Abstract:

An exertional heat stroke incident may cause heat intolerance for an unpredictable length of time. One factor that probably influences the duration of heat intolerance after heat stroke is the severity of the heat injury. A heat tolerance test, after an appropriate rest period, is the only method available for evaluating when a soldier should return to regular trainingplay in a reasonable time period.
