TWELF-X watch vs Desert – Survival Tips in a Desert – Stay Hydrated

Coming to the end of our survival tips, the ability to be aware of your surroundings and identify danger is the key to getting out alive. The most common danger would be dehydration. Signs of dehydration include dry skin, dizziness, fainting and urine with a dark colour or noticeable smell. If any of these signs are exhibited, drink more water.

Heat exhaustion is also a given with the hot temperature in the desert. If you feel lightheaded or nauseous, or if your skin feels cool and clammy, seek shade immediately. The following steps will be on how to treat yourself. Firstly, remove or loosen your clothing and sip a sports drink or slightly salty water. Next, apply a wet cloth on the skin to aid cooling evaporation. If left untreated, it can progress to heatstroke. Symptoms of heatstroke include rapid breathing, muscle cramps and red skin that don’t sweat. Heatstroke can lead to other health issues such as kidney failure or even death.

Stay away from dangerous animals. Stay aware of your surroundings to avoid accidentally cornering something. Do not reach into small spaces like rocks without first poking it with a stick.

And with that, this concludes the end of Survival Tips In the Desert. Do look out for our next blog post as we will continue to share interesting and useful content.
