Abstract : Thermoregulatory responses of human subjects undergoing heat stress were studied utilizing a variety of environmental conditions, clothing, and work rates. Internal body temperatures were measured in the lower esophagus, ear (tympanic membrane), and the rectum. Skin temperatures, heart rate, sweat rate, and metabolic rate were also measured.
