||Thermoregulatory response to wearing encapsulated protective clothing during simulated work in various thermal environments
||June 1994, Vol.55, No.6, p.529-536. Illus. 29 ref.
||This investigation assessed the thermoregulatory impact of performing simulated tasks normally encountered during chemical accident clean-up while wearing chemical protection clothing under various representative thermal loads. Three different types of suits were compared under three different temperatures. Non significant differences were observed for both the average heart rate and sweat rate. Significant differences were found for mean skin temperature, mean body temperature, and temperature within the suit cavity. Suit type did not significantly affect rectal temperature, which also failed to exceed the American Council of Governmental Industrial Hygienists' standard of 38.0░C.
