Live music is an event that takes place all year round. Concerts are often held in indoor halls or outdoors, but in the case of outdoor live concerts, it is necessary to take some measures against the heat. In recent years, the temperature has risen in the world, and more and more countries are suffering from abnormally high temperatures. Therefore, those who do not take any measures will die at worst, so please protect yourself firmly.
What is heat stroke?
Heat stroke is caused by lack of water or the inability to control the temperature inside the body in a high temperature environment. It is called sunstroke. It is a disease that causes various symptoms such as increased body temperature, dizziness, convulsions, and headaches. If you experience any of the following symptoms, you should consider the possibility of heat stroke.
- Myalgia, muscle stiffness
- A lot of sweating
- Headache, discomfort, nausea, vomiting, malaise, collapse
- Disorders of consciousness, convulsions, limb movement disorders
Places where heat stroke is likely to occur
Heat stroke is not just an event that happens in the field. It is also an illness that tends to occur when the body is not in the heat, such as when the temperature suddenly rises during the rainy season. Even on cold days, high humidity makes you more susceptible to heat stroke. Therefore, even if you are indoors, you may suffer from heat stroke. In other words, heat stroke gets angry when the temperature changes drastically or when the temperature stays high, regardless of the location.
People who are prone to heat stroke
Everyone gets heat stroke. However, among them, the elderly are particularly prone to heat stroke. The reason that older people are more susceptible to heat stroke is that sweating and blood circulation, which are related to thermoregulatory function, are lower than those of younger people. It is hard to feel the heat, cold and thirst, so you may not use the air conditioner or neglect to rehydrate even in a hot and humid environment.
Be sure to take measures against heat stroke when you go to a live concert in hot weather or hot days. If you do not take any measures, you will die in the worst case. Please take the following measures before going out.
For outdoor concerts, wear a well-ventilated hat. Direct sunlight is quite debilitating and is a direct cause of water loss. If you don’t like a hat, you can use a parasol. Try to avoid sunlight.
Nowadays there are very small small fans. You should also consider the ease of use, such as those that you can carry around and those that you can hang around your neck. Depending on the mobile fan, the sound may be annoying, so it is recommended to choose the one that is as quiet as possible.
Cooling spray is also effective as a measure against the heat. There are various types of cooling sprays, such as those for hanging on the body and those for cooling on shirts and towels. With a cooling spray, you can take measures against the heat with just a little use.
Summer concerts are so hot that they are constantly deprived of water. Moisture is the most important thing in human activity, so be sure to replenish it. Also, make sure to replenish the salt properly.
Today’s earth is getting hotter and hotter. Global warming is projected to exceed 1.5 ° C and 2.0 ° C during the 21st century, unless greenhouse gas emissions are significantly reduced over the decades. In scenarios with very high greenhouse gas emissions, global average temperatures are expected to rise by up to 5.7 ° C by the end of this century compared to pre-industrial levels. It is possible that the world 100 years from now will be a world with only summer.
