Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – With the arrival of warmer weather Blanchfield Army Community Hospital’s dietitians remind beneficiaries to monitor their hydration levels to prevent dehydration and heat related injuries.

“The onset of summer heat and humidity as well as Soldiers returning to duty may make individuals more susceptible to dehydration related injuries,” said U.S. Army Dietitian Capt. Erica Jarmer, a registered dietitian assigned to BACH’s Nutrition Care Division.

Jarmer shared two terms for beneficiaries to become familiar with when talking hydration; baseline hydration and performance hydration.

BACH lets you know what to Drink, Water, Sports Drinks and how much, when

 

Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (BACH)Fort Campbell, KY – If physical activity in the summertime has you feeling hot, sweaty, and thirsty, it’s only natural to reach for an ice cold drink to quench your body’s thirst, but not all beverages are created equal when it comes to rehydration. Certain beverages can cause more harm than good when it comes to hydration and Army officials want Soldiers to know how to best keep their body’s mission ready.

“Army-wide, heat injuries are on the rise with the highest rates in Soldiers less than 25 years old,” said Capt. Erica Jarmer, a registered dietitian at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital.

Shaun Martin, a combat medic assigned to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital's LaPointe Army Medical Home on Fort Campbell, drinks from a 16-ounce bottle of water to maintain his hydration for optimal performance. On average, the Army recommends men should consume about 100 ounces of fluid (3 liters) each day, and women should aim for about 70 ounces (2 liters) for baseline hydration. In hot and humid environments and during physical activity, more is needed to maintain hydration - about one ounce per pound of body weight. (U.S. Army photo by Maria Yager)
