High and low temperature they have a detrimental effect on our health, harm some of us physiological functions. You can even get adapted to our power defenses against pathogenic micro-organisms, as identified by the Quirónsalud Murcia and Torrevieja Hospitals.
"So, for example, although high temperatures are going to favor pathologies gastrointestinal, low temperatures favor more frequent pathologies breathing, the origin of five out of ten visits to the emergency room, "said Dr. Fulgencio Molina, head of the emergency department at Ysbyty Quirónsalud Murcia.
What is vasoconstriction and what does it cause?
The vasoconstriction is culhau (restriction) o y blood vessels with little muscles in his walls. When the blood vessels are restricted, circulation of blood come back slow or accidents.
Therefore, one of the most important effects is the vasoconstriction that causes changes in the cardiovascular, higher blood pressure and heart rate, as in the area nasal, where it produces the mucus more intense.
Dr. Gemma Ramón, GP of Quirónsalud Torrevieja, warns that "vasoconstriction caused by low temperatures increases the likelihood of myocardial blow in patients with cardiovascular risk and promote formation thrombi. On the other hand, nasal vasoconstriction reduces the ability to dispose of the viruses that we breathe, along with the fact that we wait longer in places without ventilation such as offices, schools, etc., increases the risk of interference of respiratory viral diseases such as cold, flu or pneumonia. "
Symptoms of respiratory viral diseases
These respiratory viral diseases can be treated low degree fever, musculoskeletal pain, distress, cough a mucus. In addition, they can be complex in patients with them chronic diseases such as heart disease, COPD and diabetes, presenting more serious symptoms such as high fever, chest pain and dyspnea or respiratory distress in these cases. Similarly, it will have an adverse effect obese people, smokers a people over 65 or under 5, as highlighted by Dr. Ramón.
Tips for dealing with sudden changes in the temperature
To avoid all these conditions, Quirónsalud experts recommend you will be vaccinated, especially to the high risk population, avoid exposure to sudden changes in temperature, increase the amount of eaten fruit, especially citrus, and medical control of the most vulnerable population.
In addition, it is recommended that:
Babyr lot of fluid: Drinking enough water is always healthy, and in these cases more. Water helps to eliminate toxins and prevent virus recording in our body.
Taker vitamins: During this period of temperature changes, our immune system is affected, so it is important to provide nutrients and vitamins. We can follow a diet that is full of nutrients or take vitamin supplements.
Avoidr the crowds: Although it is not always possible, if we are exposed to cold, exposure to crowds, as in public transport, can cause infections.
Lafar hands often: This deed, especially before meals, can reduce the chance of respiratory illness of up to 30 percent.
Ventilationr the room: At least once a day, it is advisable to ventilate the house, and close windows before the sunset.
I guess he is the most important hospital group in Spain and the third in Europe. Yes present in 13 autonomous communities, with the most advanced technology and offers more than 6,500 beds in more than 100 centers, such as Jiménez Díaz Foundation, Madrid Quirónsalud University Hospital, Dexeus University Hospital, Ruber, Teknon Medical Center, La Luz Hospital, Policlinics from Guip'uzcoa, etc., as well as a great team of professionals extremely specialized and internationally prestigious.
We work in promoting teaching (there are seven hospitals as a university) and a scientific-scientific research (we have FJD Health Research Institute, the only private research center that has accredited by the Secretary of State for Research, Development and Innovation).
Similarly, our in-service support service is organized units and transformational networks which allows to maximize the accumulated experience in the different centers, and the clinical translation of our investigations. At present, Quirónsalud is developing a lot research projects across Spain and many centers play a leading role in this area, as pioneers different specialties such as cardiology, endocrinology, gynecology, neurology, oncology, and sports medicine among others.
