Heat Stroke – What To Look Out For

Heat in South Louisiana in the summertime is nothing new. Yet, every year we have to report of friends and neighbors being hospitalized or killed because of the heat. Would you know the signs of heat exhaustion? Would you know what to do if you suspected someone was suffering from heat stroke?

 

Prevention might be the best medicine in the case of extreme heat. If you can avoid the outdoors during the heat of the day then you are ahead of the game. If you can avoid doing strenuous activities such as lawn work, sports or laying asphalt you will definitely be ahead of the game.

However just sitting in the heat for prolonged periods of time can be an issue too. So those weekend trips to the ball fields, fishing holes and outside flea markets can be dicey if you aren’t drinking your water.

Don’t forget to check on your pets during periods of extreme heat. Make sure they have fresh cool water to drink and a shady place to relax especially during the hottest part of the day.
