Abstract

Football season becomes a danger zone when warm weather collides with the need for protective gear. Researchers determined critical heat balance limits in non-heat-acclimatized men who wore various football uniform ensembles. The air temperature and humidity limits that they identified are helpful in implementing strategies to prevent heat-related illness.
