Avoid Sun Stroke
Posted in 2015

Sun stroke or heat stroke is the most serious form of heat injury and is considered a medical emergency. If you suspect that someone has heat stroke 
Heat stroke can kill or cause damage to the brain and other internal organs. Although heat stroke mainly affects people over age 50, it also takes a toll on healthy young athletes.

Heat stroke often occurs as a progression from milder heat-related illnesses such as heat cramps, heat syncope (fainting), and heat exhaustion. But it can strike even if you have no previous signs of heat injury.

Risk Factors for Heat Stroke

Heat stroke is most likely to affect older people who live in apartments or homes lacking air conditioning or good airflow. Other high-risk groups include people of any age who don't drink enough water, have chronic diseases, or who drink excessive amounts of alcohol.
Heat stroke is strongly related to the heat index, which is a measurement of how hot you feel when the effects of relative humidity and air temperature are combined. A relative humidity of 60% or more hampers sweat evaporation, which hinders your body's ability to cool itself.
The risk of heat-related illness dramatically increases when the heat index climbs to 90 degrees or more. So it's important -- especially during heat waves -- to pay attention to the reported heat index, and also to remember that exposure to full sunshine can increase the reported heat index by 15 degrees.

My advise
1....   The hallmark symptom of heat stroke is a core body temperature above 104 degrees Fahrenheit. But fainting may be the first sign.
Other symptoms may include:

  • Throbbing headache
  • Dizziness and light-headedness
  • Lack of sweating despite the heat
  • Red, hot, and dry skin
  • Muscle weakness or cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Rapid heartbeat, which may be either strong or weak
  • Rapid, shallow breathing
  • Behavioral changes such as confusion, disorientation, or staggering
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness

2...  Close your windows with curtains, doors.....
3...  Drink sufficient water
4..   Avoid spicy and oily foods
5...  Eat the fruits which will cool the body and supplies needed nutrients...  example:  watermelon 
6...  Keep small piece of Onion in your pocket and carry water battle, Whenever you feel giddiness crush the onion keeping in your curchief or piece of cloth and pour some water and smell it.
you will not get Sun stroke.
7....       Stay out of sun light between 9 AM to 6 PM
8...       Avoid going to hottest places
