OBJECTIVES Current knowledge about the incidence and risk factors for exertional hyperthermia (core body temperature ≥40°C) is predominantly based on military populations or small-sized studies in athletes. We assessed the incidence of exertional hyperthermia in 227 participants of a 15-km running race, and identified predictors for exertional hyperthermia. DESIGN Observational study. METHODS We measured intestinal core body temperature before and immediately after the race. To identify… CONTINUE READING
