When dealing with especially harsh weather conditions, it"s important to be aware of the severity of the potentially life-threatening health implications involved. Unfortunately, the risks can run deeper than the common cold or flu. When proper precautions are taken however, the more dangerous conditions resulting from too much exposure to extremely cold weather can be avoided.
Frostbite affects exposed, often smaller body parts such as the hands, fingers, feet, toes, ears and nose, etc., This dangerous and painful condition occurs when the surface skin and the underlying tissue begins to freeze. It is detected when the skin takes on a red, blue, yellow or waxy appearance. It may include numbness, as well as a burning, tingling or itching sensation. Mild forms of frostbite are treatable. More advanced forms however, can result in muscle, bone and nerve damage or infection, requiring amputation.
If you suspect you are experiencing signs of Frostbite, remove any wet clothes, cover any exposed areas of the skin, and gradually warm frostbitten areas. Place hands under armpits, and be careful not to walk on frostbitten feet or toes.
Frostbite is a serious condition which can result in dire consequences, so it"s important to remember the best form of treatment is prevention.
- Check weather forecasts ahead of time before planning any outdoor activities. If temperatures look to be especially frigid, it may be wise to plan something indoors, or postpone the event.
- Always dress properly, even when in a hurry. The extra time spent properly covering and insulating ears, nose, feet and hands will be well worth the avoided trip to the hospital.
- If you plan on spending an extended amount of time outdoors, make an effort to step indoors from time-to-time to stay warm.
- Stay dry!
- Avoid consuming alcohol before or during your time in the bitter cold. Alcohol can prevent you from becoming aware that your body is too cold.
- At the first sign of pain or skin discoloration, or if you simply suspect that you or a loved one are too cold, get to a warmer place quickly and cover any exposed skin.
