Senica. The number of heat crashes on Monday (20.8) has fallen. Medical surgeons have helped 45 people throughout Slovakia at high temperatures. The day had helped 51 people. TASR informed the spokesperson for the Emergency Health Service Operational Center (OSZZZ) SR Alena Krčová.
"We were in the Prešov region, where nine patients needed help, the least we had in the Trnava and Trencin regions, where three patients collapsed," Krčová said.
Prevention is important
Care providers, however, still call on the public to pay attention to prevention. It is true that high temperatures are a burden for every organism, but the most vulnerable are children, seniors and chronic patients. When people no longer want to stay out of the house, rescuers recommend not to forget a suitable headgear and lightweight clothing.
Liquids must be continuously replenished throughout the day and not wait for the feeling of thirst. It is ideal to drink clean water, mineral water, diluted fruit and vegetable juices.
"Alcohol-free coffee should be avoided because it enlarges the blood vessels," Krčová said, adding that the patient has a cold and gives him a small breathing fluid, even though the health problems are overheated due to overheating.
In the event of a health condition, contact the emergency services 155, where the operator gives advice on how to proceed.
