Summary of heatstroke in Japan
Our hypothesis turned out to be right, which is necessary to analyze of segmentation by region and age groups.
The timing caring about heatstroke differs from age groups.
Juveniles：During the exercise and seasonal changes
Adults：During the labor work
Elders：During the daily life
In terms of regional analysis, especially the metropolitan areas and western Japan need attention. Metropolitan areas：Large number of heatstroke patients by EMS
It is caused by large number of population and heat island phenomenon.
Western Japan：High rate of heatstroke patients by EMS
It is caused by highness of temperature, absolute humidity, and WBGT (the index showing the risk of heatstroke).
Check the highest temperature and WBGT because they have strong correlation with the rate of heatstroke patients by EMS!
Raising the awareness of the risk of heatstroke plays an important role in dealing with the issue. It also links to our goal, which is to increase the awareness of heat stroke and reduce the number of patients who suffer from heat stroke.
Please check the following pages, where we disseminated our findings and verified its effect in dealing with heatstroke.
We focused on the case of Japanese.
Let's think about heatstroke of foreign visitors next.
