  • Answer: No, I would suspect a stuck open thermostat, a failing (worn) water pump or clogged heater core. Also chedk for a sticking heater control valve in the coolant circuit if fitted. It could also be a internally swelled heater hose from the block to the heater core blocking proper coolant flow..
  • Answer: "em heat" stands for emergency heat, when the temperature drops below a certain point this will allow your heat strips to kick in, you can also switch at any time to emergency heat and the heat strips will kick in, this however, allows the system to run like you have an electric heat/cool unit vs. a heat pump. The heat pump mode is more efficient but emergency heat will produce warmer air quicker. Hope this answers your question.
  • Answer: Elderly persons may have a lesser awareness of temperature changes so are more likely to be unaware of overheating; also, they have e lesser ability to determine thirst, which may lead to dehydration and a predisposition to heat stroke.
  • Answer: If you witness or come across an individual that collapses, you will always do the following:

    Assess for level of consciousness. Try to pinch the person between the shoulder and the neck while loudly yelling "are you OK" to illicit a response. You can also try to push on their fingernail with your fingernail.

    If no response, yell at someone to call 911 or emergency services.

    You would try to assess whether their airway is open, while the person is on their back, hyperextend their neck to open their airway. Then feel for breathing by watching their chest for the rise and fall of breathing. Then feel for a pulse under their jawbone close to the ear. Hopefully they are breathing and have a pulse. If they do not and you are trained in CPR, you would go through the CPR steps. If you can get someone to bring some cold rags and place on their forehead and some bags of ice under their arm pits, that would be helpful.

    If the patient collapses and you are able to get them to respond to you, you would want to encourage them to consume cool fluids and rehydrate. You would want to avoid beverages that are extremely cold. Gatorade is a good choice. Encourage the person to seek medical attention.
  • Answer: It sounds like you have no coolant flow through the heater core or the core is plugged
  • Answer: There are two ways that food can heat the body: one by increasing metabolism as in ingestion of too much iodine or by decreasing heat loss. Some things ingested like alcohol give the feeling of warmth as they increase blood flow to the skin and vasodilation, but that is the sensation of heat leaving the body.There are two ways that food can heat the body: one by increasing metabolism as in ingestion of too much iodine or by decreasing heat loss.

  • Answer: When treating someone for a heat stroke or heat exhaustion, youneed to first make sure that you keep them still. It is ideal tocall 911 as quickly as possible. Do not put anything cold on themas this can send them into shock.
  • Answer: Usually in cold weather climates it means that your cars coolant is freezing up. It will cause the engine temp to get real high as the coolant does not circulate which then also causes you to not have any heat.
  • Answer: Symptoms include confusion, rapid weak pulse, cramps, dizziness, nausea, diarrhea, headache, and high measured temperatures.
  • Answer: Wet heat you get in a sauna bath where there is hot rocks and water is poured over to let steam into the air. Dry heat there is very little moisture in the air. Wet heat can feel hotter but can be easier to breathe in than dry heat.
  • Answer: no. a heat wave is weather, a heat stroke is a health condition.
  • Answer: Heat Stroke
    Caused By: Body cannot regulate its own temperature due to intensive sweating under conditions of high heat and humidity. Advanced age can be a factor.

    Symptoms: Weakness, vertigo, nausea, headache, heat cramps, mild heat exhaustion, excessive sweating. Sweating stops just before heat stroke. Temperature rises rapidly (as high as 106 degrees Fahrenheit); blood pressure is elevated. Skin is flushed at first, then turns ashen or purplish. Delirium or coma is common.
    First Aid: Heat stroke is a medical emergency. Call for medical assistance. Move person to a cool, indoor place. Loosen or remove clothing. Primary objective is to reduce body temperature, preferably by iced bath or sponging down with cool water until pulse lowers to below 110 per minute and body temperature is below 103 degrees Fahrenheit. Caution is necessary.


    Heat Exhaustion

    Caused By: Person does not get enough liquid and salt in very hot, humid weather.
    Symptoms: Excessive sweating, weakness, vertigo, and sometimes cramps. Skin is cold and pale, clammy with sweat; pulse is thready and blood pressure is low. Body temperature is normal or sub-normal. Vomiting may occur. Although unconsciousness is rare, it may happen.
    First Aid: Lay person in cool place. Give water to drink with 1 tsp. of salt to each quart of water. Fluid intake usually brings about full recovery. Get medical assistance if severe.
