Okay okay, on to the fun stuff! 

Hey, did you know that June is CPR/AED Awareness month? Do you know what to do if someone has a heart attack? 

Here’s steps you can follow for hands-only CPR that will help that person until First Responders arrive –

Ask someone if there is an AED nearby too!

Our blood has oxygen in it and chest compressions help to keep that oxygenated blood flowing until first responders get there. 

If you have a small group and would like to learn hands only cpr, send an email to hope@wmvfc.org and I’ll have someone contact you. Boop!

Since it’s summer and we all love to exercise, I think all my frens need to know how to exercise safely to prevent heat exhaustion and a heat stroke.  

Here’s some tips from my favorite hoomans at the American Heart Association for you to follow and be safe – 

  • It’s best to get your exercise in before noon or after 3pm cuz that’s when the sun is the hottest and strongest and makes it harder to stay cool. Yuckies! 
  • Exercise with a friend cuz that’s lots more fun and it’s safer too. I love exercising! Oof!
  • Wear well-ventilated shoes and socks that absorb your sweat. Eww! 
  • Wear light colored and light weight clothing. Don’t forget to put sunscreen on too. Boop!
  • Drink lots and lots of water and avoid caffeine and alcoholic beverages. 
  • Take lots of breaks and cool down in the shade while you drink lots of water. It’s the bestest! 

Here’s some things to look out for in the heat: If you experience any of the following symptoms, move to shade or go inside and cool down with some cold, wet clothes or compresses and some fanning. 

Heat exhaustion symptoms include the following:

  • Headaches
  • Cool, moist skin
  • Dizziness and light-headedness
  • Weakness
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Dark urine

If your symptoms don’t improve or get worse, call 911. 

The symptoms of heat stroke include the following:

  • Fever (temperature above 104 °F)
  • Irrational behavior
  • Extreme confusion
  • Dry, hot, and red skin
  • Rapid, shallow breathing
  • Rapid, weak pulse
  • Seizures
  • Unconsciousness

If you or someone near you is experiencing these symptoms, call 911 right away. Don’t delay!
