Your body normally cools itself by
sweating, but during hot weather, especially with high humidity, sweating
just isn't enough. Your body temperature can rise to dangerous levels. Older adults, young children and
those who are sick or overweight are most at risk. Drinking fluids,
replenishing salt and minerals and limiting time in the heat can help.
There are many products to help you stay cool and
beat the heat this summer. The best environments provide a cool, dry
flow of air to help evaporate moisture. This process of evaporation
pulls heat from your body.
Go Cool is a portable air conditioner
like no other, as it delivers cold, dry air to any location for a
prolonged period of time. The best part is that Go Cool is the only
portable air conditioner to do this with ice and water
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heat-related illnesses include:
- Heatstroke - a life-threatening illness in which body temperature
may rise above 106° F in minutes; symptoms include dry skin, rapid,
strong pulse and dizziness
- Heat exhaustion - an illness that can precede heatstroke; symptoms
include heavy sweating, rapid breathing and a fast, weak pulse
- Heat cramps - muscle pains or spasms that happen during heavy exercise
