    WHAT ARE ELECTROLYTES?
     
         Technically, electrolytes are minerals (magnesium, potassium,sodium, and calcium) that are lost through perspiration or other forms of dehydration, particularly in heat stress situations. Under ideal conditions, electrolytes flow through muscle cells to keep them functioning normally. Perspiration depletes cells of fluids and weakens the muscle tissue. Within seconds of drinking SQWINCHER, the electrolytes are put back where they belong. And in the process, energy is back where it belongs.
        
         Water is the largest single componet in the body and serves as a vehicle for electrolytes because body fluid composition is largely water. Electrolytes are those substances or compounds which, when dissolved in water, dissociate into positively and negatively charged ions. Optimum nerve reaction and muscular activity are dependent on proper exchange of these ions outside and inside cells.
     
         Electrolytes can be simple inorganic salts of potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium or complex organic molecules. These minerals are lost through perspiration or other forms of dehydration, particularly in heat stress situations. Loss of body fluid means what it says: loss of water plus its contents (electrolytes) from the body. Intake of plain water replaces part of the loss, intake of an electrolyte drink replaces fluids plus the lost simple inorganic salts, all of which work together in keeping the body functioning properly.
     
         Within seconds of drinking SQWINCHER, the electrolytes are put back where they belong. And in the process, energy is back where it belongs.

    1. Locate today's predicted high temperature across top axis. 
    2. Locate today's predicted relative humidity along the side axis. 
    3. Intersect these two readings to find the Apparent Temperature or "What it feels like". 
    Heat Stroke or sun stroke imminent. Heat Index 101º - 129º 
    Sun stroke, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are likely. Heat stroke possible with prolonged exposure and physical activity. 
    Sun stroke, heat cramps and heat exhaustion are possible with prolonged exposure and physical activity.
    EXPOSURE TO FULL SUNSHINE CAN INCREASE HEAT INDEX VALUES BY UP TO 15ºF
    ALSO: STRONG WINDS, PARTICULARLY VERY SHORT, DRY AIR, CAN BE 
    EXTREMELY HAZARDOUS.

    Heat Disorder 

    Symptoms 

    First Aid

    Sunburn

    Redness and pain, in severe cases swelling of skin, blisters, fever, headaches

    Ointments for mild cases. If blisters appear, do not break. If they do break, apply dry sterile dressing. Serious burn cases should be seen by a physician.

    Heat Cramps

    Painful spasms usually in muscles of legs and abdomen, possible heavy sweating.

    Firm pressure on cramping muscles, then gentle massage to relieve spasm. Give sips of Sqwincher every 15 minutes.

    Heat Exhaustion

    Heavy sweating, weakness, dizziness; skin cold, pale and clammy. Pulse steady, normal temperature, possible fainting and vomiting.

    Get victim out of sun, lie victim down. Loosen clothes, apply cool cloths. Fan or move victim to air-cooled room. Give sips of Sqwincher every 15 minutes for 1 hour. If victim vomits, get medical attention.

    Exertional Heat Illness

    Stuporous appearance, tired and nauseated, may vomit, uncoordinated unsteady gait, perspiring heavily, dehyfrated, overheated body temperature 
    (up to 108 F)

    Cease exertion, promptly cool body exterior, initiate replacement of fluids – water first, then Sqwincher. If victim cannot retain fluids, transport to hospital.

    Heat Stroke

    High body temperature (106 F or higher), hot red dry skin, rapid and strong pulse, possible unconsciousness.

    Heat stroke is a severe medical problem, get victim to hospital immediately. Delay can be fatal. Move victim to cooler area. Reduce body temperature with cold bath or sponging. Use fans and air conditioners. DO NOT GIVE FLUIDS.
