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.

U.S. Army Combat Medic Specialist Staff Sgt. Shaun Martin, assigned to Blanchfield Army Community Hospital, drinks from a 16 ounce bottle of water to maintain his hydration in the warm weather. Dehydration occurs when the body uses or loses more fluid than it consumes and doesn’t have enough water and fluid for its normal functions.
