Exclamation Extreme Heat: A Prevention Guide

Drink Plenty of Fluids
During hot weather you will need to increase your fluid intake, regardless of your activity level. Don't wait until you're thirsty to drink. During heavy exercise in a hot environment, drink two to four glasses (16-32 ounces) of cool fluids each hour.

Don't drink liquids that contain alcohol, or large amounts of sugar—these actually cause you to lose more body fluid. Also avoid very cold drinks, because they can cause stomach cramps.

Replace Salt and Minerals
Heavy sweating removes salt and minerals from the body. These are necessary for your body and must be replaced. If you must exercise, drink two to four glasses of cool, non-alcoholic fluids each hour. A sports beverage can replace the salt and minerals you lose in sweat.

Pace Yourself
If you are not accustomed to working or exercising in a hot environment, start slowly and pick up the pace gradually. If exertion in the heat makes your heart pound and leaves you gasping for breath, STOP all activity. Get into a cool area or at least into the shade, and rest, especially if you become lightheaded, confused, weak, or faint.

Use a Buddy System
When out in the heat, monitor the condition of your friends and have someone do the same for you. Heat-induced illness can cause a person to become confused or lose consciousness.

Recognizing Heat Exhaustion
Warning signs of heat exhaustion include the following:

•Heavy sweating
•Muscle cramps
•Nausea or vomiting

very true

I will add that if you feel cold and it's 100 outside, you may be hyperthermic...confirmed when the vomit comes

also, the best way to cool down is to have a cool shower

get your body up to about 105 and things start going very wrong
