This study forms part of a research programme to investigate the relationships between the rise in core temperature and the environmental temperature in soldiers exercising at a constant rate. The measurement of core temperature is a fundamental requirement for this research. The aim of this study was to evaluate the use of an infra-red tympanic thermometer (IVAC Corecheck) for use in thermal physiological studies conducted outside the laboratory environment by comparing the right ear… CONTINUE READING
