An Extremely Hot Weather…

The temperature now is changing. There are times it is cold or extremely hot. We need to stay hydrated and wear comfortable clothing.

One of the most common causes of heat intolerance is medication. Allergy, blood pressure, and decongestant medications are among the most common. Allergy medications can inhibit your body’s ability to cool itself by preventing sweating.

Did you know that at least 23 countries have recorded maximum temperatures of 50C (122F) or above. Currently, the highest officially registered temperature is 56.7C (134F), recorded in California’s Death Valley back in 1913.

Here are the ways to help  prevent heat exhaustion or heatstroke:

  1. Drink plenty of cold drinks, especially when exercising.
  2. Take cool baths or showers.
  3. Wear light-coloured, loose clothing.
  4. Sprinkle water over skin or clothes.
  5. Avoid the sun between 11am and 3pm.
  6. Avoid excess alcohol.
  7. Avoid extreme exercise.

If you don’t feel better after 30 minutes, it is suggested you contact your doctor to avoid heat stroke.

Drinking enough fluids is one of the most important things you can do to prevent heat illness. Water is generally sufficient for hydration. Being hydrated when you start work makes it easier to stay hydrated throughout the day.
