It is very harmful for men to urinate at will on plateau, and assertion of locals is irrefutable.
There are many landscapes in our country, and different regions have different geographical factors and landscapes. Our country has many plains, as well as plateaus, hollows, hills and other terrains, but plateau is most special, and ordinary people cannot adapt to plateau climate and environment.
I don't know if you've seen in TV dramas or movies that you pass out due to lack of oxygen when you urinate on a plateau. Is there a scientific basis for this? Today I will tell you whether you will pass out or die if you urinate on plateau.
1. Altitude sickness danger
All of us who have studied geography know that higher distance from earth, less air, which means that there will be less oxygen in air. The area of the plateau is at high altitude, and normal plain is an area of zero altitude, so altitude is inversely proportional to oxygen content.
Therefore, oxygen content in high mountain plateaus is very low. Therefore, most people will feel uncomfortable entering plateau because the brain and heart of our human body needs oxygen to keep it working.
Because we don't adapt to local climate, we will have altitude sickness when we go there. The biggest symptom is lack of oxygen. If "strong" inhalation of oxygen is not treated in time, organs of body will be in a dormant state that threatens life and health.
Therefore, when hikers go to highlands, guide will suggest hikers to take enough oxygen with them or take some medicine beforehand to relieve pain, and walk slowly to conserve energy and reduce oxygen consumption. But altitude sickness is not the same for everyone.
Secondly, why is it so harmful to urinate on a plateau?
Why do you say you'll get altitude sickness if you urinate on plateau? Because when you urinate, all systems in your body have to interact with urinary system in order to complete urination. Men urinate standing up, so while standing in plateau zone, bladder urinates from a full state to an empty bladder. .up
The blood in body will rapidly flow into abdominal cavity under high pressure, at which time blood volume of brain and heart will drop, and they will be in a state of hypoxia.
If you urinate in large quantities or for a long time, hypoxia will aggravate, causing dizziness and bruising under eyes. If it is light, it will pass out, and if it is strong, it will cause shock. That's all still very dangerous. In combination with your own disease, this will be life-threatening.
Not only will there be hypoxia in plateau, but low temperatures will also lead to hypoxia. When you are on a plateau, muscles in your body will generate heat because you are cold, which will consume oxygen in your body and leave your body in a state of hypoxia.
Therefore, when visiting plateau, you should pay attention to keeping warm and take steps to keep warm. But death rate on plateau is low, and cases like those shown on TV are isolated and unexpected.
After all, these people have traveled long distances across plateaus, and their bodies are already in a state of hypoxia, at which time they will urinate more heavily, faint and go into shock.
Third, what to pay attention to when urinating in a plateau
1. Watch out for altitude sickness. The plateau area is different from our usual plains. Generally, when we go to plateau to play, we bring our own oxygen, otherwise we will get altitude sickness, and everyone's reaction is different.
But it's uncomfortable for your body, so it's a good idea to take some altitude sickness medication beforehand when you're traveling across plateau to improve your ability.
2. Save energy. When you go to plateau, you should prepare more oxygen tanks. Also, do not run, do complex exercises, or walk too fast on plateau to reduce oxygen consumption and maintain physical strength.
If you feel that you are having difficulty breathing, you must inhale oxygen in time to avoid harm to your body. If you really want to go to toilet, you can inhale a little oxygen in advance, which will reduce likelihood of fainting.
3. Urinate slowly. During process of urination, girlfriends should slowly squat down, which will be safer. When you get up, you should also slow down. Even if you urgently need to urinate, you must control speed and pay attention to force of urination.
4. Do not hold back urination for a long time. Delaying urination will balance pressure in body. As long as you want to urinate, you must find a place to go in time. Don't hold back all time. If you hold back to urinate, you will consume too much energy, and gain outweighs loss.
In addition, holding back urine will also affect your concentration. If you find it very uncomfortable to urinate in a place without a toilet or in a place where it is inconvenient to urinate, you can wear a diaper so as not to worry.
Another way to ease altitude sickness is to drink more water, but drinking too much water makes you want to urinate, which is still weird. But substances in water can alleviate problem of lack of oxygen.
But in general, if you have a good understanding of problem of urination, you will gradually adapt to environment, and problem of urination can be solved. Don't worry too much about this issue. .
What do you think about this? Have you ever traveled across plateau? Do you have any suggestions for those planning to go? Everyone can speak freely.
