In an area where temperatures tend to rise, especially during the summer months, our health can be endangered. Research has shown that even in temperatures above 35 degrees we have to be careful.
People living in the region are more likely than others to cope with rising temperatures because they adapt to climatic conditions and are able to control the heat of their bodies through sweating. However, the body can be affected by heat-related illnesses when using the contraindications.
Fluctuations in the temperature of the atmosphere is one of the main factors affecting the effectiveness of sweating, and other factors include:
- Humidity: The higher the humidity in the air the less the ability to absorb moisture from the body.
- Level of air movement (indoors), or wind speed (outdoor).
- The nature of the clothes we wear.
- Age and physical fitness.
The negative effects of the sun strike
The exposure of the body to severe heat can cause exhaustion, which can lead to dizziness, nausea, extreme sweating, a sharp rise in body temperature, and a so-called sunstroke (where the body's high temperature is associated with accelerated heartbeat, headache, colds and fever, Dry skin or excessive sweating). While the symptoms of these conditions can be easily alleviated, a sun stroke can be fatal, unless the condition is treated. Older people, children, and pregnant women are the most vulnerable to sunburn, as are those with chronic diseases.
If the body temperature reaches 39 to 40 degrees Celsius, then the feeling of tiredness begins. As temperatures reach 40 to 41 degrees Celsius, exhaustion is likely to occur as a result of heat rise, and with temperatures exceeding 41 degrees Celsius, the risk is on the body.
At this stage, the body is no longer able to sweat, as the flow of blood to the skin stops, making you feel cold and chills. In the absence of immediate medical attention, vital organs can suffer permanent damage, even death.
Dr. Fiona Rini of Valiant Clinic offers some tips to stay refreshed during the hot summer months:
- Avoid getting out of the house if the temperature is 50 degrees Celsius.
- If you have to leave, avoid this before 3 hours and after 3 hours of the afternoon.
- Always put the solar condenser at 30+.
- Wear light-colored clothing, wide, and allow movement of air.
- Stay in the shade whenever you can.
- Drink more water.
- Get plenty of rest and sleep.
Avoid drinks containing caffeine, alcohol, or high sugar.
- Perform periodic checkups to make sure you do not experience symptoms of sunburn.
- It is essential that the human body maintain its temperature at 37 ° C, and that the optimum air temperature is between 18 and 24 ° C; the higher the rates, the higher the risk.
Interestingly, one's productivity is associated with air temperature. Studies have shown that desktop productivity is at its best in an ambient temperature of between 22 and 25 ° C, and that error rates increase when the temperature rises or falls below that rate.
So, keep your body moist, refreshed and healthy this summer.
Volatility in air temperature is one of the main factors affecting the effectiveness of sweating.
