Japan… is HOT. The end of July through August
is the hottest time of the year here and if

you haven't experienced a true Japanese
summer… it's oppressive. Last Sunday we

recorded a video at the cosplay summit, and
it was 37°C or Jun says it was almost 38°C,

which is about 100°F, with 70% humidity.
And it's that humidity part that makes it

so rough. On days like that you only need
to be outside walking around for a couple

minutes until you are completely drenched
with sweat. I remember when I studied abroad

here, when I'd go to my classes in the summer,
just from walking from my dorm to the classroom

I would sweat so much that I would have to
bring a sweater with me, because the air conditioning

in the classroom would make me really cold
and wet and freezing.

So adjusting to the heat here can be a bit
of a challenge. But it can also be really

dangerous, and that's what I want to talk
about today. When we went to the cosplay summit

on Sunday several observers left in ambulances
with heatstroke, and these aren't just like

old and the sickly people who are getting
heatstroke. These are young people who are

getting this, too.
And actually according to the Fire and Disaster

Management Agency, the one week from the 27th
of July through the 2nd of August saw 11,672

people taken to the hospital in Japan for
heat stroke. Only half of those people were

elderly, and 25 of them died.
So I want everyone who comes to Japan during

this type of weather to realize that this
can happen to anyone, and I want you to be

prepared and be safe. So today I'm going to
give a PSA (a public service announcement)

on how to prevent heat exhaustion and heat
stroke.

So what are the differences between heat exhaustion
and heat stroke:

Heat exhaustion is the lower level of these
two and you're going to go through it before

you get to heat stroke.
You'll know you have heat exhaustion if

you're outside on a really hot day, you're
sweating a lot, and you start feeling like

you're going to pass out.
The symptoms of heat exhaustion are:

Sweating heavily, feeling weak and/or confused,
dizziness, nausea, headache, fast heartbeat,

and dark urine from dehydration.
So I have actually had heat exhaustion a few

times in my life. I am not a human being who
was built well to handle the sun. I have actually

passed out standing in formation in the military
before, and I almost passed out at the parade

on Sunday.
If you've never passed out before, what

going to happen is your eyesight is going
to go blurry, it's going to be hard for you

to see. And your ears are going to feel kind
of like they popped. It'll be difficult

for you to hear as well. And if this is happening
because of heat exhaustion you're probably

also going to start feeling a little nauseous.
So when you start feeling these symptoms,

you need to step out of the sun, go sit down
somewhere cool, and drink some water or sports

drink. When this happens, do NOT ignore it
and try to power through. Your body is telling

you it's halfway to passing out and if you
try to ignore it you're going to end up

on the floor. I really want to stress this
part. Do not try to power through because

you won't. I realize it can be kind of embarrassing
to tell your friends "I need to go sit down"

or something. You don't want to be seen
as weak, and you don't want to be an annoyance

to anyone. But it's going to be significantly
more embarrassing if you pass out, someone

calls an ambulance for you, and the paramedics
show up with a stretcher when all you really

needed was to sit down and drink a glass of
water. If you don't take action when you

notice these symptoms, you are endangering
your life for no reason at all, and you're

tying up paramedics who may have someone else
they could have gone to who REALLY needs medical

attention.
So, think about yourself and others. When
you start feeling some of these symptoms,

step away from the heat, go sit down somewhere
cool, and drink some water or sports drink.

Once you get some sports drink or water back
in you, you should start feeling normal again

and you'll be good to go back out.
But if you ignore all of those symptoms, it

can turn into heat stroke, and this can be
life threatening. Symptoms are a high fever,

severe headache, dizziness/light-headedness,
red skin, a lack of sweating, muscle weakness

or cramps, nausea or vomiting, fast heartbeat
and breathing, confusion or disorientation,

and seizures.
Untreated this can lead to organ failure and

death. Once someone reaches heat stroke, they
can no longer treat themselves and you need

to call them an ambulance. The number here
in Japan is 119. So that's 911 backwards.

119. I know all this sounds really serious,
but your health isn't a joke and even if

this doesn't apply to you, if you're able
to recognize the symptoms then if this happens

to someone else, you'll be able to help them
get the care that they need.

I also want to give you guys some tips on
preventing these things BEFORE they happen,

which is really the best scenario.
Starting 24 hours before you go out, make

sure you're drinking a lot of water and
hydrating yourself. Since most people go out

pretty much every day, basically this just
means make sure you're always drinking water.

Also, the morning you go out, make sure you
eat your breakfast. It can be really easy

to wake up late, be in a hurry and head out
without eating anything, but if that's the

case make sure you at least stop by a conbini
and get some nutrition bars like Caloriemate

and eat it while you're on your way. This
breakfast part is especially important for

people who don't exactly have healthy diets
or may not be getting all of their nutrients,

or people who have issues with low blood sugar
or may be anemic. If you don't eat your

breakfast you are significantly more likely
to pass out. That passing out stage of heat

exhaustion can sometimes be completely avoided
if you just eat your breakfast. Your body

needs the nutrition and energy.
And of course make sure you're wearing sunscreen.

Wear light and loose-fighting clothing. If
you want, you can wear a sunhat. I wore a

sunhat on Sunday. Hand fans are extremely
common here so you can get one of those. Or

you can take a parasol with you, which is
an umbrella for the sun. Jun and I have used

those before, too.
And most importantly, bring water or sports

drink with you, and make sure you're drinking
ALL DAY. Especially when you're sweating,

you need more water than you'd think. So
I was at the cosplay event for three hours

and I drank this much sports drink, plus I
had several glasses of water during lunch,

and at the end of the day I peed out this
much and I was still dehydrated. So make sure

you are drinking a lot. And I recommend that
throughout the day you are drinking at least

one thing of sports drink. It's kind of rare,
but if you are losing a lot of water and electrolytes

and you're only putting a lot of water back
into your system, you can get water intoxication,

which can also be very dangerous. When we
were in the military for example we were required

to drink at least one thing of sports drink
with every meal throughout our training. So

I highly recommend drinking at least some
sports drink. As you can see, most of mine

were sports drink. And another thing is make
sure you're drinking consistently throughout

the day. It's a lot better for you than trying
to gulp down a whole bottle all at once, because

that can make you kind of nauseous and sick.
So this was public service announcement video.

I know a lot of you guys are probably like
UGH WHATEVER but just keep these things in

mind. I want all of you who are watching our
channel to take care of yourselves and be

safe. Your trip here to Japan is probably
going to be a lot more enjoyable if you don't

get heat exhaustion, so just be safe, guys.
Thanks for watching! See you guys later! Bye!
