Ini adalah bahagian dua daripada siri tiga rencana mengenai ''cuaca panas''

yang melanda negara terutamanya di Lembah Klang ketika ini.

KUALA LUMPUR, 18 Jun(Bernama) -- Kumpulan berisiko tinggi semasa cuaca panas

ketika ini termasuk kanak-kanak, mereka yang terlantar kerana penyakit kronik

serta warga tua.

Pakar-pakar penjagaan kesihatan telah menasihati orang ramai agar

mengurangkan aktiviti luar rumah dan menurut mereka lagi ini adalah penting bagi

mengelak dehidrasi (kehilangan kandungan air dalam tubuh secara drastik) serta

strok'' yang disebabkan oleh cuaca terlalu panas.

Antara simptom yang muncul bila badan mengalami dehidrasi adalah kejang

otot, sakit kepala, pening dan mual selain daripada mengalami pengsan dan tidak

sedarkan diri jika tidak menerima rawatan, jelas pengamal perubatan Dr Shuhaimi

Jamil dari Rawang dekat sini.

"Kanak-kanak berisiko lebih tinggi...," katanya kepada penulis baru-baru

ini.

AKTIVITI LUARAN TIDAK PERLU

"Walaupun minum banyak air, individu tidak digalak melakukan aktiviti luar

rumah kerana air sebenarnya akan cepat hilang melalui proses peluh," kata

beliau.

Apabila cuaca terlampau panas badan akan cepat letih dan mengalami

dehidrasi. Akhirnya proses penyejukan badan tidak lagi berkesan.

"Bila individu didedahkan kepada suhu panas, mereka kemungkinan diserang

keletihan dan strok," katanya dan menambah kata antara gejala yang muncul adalah

disorientasi, pening dan keletihan yang amat sangat.

Bagaimanapun strok disebabkan cuaca panas boleh dicegah.

"Semasa musim panas, pakailah pakaian longgar serta ringan dan berwarna

terang agar boleh memantul cahaya matahari.

"Minum banyak air dan ini akan membantu badan mengawal suhu,"

terang pengamal perubatan itu.

WASPADA

Dr Shuhaimi juga menasihati orang ramai agar waspada terhadap sesetengah

ubat.

"Waspada terhadap masalah berkaitan cuaca panas jika anda terpaksa mengambil

ubat yang menganggu keupayaan sistem badan bagi menyejukkan diri.

"Jangan tinggalkan anak atau siapa-siapa dalam kereta. Ini adalah salah satu

faktor yang banyak menyebabkan kematian anak-anak kecil yang ditinggalkan dalam

kereta.

"Tidak selamat meninggalkan orang dalam kereta (tanpa pendingin hawa

beroperasi) dalam keadaan cuaca panas sebegini walaupun kereta itu berada

ditempat teduh," tambah beliau.
