Staying Cool in the Heat

It has been a very hot week in New York!  Today it is supposed to hit the 100 degree mark too!  The latest weather report  shows many states are hitting  record high temperatures this summer.  So, while we bask in the sun and enjoy the lovely days of summertime, don’t forget to stay hydrated.

All of us need to be careful in extreme heat temperatures, but keep in mind that the elderly, pregnant women, children, and pets are most susceptible to dehydration. 

Signs of dehydration are decreased physical activity, dry mouth, irritability, and fussiness.

Drink cool water regularly because dehydration can lead to heat stroke.  Heat stroke can be life threatening and requires immediate, medical attention.

Signs of heat stroke include flushed, red, dry skin, little or no sweating, dizziness, headache, fatigue and confusion.

Besides staying hydrated, other ways to keep cool are:  staying in the shade, wearing light-weight clothing and light-colored clothing, and trying to go outside in the early morning hours before the heat hits its peak.
