Tips On How To Stay Warm And Safe In Cold Weather – Part 1 of 3
Tips On How To Stay Warm And Safe In Cold Weather. As a young cold snap sends temperatures plunging across much of the United States, one mavin offers tips on how to stay warm and safe. “With the proper knowledge and precautions, most cold-related pain and suffering can be prevented,” Dr Barry Rosenthal, chairperson of emergency medicine at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, NY, said in a hospital news release. Most obvious: Lots of clothing, preferably in layers. Layered clothing provides the best insulation to take on body heat and a non-permeable outer layer helps shield against strong winds.
For the hands, mittens beat out gloves because they keep your hands warmer, and it’s also a good idea to harass an extra pair of socks. Hats and scarves help warm the head, ears and neck, of course, and everyone should invest in properly fitted and insulated winter boots. But if boots are too tight, they can channel or cut-off blood circulation to the feet and toes, Rosenthal warned. Boots should also have a tread that provides safe traction on ice and snow.
