Drs warns about heat stroke

In a survey conducted from March 1 to April 4, it was found that 21.9% of the 682 participants frequently experienced headaches, while 13.6% reported constipation, and 12.7% suffered from cramps in their legs and abdomen during the summer. The survey also revealed that 52.8% of respondents had moderate concerns about health problems arising from the heat, with 19.8% expressing a high level of concern.

The Meteorological Department has issued warnings for 15 provinces, including Bangkok, due to a red-level heat index expected until April 27, posing a significant health risk. Heatstroke, a severe consequence of high temperatures, manifests as the body’s core temperature surpassing 40 degrees Celsius and can lead to symptoms like skin redness, rapid pulse, headache, dizziness, vomiting, unconsciousness, and in extreme cases, death.

To manage heatstroke, individuals are advised to apply ice or a cooling cloth to areas like the neck, armpits, and groin to lower body temperature before seeking medical attention at a hospital.
