Abstract:

A conference on heat stress, heat strain and heat acclimatization was convened. The conference attendees were a group of experts from the United States and abroad. The attendees were asked to discuss, on an informal basis, the physiologic and other criteria of heat stress and methods of measurement the criteria and mechanisms of heat acclimatization and methods of measurement the factors that should be studied in investigating the poorly acclimatizable or super acclimatizable individual acceptable limits of pulse rate, body temperature or other parameters for humans working in heat relationship of laboratory diagnosis of acclimatization with performance capability in the field. In addition, each conferee was asked to contribute his suggestions on areas of research in heat stress and heat acclimatization that would appear to be most promising and have highest priorities in military needs.
