Abstract:

An effective program for prevention of heat casualties is discussed. It is based on the concept that the total heat load imposed on the trainee by climatic heat stress in combination with elevated rates of internal heat production induced by exercise can be maintained within his physiological capacity by adjusting work load downward as environmental heat stress mounts.
