Abstract:

This report provides a comprehensive overview of the normal human physiological responses to environmental and exercise-related heat stress, with emphasis placed on acute heat exposure and acclimation produced by repeated heat exposure. In addition, the report reviews biomedical factors that modify exercise-heat tolerance such as aerobic fitness, dehydration, circadian patterns and sleep loss and medications. Also, the report reviews thermoregulatory responses of special populations such as women, blacks, children, older adults and spinal cord injured populations.
