Is heat stroke fatal if left untreated? How many people are brain damaged and institutionalized by it?
Yes: Heat stroke is fatal if left untreated. The 2nd part of your question is far more difficult. It depends on what geographic area and time period you're investigating. The rapidity of recognition and treatment are also key variables.
Requires hospital: Heat stroke is characterized by a high core temperature and the bodies inability to release this heat. The person will be red and dry (unable to perspire). Cooling down the person's core with IV fluid, oral fluids (if still safely able to take by mouth), and cooling the body down, often with cooling blankets is key. If a hospital is not possible, do your best to cool the torso and get fluids in.See 1 more doctor answer

As Low As 1%: Jama (1/26/11) reported a cleveland clinic study showing a stroke rate of 0.91% from 2005-2010, a steady decline from 1982 due to better preoperative assessment, anesthetic and surgical technique, and post-op care. About 60% of those strokes happened after surgery (2 days) and 40% during the operation.

No: That is completely false. You may have read that there are ultrasounds that are high frequency ultrasounds (machines, generally) that can generate heat, but those aren't the type that are used for fetal doppler. There have been a lot of studies on the safety of ultrasound in pregnancy and there's no literature or data to support any harm to the baby. Not to worry.
