Cerebral congestion from lying with the head exposed to the direcr rays of the sun, especially when asleep, it is the best remedy here, superior to either Glon., or Bell. But Glon. and Bell. are preferable in sunstroke, from exposure under ordinary conditions. Acon. may further be indicated in sunstroke, when the intense heat has had a paralyzing effect on the circulation. At first the heart works harder. It then begins to lose its force and beats from 120 to 130 beats/min. Amyl Nitrite causes similar picture. The face is flushed, eyes protruding, roaring in the ears, vaso-motor paralysis of the heart, secondary to reduced pressure in the capillaries.
