Examining the Danger of Hot Cars
KETTERING -- If you thought today was hot, we've got another scorcher coming our way on Tuesday.
When the temperatures rise it's important to remember just how dangerous it can get inside your car with the windows rolled up.
It's something you've heard time and time again: don't leave your child, dog or anyone inside a car when it's sunny, hot and humid.
Monday, we wanted to show you exactly what happens.
We had medical professionals on standby to make sure the health of ABC 22/FOX 45 Reporter Elyse Coulter was never compromised.
They took her vitals before she sat inside the news vehicle.
The seconds slowly slipped by.
"It's only been 3 minutes," Coulter said inside the car.
Immediately, Coulter began to sweat.
"It's been about 9 1/2 minutes since I've been in the car with the windows up it's 99 degrees in here, and I'm already drenched in sweat and my face is beet red but at this point I'm still feeling all right," Coulter said inside the car.
"Heart rates definitely, yeah, it definitely went up," said the nurse.
That wasn't the only thing on the rise. The nurse said Coulter's temperature rose to 99.6 degrees.
"The heat in that car is going to rise very quickly, and that patient or that person is going to be at risk for heat illness," said Dr. Rachel Terlekcydo, ER physician with Kettering Health Network.
Another five minutes goes by.
"Hot. Very, very, very, very hot," said the reporter.
"Now I've been in the car for a total of 20 minutes and it's now 101 degrees, according to our thermometer in here I've been sweating nonstop and I'm actually feeling a little light-headed from all of the heat," said Coulter.
As Coulter's temperature rose, so did her heart rate and her breaths per minute.
It's proof, that the heat is hard even on a healthy adult.
"Being seated in a car that if off is never advisable in very heated conditions," Terlekcydo said.
Doctors say high heat is especially dangerous for children and the elderly.
It can take just five minutes for them to start feeling ill before suffering a heat stroke.
