Mused after buying some hiking clothes on a recent vacation. My old cotton t-shirts and cargo pants were adequate but much like running or biking, clothes designed for specific activities work better. Can anyone suggest a store here in Cincinnati? Not sure I am ready for a hiking stick though.
HEATSTROKE AND HOW TO MONITOR IT
When the body cannot cool itself down, the core temperature can rise leading to heat exhaustion or heatstroke. The body normally cools itself (about 90%) by oozing sweat from skin pores. But sweating isn’t enough. The water must also evaporate. In a humid climate, if the air is already full of water there’s nowhere for perspiration to go.
Elevated core body temperatures above our normal 98.6 degrees but below 104 degrees can cause cramping and mild dehydration to profound water and salt depletion, a drop in blood pressure, vomiting and weakness. Above 104 degrees those symptoms may be accompanied by confusion, fainting, seizures or an inability to walk or speak normally. Up to 60% of patients diagnosed with heatstroke will die from its complications within one month.
(Did You Know? Skin measures around 20 square feet and weighs about 6 pounds depending on the size of the individual.)
The best metric to determine heat and humidity is “wet-bulb temperature”. This is measured by wrapping the bulb of a thermometer in a water-soaked cloth and then passing air over it until the water evaporates. The drier the air, the lower the wet-bulb temperature relative to the air temperature. When the wet-bulb temperature reaches 95 degrees, the body loses its ability to cool itself.
Dr. Colin Raymond, a researcher from NASA, examined wet-bulb temperatures for the past 40 years. Wet-bulb temperatures in excess of 86 degrees have risen from 300 per year to 1,100. The highest figures were recorded along the shores of the Gulf of California, the Gulf of Mexico, South Asia, and the Middle East. To put this in perspective, this year over 118 people have died from the heatwave in the Pacific Northwest with temperatures reaching 116 degrees. The wet-bulb temperature was 77 degrees.
