Weather affects our health in many different ways. Today we’ll visit the impact high temperatures have on the human body. If you do not properly hydrate yourself or if your circulatory system is overwhelmed by the heat, you may experience heat exhaustion. This will be a warm week by June’s standards; a few days may reach or exceed 90 degrees. With all other factors being equal, the trauma caused by heat exhaustion normally increases with age. Symptoms include weakness, paleness, irregular pulse, and cold/clammy skin. Heat stroke is a severe medical emergency and can occur when the body temperature rises above 106F. Symptoms of heat stroke are hot dry skin, rapid and strong pulse, and possible unconsciousness. Seek medical assistance immediately if you encounter someone with these symptoms and move to a cooler location.
