Weather forecasters promise that August will be hot. Cooling and rain promise only after 20 numbers.

Who is in the risk area

Every year, thousands of Ukrainians receive sunshine and heat blows. First and foremost, pensioners, sick with cardiovascular diseases, plant workers and miners suffer. Being in the forty-degree heat on the street, a heat stroke can get everyone.

As the director of the Zaporizhzhya Health Center Yulia Shponko told, especially overweight people suffer from heat. Most often they also have heart problems. In the past few days, hundreds of retirees turned to doctors, all of them were unconscious in the streets and in transport.

"In a hot period, from 10 to 19 o'clock, we can not be outdoors. We see in trolley buses and trams hundreds of retirees they go to can not understand. We are constantly conducting preventive conversations, asking people not to leave the house in such a weather. And people still ride in such a heat in trolley buses, work in the country areas, then lose consciousness and call "fast", - says the doctor.

Often thermal strikes are received by employees of factories and factories. The shops are stuffy and hot, and physical work already increases the body temperature.

When it's time to call "fast"

"If a person has reddened, he is very sweaty and began to fall, at the same time, there is a noise in her ears and a headache hurts," she said, "she received a heat stroke," the physician says. Often, to bring the "patient" into a feeling, just move it to a cool place, give the water and soak the face. However, if as a result of heat stroke the temperature of the body rises to 42 degrees, it is necessary to call "fast." "Check when it is easy to call physicians when it is a thermal shock. If the skin becomes dry and the person does not sweat, then it is necessary to call" fast " Yulia Shponko.

With a sunshine, blood enters the head, dilating blood vessels. Because of this, if the vessel breaks, a disturbance of the functioning of the central nervous system may occur. "If a person has suffered a sunshine, one must necessarily call" fast ", - the doctor advises.
