Heat Stroke: Some important precautions to avoid brain stroke in summer!


During extreme heat, the body has to work harder to maintain body temperature. This can increase blood pressure, which increases the risk of clots forming in the veins.


Extreme heat has started in many states of India. The temperature is continuously increasing in most places. In such a situation, where people are facing problems due to heat waves, doctors say that intense heat can also increase the risk of brain stroke. Brain stroke is a fatal condition in which blood flow to the brain stops or the veins of the brain burst. This causes damage to the brain cells, which affects various functions of the body.

According to doctors, the body has to work harder to maintain body temperature during extreme heat. This can increase blood pressure, which increases the risk of clots forming in the veins. Additionally, the body can also become a victim of dehydration, due to which the thickness of the blood increases and blood flow slows down. Both these conditions can cause brain stroke.

Some symptoms of a heat stroke are:

- Sudden severe headache

- Weakness or numbness in one part of the body, especially the face, arm, or leg

- Trouble speaking or slurred speech

- Vision problems, such as blurred vision in one eye or double vision

- dizziness, imbalance, or lack of coordination

- sudden fainting

If you or anyone around you sees these symptoms during summer, then take them to the doctor immediately. Brain stroke is a time-dependent disease, that is, the sooner treatment is received, the less damage is done.

Some important precautions to avoid brain stroke in summer

- Avoid direct exposure to sunlight during the afternoon when the intensity of the sun is highest.

- Keep drinking water throughout the day so that the body does not get dehydrated.

- Wear light and loose clothes. Wearing loose and light cotton clothes keeps the body temperature under control.

- Stay in the AC room as much as possible. Especially elderly and sick people are advised to avoid sunlight and stay in AC rooms.

- Do not reduce the temperature of AC suddenly. Suddenly reducing the temperature of the air conditioner can also cause harm to the body. Lower the temperature gradually.
