Doctors in the Emirates warn residents of serious medical conditions

rawda samy - | UAE

In the Emirates, medical professionals are warning people about hazardous medical issues.

As temperatures approach nearly 50 degrees Celsius, medical professionals in the UAE are warning of heat exhaustion and stroke.

Doctors warn of the risk of diseases resulting from high temperatures.

Temperatures that are too high pose a threat of disease, according to medical professionals.

Those who are at risk of heat-related disease are described, and precautionary measures are recommended.

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), temperatures have been so high that they have prompted concerns about heat-related illnesses that could pose major health hazards. On Friday, temperatures in certain locations reached as high as 49.9 degrees Celsius.

Warnings for UAE residents during the summer.

This is a warning for residents of the UAE throughout the summer.

Residents are being asked to take preventative measures in light of the persistently severe summer weather, which has led to an increase in the number of cases of heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

At least two incidents of heat exhaustion and heat stroke have been reported by medical professionals in the United Arab Emirates.

Burjeel Hospital in Abu Dhabi was visited by a construction worker who was 42 years old and complained of acute muscle cramps, dehydration, altered sensorium, and low blood pressure. He was brought there after seeking medical attention. The fact that his creatinine level was more than 300 meant that he had an acute renal injury, which was caused by muscular damage brought on by extreme dehydration. His condition was quite critical.

The same thing happened to a fabricator who was thirty years old and working on an outdoor job when he complained of cramps and weakness. Not only did he suffer from nausea and headaches, but he also began to have stiffness in his hands and feet. Because of the confined space in which they worked, the Nepalese expat was unable to consume sufficient amounts of water, which led to dehydration. Subsequently, he was sent to the Thumbay University Hospital in Ajman for medical interventions.

The medical professionals have determined that both of the residents were suffering from heat exhaustion. This is a syndrome that manifests itself when the body's cooling mechanism is unable to maintain a normal core temperature, which ultimately leads to overheating. After receiving treatment for a period of forty-eight hours, the residents were released.

Heat cramps and heat exhaustion are two examples of heat-related illnesses, according to medical professionals. There is a possibility that it could even result in heat stroke, which is a condition that could potentially be fatal.

When your body is overheating, it is unable to cool itself, and it has lost an excessive amount of water and salts (typically as a result of excessive sweating). You are said to be experiencing heat exhaustion. According to Dr. Farhan M. Asrar, a Canadian public health and family physician who was born in Dubai and currently works at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, heat stroke occurs when the body is unable to control its temperature and the temperature continues to rise.

According to Dr. Ahmed Mohammed Abdelrazek Deabes, a specialist in internal medicine at Burjeel Royal Hospital in Asharej, Al Ain, heat exhaustion is characterized by a number of symptoms, including weakness, dizziness, muscle cramps, headache, nausea, vomiting, a quick pulse, and extreme thirst.

"When heat exhaustion is not treated, the blood supply is redirected from essential internal organs to the skin, which ultimately results in the failure of several organs throughout the body. Because the body is no longer able to control its temperature on its own, immediate medical intervention is required in order to prevent severe organ damage or death, as stated by Dr. Kiran Kumar, a specialist and the chairman of the department of internal medicine at Thumbay University Hospital.
