Alert 01 – 21 Heat Related Conditions


Under normal conditions the body’s ability to dissipate heat through the evaporation of sweat and convection of cooler air over the skin is sufficient to prevent heat-related conditions from developing. As the temperature and humidity rises, the effectiveness of the primary method of cooling by evaporation is reduced. Another important factor for heat-related health problems is insufficient intake of fluids (water and electrolyte solutions) during these conditions.
