Happy Fourth of July from Patricia Home Care! Summer is here and it’s time to jump in the swimming pool and enjoy good barbecue, friends and fireworks. With the season comes a lot of activity and responsibility so be vigilant for those enjoying the holiday. Watch for signs of heat exhaustion:
Cool, moist skin with goose bumps when in the heat
Heavy sweating
Faintness
Dizziness
Fatigue
Weak, rapid pulse
Low blood pressure upon standing
Muscle cramps
Nausea
Headache
If an emergency contact your local EMS. Be safe and have fun!
