-limited and austere environments globally.
Special thanks to our community partner, Dr. Sakina Naqvi at NIKUD Research Hospital in Karachi, Pakistan.
