    Have you recently go to the bathroom every 20 minutes to go wash face, otherwise, irritability? Or sitting in front of the computer for hours on oxygen and other sensory phenomenon? If the above symptoms, you may be suffering from "emotional heat stroke."

    Although not yet out of Shanghai Mei, extreme high temperature weather has not yet appeared,

    but the emergency room "emotional heat" "air conditioning pneumonia" in patients with atypical high temperature has come earlier than usual.


    Yesterday, the reporter interviewed the medical institutions in Shanghai Clinical Psychology Section and the related emergency department medical staff, more than 1 / 5 occurs in the summer "emotional heat", especially when the temperature exceeded 35 ℃, sunshine more than 12 hours, high humidity at 80%, the "emotional heat" the proportion is rising sharply.

    "Emotional heat" will be high

    Ruijin Hospital, doctors, told reporters two days the temperature did not reach 35 ℃, but some "emotional heat" of the patients have appeared much earlier than usual. Summer, many people only pay attention to avoid heat stroke on the body, in fact, emotional "heat" should beware.

    Clinical psychology specialist explained that, in general, low temperature environment is conducive to stability of the human spirit, the temperature increase rate increased, the human spirit, emotions will fluctuate, not only brought the body to be unsuitable, but also on the psychological and emotions have a negative impact, resulting in emotional upset, losing her temper, memory loss and other phenomena, psychology, called "emotional heat stroke." "Emotional heat" of the patient emotional irritability, easy to anger, feeling heart reheat, thought disorder, the exchange only when the words do not convey the slightest ring true will cause noise and scold.

    She reminded the public, resulting in "emotional heat" of the internal cause is the poor adaptability of the human body on the environment. According to meteorological department forecast high temperature in Shanghai this summer will continue for two weeks or so. Thus, with the "dog days" will come, "emotional heat" of the symptoms will go high on.

    Young and old susceptible to "air conditioning pneumonia"

    Compared with the past, most recently, another atypical disease is manifested by high-temperature "air conditioning pneumonia."

    As the long-term stay in air-conditioned room or in the area will often out, a lot of people suffering from a cold and high fever with no known cause. Ruijin Hospital of fluid in the chamber, more than 95% of all patients with sustained high fever and flu patients, some patients also pneumonia.

    Such pneumonia mainly related to inappropriate use of air conditioning in summer. Air conditioning inside the bacteria accumulated to a certain extent easy to create a "air-conditioning pneumonia", which is a common respiratory infection symptoms, not contagious to others. The elderly and children are "air-conditioning pneumonia" high-risk groups, the accumulation of household air conditioning mold, mites may trigger asthma, more allergies as children, the elderly decreased immunity, so air-conditioned indoor environmental hazards often have children, asthma or the elderly.

    "Emotional heat" symptoms

    Emotional irritability, easy to anger, feeling heart reheat, thought disorder, the exchange only when the words do not convey the slightest ring true will cause noise and scold.

    The more days to calm hot when we come across more

    People need to pay attention to emotional self-regulation, increase the rest time as possible, and diet adjustments, add some more water, attention to health care in summer.

    The more days of heat when we come across more to calm the upset can listen to a vacant light music, think green forest, blue sky, sea and other cool things people encounter when something goes wrong may wish to temporarily calm the next, do a few minutes "feeling relaxed parade."

      It is possible to become ill from a badly maintained air conditioner.

      However, I have lived in Central Florida for 25+ years where air conditioning is used extensively and I have never known anyone to become ill with pneumonia from air conditioning bacteria. It is possible, but how probable in the general population?

        So what could it be Sharon ? Could this be Legionaires or something like that - from the AC itself ?

          I do not know what this is. I would suspect Legionaires but these people are coming from their homes INTO the hospital. They are not getting this disease AT the hospital. Legionaires is typically spread in institutional settings.
