This case concerns a young, healthy male health club member who was seriously injured in the sauna after a workout. The deceased was an avid exerciser and regularly attended the health club in question. After a high-intensity workout, the deceased decided to enter the sauna, which was not his usual routine. Because the club member visited the health club at an off-peak hour, he was in the sauna for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes before he was found unconscious by a member of the club’s janitorial staff. When the emergency medical technicians arrived, they placed the club member’s body temperature in excess of 108 degrees. The club member was taken to the hospital and it was determined that he suffered a heat stroke as well as burns over 60% of his body. The man remains permanently disabled from critical brain damage. An expert in health club management was sought to discuss safety standards for monitoring recreational sauna use.
