Heatstroke

Dealing with extreme temperatures can be very difficult and dangerous. It is important that you take extra caution in making sure that you are staying healthy. When temperatures get out of control, we are more likely to get sick.

 

In Las Vegas we do not really have to worry about cold temperatures, but we do need to be careful during the summer time when temperatures get really hot. As you can see from the National Health Statistics Reports, http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nhsr/nhsr076.pdf, you can see that during 2006-2010 there were nearly 2,000 weather related deaths, 31% of which were deaths caused by heat stroke.

 

When you see statistics like these, you need to worry. If you know that you are going to be spending time outside, it is important that you stay hydrated. If you start to feel like you are over-heating, then you need to get somewhere cool so that you can cool your body down. Once your body hits a certain temperature then the damage can be very severe, in some cases resulting in death.
