Abstract : The report considers questions of man's endurance under intense thermal conditions. Data are introduced concerning the physiological mechanisms of adaptation of the organism to high temperatures and to increased atmospheric humidity. Methods of increasing tolerance of the organism to thermal influences are investigated and certain peculiarities of hygiene and labor physiology of mine-rescue workers are discussed. (Author)
