Heat wave, what to do and what to avoid

Heat wave, what to do and what to avoid

When the temperature of the environment exceeds the permissible limits of the human body in combination with other factors (humidity, apnea, etc.), pathological conditions of various degrees of severity are created.

Hot flashes and symptoms

The initial symptoms of those affected by the heat wave are:

-severe headaches,

-weakness,

-sense of payment,


-tendency to faint,

- drop in blood pressure,

-motion sickness,

-vomiting

Heat stroke syndrome and symptoms

Heatstroke syndrome is manifested by:

-sudden increase in body temperature (> 40.5 °C),

-red, hot and dry skin (sweating has stopped);

- dry swollen tongue,

-palpitation,

- tachypnea,

-strong thirst,

-headache,

-vomiting,

-dizziness,

- confusion,

- inability to orient and speak clearly,

-aggressive or strange behavior,

- spasms,

- loss of consciousness

First aid: How to deal with symptoms

The treatment of persons with the above symptoms should be carried out, preferably in nursing facilities, when the ambient temperature is high, but as first aid until the transfer to them, immediate measures should be taken to reduce the body temperature:

Move the person with heat stroke immediately to a cool, ventilated, shaded area, preferably with air conditioning

- took off his clothes

-apply ice packs or cold packs to the neck, armpits and groin area

-place in a bath or shower with cold water or spray with cold water

-give him small sips of fresh fluids (water or diluted fruit juice, 1 part juice to 4 parts water) etc.

Attention to vulnerable groups

Groups sensitive to high temperatures should consult their doctor about possible dosage modifications:

-old people

- babies and young children

- pregnant and lactating women

-people who are overweight or obese

-people who work or exercise vigorously in a hot environment

-people with chronic diseases (cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, lung disease, kidney disease, liver disease, mental illness, dementia, alcoholism or drug abuse, etc.)

-people with an acute illness, such as an infection with fever or gastroenteritis (diarrhea and/or vomiting)

-people who for purely medical reasons take medicine for their chronic diseases, such as diuretics, anticholinergics, psychotropic drugs, hormones (including insulin and antidiabetic tablets).

10 precautions against the heat

-Stay in air-conditioned areas.

-Dress light and comfortable in light-colored clothing made of porous material to facilitate body ventilation and sweat evaporation.

-Wear a hat made of material that allows ventilation of the head.

-Wear black or dark colored sunglasses with sun blocking lenses.

-Avoid exposure to the sun, especially for babies and the elderly.

-Avoid heavy physical work.

-Avoid long journeys in vehicles without air conditioning.

-Take several lukewarm showers during the day and apply cold compresses to the head and neck.

-Eat small, light meals with little fat, with an emphasis on fruit and vegetable intake.

-Drink plenty of fluids (water and fruit juices), especially babies and the elderly, and avoid alcohol. If sweating is profuse, it is recommended to take additional small doses of salt.

People suffering from chronic diseases should consult their treating physician, receive additional instructions depending on their condition and be instructed on possible dosage changes.

The elderly should not be left alone, but a person should be provided for daily care.

The workplace must have air conditioning or a simple fan, preferably a ceiling fan and in any case natural ventilation of the premises. The same applies to institutions that treat newborns, infants, children, the elderly and the disabled.
