We all like summer time, hot days, going to the beach, swimming and having a vacation. But we should know some risks that we take when we stay out in the heat. When your body loses more fluid than you drink, dehydration can install. Too much sweat is the most common reason for it.
A nonactive person should drink from 8 to 10 glasses of water each day but the athletes and the ones who are exposed to high temperatures are supposed to drink much more to avoid dehydration. When we are losing a lot of water through different circumstances, our body can suffer dangerous complications. Dehydration can be either mild or severe.
The easy one can usually be treated at home, but the severe dehydration must be addressed in a hospital.
There are a lot of symptoms of dehydration and we should be careful with them. Some signs of the mild one include: dry mouth, thirst, constipation, sleepiness, dry skin, dizziness, headache.But the severe one has more concerning ones: dark urine, lack of sweat production, fever, rapid breathing and heart rate, low blood pressure. If you see somebody or you are experiencing some of these symptoms, then you should treat them as soon as possible.One of the rehydration methods is to drinking but if people suffer from vomit or diarrhea it cannot be possible so that’s why its best to get an IV. Here are some situations when you must contact a medical professional: the person has a high fever, if they suffer seizures or confusion, if you notice signs of a heart attack or whether the individual loses consciousness.
It's recommended to help people who are in this situation to get their fluids in the following ways: ingest small amounts of water,suck on ice cubes or on popsicles made from juices,try to keep the person as cooler as you can( use some fans or air conditioner, place a wet towel close to that person, remove any warm clothes). You need to avoid excessive cold because it can cause shivering and that may be less helpful and get the symptoms become worse. If you must go out in the heat, take extra water with you and try to stay as much as you can away from exercising. Also you need not use alcohol because it will cause water loss; wear some light clothes and avoid the dark ones(it is known that dark attracts heat) and find some air conditioner or cooler areas and try to rest there from once in a while. If you notice some dehydration signs and you do something about it soon, then you have all the chances to recover fast. Luckily, it's pretty easy to realize when something bad happens, dues to the fact that our bodies tell us when we are thirsty and sick, so that we can increase the fluids.
