||Biochemical and physiological evaluation of an integral suit with a combined cooling and respiratory protection system
||Biomechanische und arbeitsphysiologische Bewertung des Kühl- und Atemschutzgerätes [in German]|
||1981, No.319, p.10-15. Illus. 6 ref.
||A description of an integral cooled suit combined with an independent respiratory protective system is followed by the results of studies on movement impediment and physiological effects caused by this protective system in a team of mine rescue workers. Diagrams of body-core temperature, pulse rate and subjective comfort in relation to the test parameters (70%C, 60-90% relative humidity, 70W workload), exposure time and the maximum tolerable wearing time. The suit can be tolerated for a prolonged period - which facilitates mine rescue and firefighting operations.
