With the summer approaching, and the heat of summer in full swing, residents in the lee county area are taking the time to seek medical help for some of the most important things in their lives. The most common thing that’s happening in the lee county area is a heat related emergency.
It’s a very common thing to see that during the summer months, heat related emergencies are not uncommon and even common. According to the Texas Department of Health, in 2013 there were 20,000 heat-related hospitalizations in the state. And those numbers are expected to increase as the summer heats up. For years now, the Texas Department of Health has been sending out a letter to residents during the summer months with heat related information.
With the vast majority of heat related medical emergencies being at home, this is good news. In a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association, heat related emergencies were responsible for a whopping 50% of all hospitalizations between 2007 and 2009.
And while the state has been doing this, they are also doing a lot more. As of July 1, 2009, the department has set up a hotline at 1-800-735-2287 and a website that has been updated to include a link to the new hotline, but it still does not have an answer for the majority of heat related emergencies.
Heat related emergencies are common. The heat wave that hit the country in June of 2009 was one of the most catastrophic heat waves we can remember. It killed more than 700 people and caused an additional 11,000 to be hospitalized. It’s not a question of if there will be heat related emergencies again, but rather when. In 2005, Congress gave the National Weather Service the authority to create a database for heat emergencies.
The National Weather Service has since updated that database every year, but I have no doubt that this year it will not be up to standard. The National Weather Service’s heat emergency database has been updated every year since 2005, but the latest update is only for the summer of 2009. So far, the most recent data shows an average temperature of 95 degrees and an average humidity of 76 percent.
That’s bad. According to new data from the National Weather Service, the average temperature in the U.S. this summer is expected to be 96 degrees. So if you live in the state that lies within the range, you’re going to have to suffer through some pretty brutal heat. According to the latest data, the average humidity in the U.S. for the summer is already as high as 78 percent.
The average humidity in the U.S. summertime is now at 78 percent, according to data from the National Weather Service. Which is still way too high for much comfort, but at least it’s nice and warm and there’s no humidity.
There is no good way to live without humidity, so if you have a little heat in your life, you will most likely end up with a little heat in your health. And as the summer heat continues to get hotter, it is likely that we will start to see a growing trend of people in the U.S. suffering from some form of heat-related illness.
Heat-related illnesses can be a mixture of different conditions. High temperatures, dehydration, heat stroke, heat exhaustion, heat cramps, heat exhaustion, and heat stroke can all be the result of a heat wave. In the very worst cases, people can be put in the hospital when their body temperature reaches 103 degrees. When the temperature goes above 99 degrees, the body starts to use its heat-seeking muscles to try to cool itself. In extreme cases, people can die from heat stroke.
