PURPOSE Using a 1-year old male infant as the model subject, the objectives of this study were to measure increased body temperature of an infant inside an enclosed vehicle during the work day (8:00 am-4:00 pm) during four seasons and model the time to un-compensable heating, heat stroke [>40 °C (>104 °F)], and critical thermal maximum [>42 °C (>107.6 °F)]. METHODS A human heat balance model was used to simulate a child's physiological response to extreme heat exposure within an enclosed… CONTINUE READING
