Summer is truly upon us with this lovely heatwave. Please be aware of signs of heat exhaustion which can lead to heat stroke.
Signs of heat exhaustion:
- Dark-colored urine (a sign of dehydration)
- Muscle or abdominal cramps
- Nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea
- Pale skin
- Profuse sweating
- Rapid heartbeat
- Drink plenty of fluid (avoid caffeine and alcohol).
- Remove any tight or unnecessary clothing.
- Take a cool shower, bath, or sponge bath.
- Apply other cooling measures such as fans or ice towels.
If, after 15 minutes these treatments do not help, you should go to the ER.Risk factors for heat exhaustion:
- Children under the age of 4 and adults over the age of 65. These individuals have a more difficult time adjusting to the heat.
- Individuals who have health conditions or those who are prescription medication should also avoid long periods of time outside.
