MSU's Judy Lyle Explains Dangers of Heatstroke and How to Beat the Heat
Murray State's Associate Director of Health Services Judy Lyle explains the effects and dangers of heatstroke. She visits Sounds Good to speak with Kate Lochte on tips to staying cool and healthy despite the ongoing heat wave.
The National Weather Service in Paducah has issued a heat advisory in effect until Tuesday, Aug 26. With temperatures in the high 90s and heat index numbers above 100, the chance of heatstroke or illness greatly increases.
Lyle's recommends keeping hydrated with plenty water or non-alcoholic fluids, wearing loose fitting, light clothing, staying in an air-conditioned building or car and taking frequent breaks from strenuous outdoor activity.
