3:20 pm
being confused or losing consciousness. so those are all red flags that we want to look out for if they feel that their heart is racing or you notice or poses fast. you know, initially when we get overheated, we went. but once you get to heat stroke, you kind of stop sweating in the skin can be dry and read. so things to look out for when we're checking on each other. so when we do see that. >> what should we do. >> conan that's not something you should try and manage at home. that's something that she managed the hospitals for calling one or if you have to be across the street. emergency room. that's bringing otherwise it's life threatening condition. you should call 9, 1, so that an ambulance can pick up the individual. so we have temperatures that are. >> in the hundreds is that when we typically see heat stroke like what's the benchmark for when people start to overdo it and get sick. >> so that's a good question. it's definitely more likely when temperatures of that elevated. but remember those
3:21 pm
who can't regulate their own need very well or who have chronic conditions or who are older. it can happen even in the weather that we have in san francisco now. so, you know, it's only 72 degrees outside. it could be 10 degrees hotter inside just because of how of the homes are built here. and because of the lack of air conditioning. and then if you can't regulate their body heat. or take care of yourself very you're even more likely to have those those so it can happen at almost any warm temperature. but even more so when you get to the hundreds like houston and is it if you because you're outside for a prolonged period of time or you're working outside or just going for a walk. is there something that? >> that's common there of why people get sick from it. what they're doing. yes. so if you're exerting yourself, if you're outside, especially if you're away from water and away from shelter. >> you know, part of our vulnerable populations. those who do manual labor and work outside. is there outside for long periods of time and may not have access to water and
3:22 pm
shelter. that's definitely a risk factor for for having heat stroke usually before heat strokes, people might. these prints. he crams just kind of muscle cramping that after that, some more vague symptoms. like some of the nausea or stomach cramping and sweating and, you know, usually those are the warning signs. and then after that comes comes, the heat record is a real emergency. >> and have you treated anyone either the hospital or within the san francisco fire department today for heat stroke. >> you know, i don't have the day off the top of my head for everyone in the hospital ambulances. it's that's quite possible. in is you know, it does happen. but i think it's also important to highlight that when people think he felt and he think heatstroke. but really heat makes every medical condition were so any chronic illness respiratory cardiac psychiatric issues. those can all get worse. so we actually see more heart attacks more breathing problems, more infections, more psychiatric crises. we see an increase in everything
3:23 pm
with heat not just heat. stroke are the direct result of of heat. >> you have some tips on how to stay cool. >> yes. so, you know, it's important to seek shelter. you're not able to keep your your home cool by closing the curtains during the day and hang with 1000 fans. then you can consider going to a public area like a library many of them san francisco and the bay area rare condition. you can take a cool shower. and i a big, important thing, especially with the pandemic when people are kind of home more often is to make sure you check on each other check on your neighbors. check on your loved ones. check on your family and friends, whether it's a phone call or going over to make sure that here she is doing ok access to water access to medication to make sure that, you know, nothing progresses to you know, like we like we discussed. >> doctor jeremy, the koch from sf general, thank you so much for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 3 o'clock
