Prevention of Heat Illness

by Gautham 15. June 2010 20:08

All heat illness may be prevented with proper planning and common sense. To minimize risk problems with heat, you should:

  • Avoid training clients in extreme heat and humidity.
  • Urge clients to wear sensible, porous, light –coloured, loose fitting clothing while exercising in the heat.
  • Train clients for competition in heat be acclimatizing them slowly, increasing the intensity and duration of exercise over eight days.
  • Help your clients avoid dehydration by urging them to drink adequate amounts of water before, during, and for 24 hours after vigorous exercise.
  • Commercially prepared electrolyte and glucose solutions are unnecessary except for long periods of exertion in the heat, as in running a marathon.
  • In fact, excessive salt intake can cause stomach cramps, weakness, and high blood pressure.
  • Use of solutions containing too much glucose can retard absorption form the gastrointestinal tract by keeping the solution in the stomach longer
  • Encourage clients to use table salt more liberally the day before prolonged exercise (eight hours or more).
  • Plenty of fluids should be consumed before the event (8 ounces/ 29.57 ml, 20 to 30 minutes ahead), in anticipation of fluid loss through sweating and breathing.
  • A hypotonic electrolyte solutions containing less than 0.9% concentration of sodium chloride (salt) should be consumed every 10 to 15 minutes during a long event.
  • A commercially made or homemade solution consisting of ¼ teaspoon of salt dissolved in a quart of water can be used. Salt tablets should be avoided.
  • Recognize the early symptoms of heat stress: dizziness, cramps, clammy skin, and extreme weakness.
  • Have your clients take more frequent rest periods and find a cool, shaded area for these breaks.
  • Encourage clients to avoid drugs (including alcohol) that may predispose them to heat injury.

Intriguing article. I am aware I’m a bit late in posting my comment though the article ended up being the idea and merely the knowledge I had been searching for. I can’t say that we agree with everything you could mentioned however it was emphatically fascinating! BTW…I found your internet site by using a Google search. I’m a frequent visitor to your blog and may return again soon.

I've learned newer and more effective things through your blog post. One more thing to I have noticed is that typically, FSBO sellers may reject you actually. Remember, they can prefer to not ever use your companies. But if you actually maintain a comfortable, professional partnership, offering aid and remaining in contact for four to five weeks, you will usually have the ability to win a business interview. From there, a listing follows. Thanks
