There is limited information on the ingestion of cold drinks after exercise. We investigated the thermoregulatory effects of ingesting drinks at 4°C (COLD) or 28°C (WARM) during work-rest cycles in the heat. On 2 separate occasions, 8 healthy males walked on the treadmill for 2 cycles (45 min work; 15 min rest) at 5.5 km/h with 7.5% gradient. Two aliquots(More)
Background: Current literature evaluating body mass (BM) changes across a variety of running race distances is limited. The primary objective of this study was to profile the range of BM changes across race distances. The secondary objective was to evaluate the prevalence of exercise-associated hyponatremia (EAH) in runners admitted to the on-site medical(More)
Many longitudinal studies have collected serial body core temperature (T c) data to understand thermal work strain of workers under various environmental and operational heat stress environments. This provides the opportunity for the development of mathematical models to analyse and forecast temporal T c changes across populations of subjects. Such models(More)
This study examined (1) if changes in gait characteristics could indicate the exertional heat stress experienced during prolonged load carriage, and (2) if gait characteristics were responsive to a heat mitigation strategy. In an environmental chamber replicating tropical climatic conditions (ambient temperature 32°C, 70% relative humidity), 16 males aged(More)
BACKGROUND There is limited information on the effects of sports drinks on cognitive function after exercise in the heat. We aimed to investigate the effects of ingesting a commercially available carbohydrate-electrolyte (CHO) solution on cognitive performance following exercise-induced hyperthermia. METHODS Twelve participants completed three practices(More)
Military personnel operating in hot and humid environments are susceptible to heat-related illnesses. As heat-related illnesses are associated with a rise in body core temperature (Tc), a reliable system for real-time assessment of Tc is useful to minimize heat casualties. However, invasive measurement of Tc (such as rectal, intestinal and esophageal(More)
