||Fluid loss and replacement in petroleum workers from the north west of Western Australia
||Aug. 1996, Vol.12, No.4, p.457-461. 11 ref.
||Fluid loss, fluid intake, heart rate, and work rate (% physical capacity) were recorded for seven petroleum exploration workers in Western Australia. In relatively mild environmental conditions over two days, the average fluid loss was 434mL/h, fluid intake 466mL/h, and workrate 22%. Only three workers consistently replaced their fluid losses over the study period. Recommendations for the prevention of heat illness include adequate fluid replacement strategies to minimize the risk of hyperthermia, appropriate work-rest patterns, and worker education.
