Facts about the use of fans
Sleeping with a lighted fan is said to be related to certain health problems, such as:
1. Allergies and asthma
- Sleeping with a dirty fan can indeed cause recurrence of asthma and allergies.
Dust and dirt on the fan will fly in the room, then inhaled by the body, causing asthma and allergic symptoms. therefore, remember to routinely clean the fan every month.
- Hyperthermia is a condition where the body temperature is very high, which is above 40 ° C. In this condition, the mechanism in the body fails to cool the body temperature.
When in a warm or slightly hot environment, the body will respond by sweating, so that the body temperature remains normal.
But if the temperature is very hot, the body's mechanism is no longer able to compensate. As a result, body temperature will rise and hyperthermia will occur. If you don't get immediate help, hyperthermia can cause dehydration to death.
Some say that fans can trigger hyperthermia. But in fact, sleeping with a lighted fan does not cause hyperthermia. Turning on a fan is actually the easiest and cheapest way to cool the body when the weather is very hot.
- Hypothermia is a condition when the body temperature is less than 35 ° C. This happens because the body loses heat quickly, but is slow to produce heat.
If it is not treated immediately, hypothermia which is generally caused by weather or cold air can cause failure of organ function until death.
