2015 and 2016 have been some of the hottest years in recent memory for Karachi. It wasn’t so long ago when an unforgiving heat wave struck the city of lights, taking the temperature to an unprecedented boiling point of 45C!
To get a better understanding of the effect extreme heat can have on your body here’s a breakdown of what happens when subjected to such heat.
The body’s normal core temperature is 37-38C, when subject to heat, your body temperature increases to 39-40C, during this period the brain tells the muscles to slow down during which fatigue sets in. At 40-41C heat exhaustion is likely to occur with any further increase in body temperature leading to vital organs in the body shutting down.
Heat-strokes can happen anytime, but it’s most likely to happen to you when you’re directly exposed to the sun and dehydrated.
To help combat the onset of heat-strokes in Karachi, Atlas Battery – Pakistan’s leading battery brand is providing the people of Karachi a place of shelter where they’ll be protected by the unforgiving summer sun while waiting for public transportation with the added benefit of Mist Fans.
