According to CNN, Arizona’s temperatures have risen to unsafe heights since July. Hikers have recently encountered days that reached 110 degrees Fahrenheit.
Due to the increase in heat-related ailments, hospitals are now experiencing crowds that are comparable to those during the Covid pandemic.
Emergency department physician Frank LoVecchio of the Valleys Health Medical Centre detailed the terrifying scenes at neighborhood hospitals during the heat wave in an interview with CNN:
“The heat is taking a major toll. The hospital has not been this busy with overflow since a few peaks in the Covid pandemic.”
In addition to heat-related ailments, Dr. LoVecchio claimed that extreme heat also causes painful burns. He talked about how many patients who were experiencing ailments like dehydration would stumble and get hurt more on the heated ground. It is advised that while trekking, civilians take enough food, water, and sunscreen.
