||Physiological limits of exercise in full-body protective clothing
||1997, Vol.3, No.3, p.242-257. Illus. 36 ref.
||Physiological changes during physical exertion in three types of full-body protective clothing with different weight and heat insulation characteristics were investigated. Physiological parameters were measured during physical exercise tests. Results indicated that use of this clothing can lead to extreme physiological strain during exercise. Limitations on exercise were imposed by the extra weight of the clothing and by heat strain caused by impeded heat dissipation mechanisms. The level, type and duration of work carried out by an individual should be closely regulated while working in full-body protective clothing under extreme conditions.
