Hydration and Electrolyte Replacement in the Winter

Hydration is just as important in the winter as it is in the summer.  Realizing that you are dehydrated when it is cold outside is more of a challenge.  We perspire underneath the layers of clothing that keep us warm in the winter.  Perspiration is absorbed by our clothing and we think we sweat only when it is hot outside.  That is so far from the truth!  When in an industrial setting in the winter months we need to be more aware of hydration.  We tend to drink less and dehydration is less obvious.  We are more prone to accidents in the workplace while operating machinery or working at a job site when we are dehydrated.  Be aware of this possibility and remember that the temperature outside is not as important as the temperature inside of your body.  To combat dehydration, look at the All Natural Sword Electrolyte Replacement products here!

Testing for alcohol with Drager tubes is efficient and inexpensive.  Alcohol testing equipment may be too impractical to take into the field, so that is when Drager Alcotest Tubes are perfect for mobile alcohol testing.  These tubes are quick to use and give immediate results for traffic safety use, correctional facilities and industrial use.  When testing for alcohol, it is recommended that the test is given at least fifteen minutes after the last drink is consumed.  Immediately after consumption of alcohol, a high alcohol content is present in the mucous membranes of the mouth and throat.  This mouth alcohol level would provide a false alcohol level if testing is done within fifteen minutes of consumption. 
To perform the test for alcohol with the Drager tubes, the tips of the tube are opened and the tube is connected to the the breathing bag.  The person being tested exhales into the tube and inflates the bag.  If alcohol vapor is present in the exhaled breath, the yellow indication layer turns green.
Alcotest CH00222: When the green discoloration zone reaches the annular ring, it can assumed that the alcohol concentration corresponds to 0.5‰ B.A.C.
Alcotest CH00199: When the green discoloration zone reaches the annular ring, it can assumed that the alcohol concentration corresponds to 0.8‰ B.A.C.
