Tips for Avoiding Heat-Related Illness

Hello Seniors, Families and Friends. We hope you are all staying in the cool and hydrated. According to a Village Medical article released on 7.10.24, below you can find information on symptoms, cures and ways to avoid this issue. Please see a copy and paste from the article.

Heat cramps, exhaustion, or stroke can occur when the body becomes overheated from high temperatures. Warning signs of heat-related illness include:

• Sweating
• Painful muscle spasms
• Weakness, dizziness or lightheadedness
• Nausea or vomiting
• Headache
• Low blood pressure

Later signs of heat stroke can be serious and may include chills, confusion, slurred speech, seizures and a body temperature above 104℉. If you experience any of these symptoms, call 911 or visit the nearest ER.

The best way to prevent heat-related illness is to stay inside in the air conditioning. If you are out playing or working in the sun, make sure to drink plenty of water. You can also cool off by spraying water or placing ice packs on the skin.
