Whnt 19 Weather, Snow in the Tennessee Valley makes for pretty scenery, but you can not have snow without the cold and extreme cold with just extreme risk. Huntsville emergency room doctor William Fialkowska says frostbite is a real concern in this kind of weather. “The skin becomes pale at first, and then becomes red and swollen. Then, when he becomes pale you lose sensation in your ears, your nose or your fingers. You do not want to rub keep warm because you can do tissue damage. ”
Once your body temperature drops below 92 degrees Fahrenheit, hypothermia can set in “The symptoms are the mouth and changes in gas, carried by chills, loss of the ability of organizations to maintain the heat of body. They become weak and dizzy and may actually lose consciousness. ”
Dr. Fialkowska said how you dress for the weather is your first line of defense. “Our clothes are dry and layered that all parts of the body that are exposed to cold or wind are covered.”
He says the worst thing you can do in cold weather is drinking alcohol, drinks containing caffeine and cigarette smoke. “Alcohol allows your body to lose heat and not maintain body heat, cigarettes, beta-blockers; people who are older or younger are at greater risk of injury hypothermia. Ultimately, if you do go out, you should have a buddy system, so if you encounter problems with your friend can help you and get you out of this cold environment. “
