  1. 1. Physical ActivityInjuriesChapter 4- Lesson 5
  2. 2. Weather-Related Risks Hot Weather-Related Risks  Dehydration- excessive loss of water from the body  Poor air quality
  3. 3. Hot Weather-Related Risks Overexertion  Overworking the body Heat exhaustion  Overheating the body that results in cold, clammy skin and symptoms of shock  Caused by overexertion in a hot, humid atmosphere
  4. 4. Hot Weather-Related Risks Heat cramps  Muscle spasms that result from a loss of large amounts of salt and water through perspiration
  5. 5. Hot Weather-Related Risks Heatstroke  A condition in which the body loses the ability to rid itself of excessive heat through perspiration  Causes hyperthermia (increase in body temperature)  May have difficulty breathing or may suddenly collapse
  6. 6. Cold-Weather Health Risks Wear 3 layers of clothing  Make sure the layers keep out moisture 70% of the body’s heat is lost through the head, so a hat is a must Frostbite and hypothermia are two specific health risks to keep in mind

Cold-Weather Health Risks Frostbite  A condition that results when body tissues become frozen  Cover all exposed skin • Ears, face, feet, and fingers  An early sign of frostbite is frostnip • A whitening of the skin of the toes, fingers, nose, or ears  Go indoors immediately if any area of the body has a lack of feeling due to the weather
  8. 8. Cold-Weather Health Risks Hypothermia  A condition in which body temperature becomes dangerously low  Body loses the ability to warm itself  As body temperature drops, the brain cannot function and body systems begin to shut down
  9. 9. Minor Injuries Muscle cramp  Spasm or sudden tightening of a muscle  Happens when a muscle is tired, overworked, or dehydrated Strain  Condition resulting in damaging a muscle or a tendon Sprain  An injury to the ligament surrounding the joint
  10. 10. Major Injuries Fractures and Dislocations Tendonitis Concussions
  11. 11. Homework Pg 106 and 107 Exploring Health Terms  1-9 & 13-15 Recalling the Facts  1-10 All in complete sentences!!! Due Tomorrow!! TEST TOMORROW!!  Chapter 4- Lessons 1, 2, 3, and 5
