CDC Clinical Guidance for Healthcare Professionals

CDC clinical guidance will enable clinicians and their patients to create personalized plans that will help ensure we can continue to safely enjoy warmer months. Even though heat can impact anyone's physical and mental health, many groups may be particularly sensitive to heat and CDC's guidance has focused initially on children with asthma, pregnant women, and people with cardiovascular disease.

"Arizona is one of the hottest places on earth from May to September. Heat-related illnesses are common during the summer. Year after year, nearly 3,000 people visit Arizona emergency rooms because of heat-related illnesses."
"Arizona is experiencing increasingly longer periods of extreme heat, causing more Arizonans to experience heat-related illness, emergency room visits, and death. Taking proactive measures to mitigate the challenges posed by rising temperatures is essential in protecting the health of Arizonans."
