Doctors urge CT residents to heed signs of heat-related injury
Doctors warned Thursday that in heat as intense as the current heat wave even a healthy person can die from heat exhaustion or dehydration in a short period of time.
Physicians at Norwalk Hospital are urging people to use common sense in the searing sun and heat. Dr. Michael Carius warns that the more a person sweats, the more they could be putting themselves at risk if they?re not constantly hydrating. He says the best way to preserve health is to stay out of the heat altogether.
Doctors at the hospital say they are ready and able to treat people who come in with heat-related illnesses, including the person admitted Wednesday night for a heat related injury.
