According to a 2015 article in The Journal of Applied Physiology, EHS ranks as the third leading cause of sudden death in high school athletes. EHS can occur in otherwise healthy individuals and is different from classic heatstroke, which usually affects those who are very young, elderly or have pre-existing medical conditions. more
