Spokesman of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Dr Wasim Khawaja said children, elderly, sick including those with heart disease or high blood pressure and obese persons, who are more vulnerable to heat-related illnesses, should pay special attention.
Ziyad Mahfoud, Associate Professor of Healthcare Policy and Research, and student Rana Abualsaud, showed that emergency room visits in California for heat-related illness like heat exhaustion and heatstroke rose by 35 percent over a decade.
Thus, excluded were studies on diagnoses or conditions that did not examine heat-related illness as a diagnosis or did not have ED visits or costs as an outcome measure.
Heat stroke is the most severe form of heat-related illness and can be life-threatening.
This study demonstrates that workers wearing normal clothing are at risk for heat-related illness when Heat Index is >85[degrees]F (29.4[degrees]C).
Continued exposure to hot temperatures can cause dehydration and result in heat-related illnesses ranging in severity from heat rash to potentially fatal heat stroke.
Emergency calls increased by 20% as the mean daily maximum temperature increased 1[degrees]C in Toronto, Canada in 2005.[12] In Adelaide, Australia, maximum temperatures exceeded 35[degrees]C for 3 days; the number of emergency transportation incidents increased by 4%.[13] In Sydney, Australia, in 2011, emergency calls increased 14% during a heat wave.[14] In Japan, there have also been studies of the relationship between emergency transportation for heat-related diseases and the climate.[15],[16],[17],[18] However, few nationwide investigations of emergency transportation linked to heat-related illness have been carried out in Japan.
Wearable devices have also been explored to monitor solitary workers and to detect the onset of heat-related illness. Researchers in the Department of Biological Systems Engineering at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) have explored these topics.
While not specifically a heat-related illness, exercise-associated hyponatraemia (EAH) often occurs in the setting of prolonged effort in hot conditions.
