Summer Exercise and Heat Illness

by Michael Stump, MD, BV Orthopedics and Sports Medicine

Michael Stump, MD

With the nicer weather of summer, more people are taking advantage of the warmer temperatures and exercising outside. However, exercising in the heat does increase the risk of heat illness. Fortunately, precautions can be taken to safely exercise throughout the summer. Before discussing prevention, it is helpful to understand the signs and symptoms of the different types of heat illness. There is a spectrum of heat illnesses, ranging from heat cramps to heat exhaustion to heat stroke.

People with heat cramps experience muscle spasms that result from the heat, most commonly affecting the calves or thighs, but can involve any large muscle group. The cause of heat cramps is often dehydration, but can also be caused by too much hydration with just water. Heat cramps can be treated by resting and stretching the involved muscle group, as well as rehydrating.

Heat exhaustion occurs when a person sweats excessively with activity, resulting in symptoms of dehydration. Symptoms include dizziness or feeling faint, heavy sweating, cool and moist skin, and rapid pulse. If you suspect you have heat exhaustion, it is important stop all activity and rest, move to a cooler place out of the sun, and rehydrate with water or sports drinks.

Heat stroke, the most severe heat illness, occurs when the body overheats and can no longer maintain a normal temperature through sweating and other mechanisms. Signs and symptoms of heat stroke include a high body temperature, altered mental status or confusion, racing heart rate, and dry, hot, and red skin from the lack of sweat. Heat stroke is a medical emergency. If left untreated, it may result in damage to the brain, heart, kidneys or muscles. If you suspect a person may have heat stroke, seek immediate help by calling 911. While you are waiting for help to arrive, move the person into a cool environment, remove any excess clothing and attempt to cool the person. This could include putting him or her in a cold bath or wading pool and placing ice packs on the person’s head, neck, armpits and groin.

There are several actions you can take to prevent heat illness. Maintaining proper hydration throughout the day—not just while you are exercising—is important. It is recommended to drink 8-16 ounces of water 1-2 hours before exercise, 5 ounces every 10 minutes while exercising, and 18 ounces after exercise. Water is generally the best fluid to drink, but if you are exercising for more than one hour or have issues with heat cramps, sports drinks may be helpful. Take frequent breaks and rest during exercise, ideally in a cool environment. Try exercising in the morning or late evening and avoid exercising during the hottest part of the day if possible. Wear loose-fitting, light-colored clothing that absorbs sweat. Gradually increase the time and intensity of your exercise in the heat over a 1-2 week period so your body can adjust to the warmer temperatures. Finally, if you start to experience any signs or symptoms of heat illness, start treatment immediately. If symptoms do not resolve quickly, seek medical assistance.

By following these recommendations, you can safely continue your exercise routine through the summer months and enjoy the benefits of year-round fitness.

BOLD Congressional initiative to combat ‘the scourge’ of Alzheimer’s disease

Bi-partisan bill in both Houses of Congress may provide them…

AMAC supports Congressional BOLD initiative to combat ‘the scourge’ of Alzheimer’s disease
WASHINGTON, July 20 – The Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC] has endorsed bi-partisan legislation in Congress to focus attention and resources on “the scourge” of dementia and, in particular, Alzheimer’s, which is America’s most expensive disease.
The BOLD [Building Our Largest Dementia] Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act [S.2076] and the House version of the bill [H.R.4256] were both introduced last November with bi-partisan support. Susan Collins [R-ME], Chairman of the Special Committee on Aging, introduced the bill in the Senate. Rep. Brett Guthrie [R-KY] sponsored the House version. The measures would provide “research funding … needed to achieve our goal of preventing and treating Alzheimer’s by the year 2025,” according to an online post by Sen. Collins.
AMAC president Dan Weber sent letters of support to Senator Collins and her cosponsors in the Senate and to Representative Brett Guthrie and his cosponsors in the House. In his messages, Weber stated: “The BOLD Infrastructure for Alzheimer’s Act will empower those living with Alzheimer’s, and their caregivers, by increasing access to education and expanding necessary support services. The steps outlined in this bill will ensure both patients and caregivers are best positioned to deal with the effects of Alzheimer’s and preserve the financial integrity of our healthcare system by averting a potentially disastrous public health crisis.”
Weber has long been calling for a new focus on Alzheimer’s and says “it’s about time that one of the most devastating diseases afflicting older Americans receives the full attention of the U.S. government. It is destructive to the individuals who suffer from this malignant form of dementia and their families. But it also has the potential of overwhelming America’s healthcare infrastructure if it is not checked.”
Weber notes that AIDS, a disease that is in decline and afflicts 1.1 million Americans, receives some $32 billion in Federal funding. Meanwhile, he points out, the National Institutes of Health [NIH] says it will spend just $1.9 billion this year to fund research on Alzheimer’s – a disease that plagues the lives of more than 5.7 individuals in the U.S. and is expected to destroy the lives of as many as 14 million by the year 2050.”
Former U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. David Satcher, who also served as the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “Alzheimer’s is the most under-recognized threat to public health in the 21st century.”
In an appeal for support of the BOLD Act, Satcher said that the legislation would create a “public health infrastructure across the country to implement effective Alzheimer’s interventions.” It would:
·     Establish Alzheimer’s Centers of Excellence that would increase early detection and diagnosis, reducing risk, preventing avoidable hospitalizations, reducing health disparities, supporting the needs of caregivers and supporting care planning for people living with the disease.
·     Provide funding to help public health departments implement effective Alzheimer’s interventions.
·     Make available funding for the Increased data collection, analysis and timely reporting needed to support research aimed at controlling and controlling the disease.
“The BOLD Act provides a new, sorely needed perspective on Alzheimer’s disease and much needed, substantive support in the quest for a cure. Along the way it will help researchers to come up with new, more effective ways of managing this insidious form of dementia. Meanwhile, the more we learn about the pathways of Alzheimer’s with help from the public sector, the more effective medical researchers in the private sector can be in checking the progress of the disease among older Americans,” Weber said.
