Like air, water is critical to human survival. Support should be sought whenever symptoms include increased confusion, dizziness, fainting, heart palpitations, extreme fluid retention, shortness of breath, and/or inability to urinate. Learn more about healthy hydration and efforts to promote clean water. If drinking water is not helping, it’s time to see a medical doctor.
If you or someone you know is unable to move or breath or feels faint (or has fainted):
- Dial 911; or
- Go the nearest hospital emergency room
