Summer Heat Wave - July 2015

We all need to keep safe in the sun, especially with it being exceptionally hot this week.

Drink plenty! Regular cool drinks.

High factor sun cream, even sun block to protect surgery scars.

Those with pacemakers need no specific precautions

Those with complex heart conditions, including those with low saturations, “half a heart” conditions, those with shunts, and those on Warfarin need to drink plenty and regularly..

Those taking Amioderone can be sensitive to sunlight, so should limit their time in the sun.

The heat can drain energy levels, so take it easy.

Enjoy the weather - safely
