PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN IN THIS SUMMER SEASON

Sun Stroke :

Heat stroke, also known as sun stroke, is a severe heat illness, defined as hyperthermia with a body temperaturegreater than 40.6 °C (105.1 °F) because of environmental heat exposure with lack of thermoregulation. This is distinct from a fever, where there is a physiological increase in the temperature set point of the body. The term “stroke” in “heat stroke” is a misnomer in that it does not involve a blockage or hemorrhage of blood flow to the brain.

This summer, make sure to follow simple rules when you step outdoor:

  • Wear clothes which allow good ventilation make sure the fabric of the clothes is light.
  •  There are certain medications and other conditions like sleep deprivation, sun stroke history, etc. which may predispose sun stroke. It is wise to take all the factors into consideration.
  •  Always wear sunscreen and drink plenty of fluid. Always carry a drink together.

Drink Plenty of Water :

Start hydrating right away. It’s easier to maintain your fluid balance if you start out in a well-hydrated state.

Schedule regular beverage breaks and keep a water bottle handy so you can take frequent sips of water while you work or exercise.

Choose electrolyte-replacing drinks for maximum water absorption.

Drink water after you’ve finished work or an exercise session.

Snack on fresh fruits like berries, watermelon, peaches, and nectarines.

Don’t drink large amounts of plain water all at once – this can lead to hyponatremia or water-toxicity.
