Abstract : Five different laboratory studies were conducted in an effort to find the ways in which allotted time of work in the heat, recovery time and recovery thermal environment affect men. Neutral-dry or cool-dry recovery conditions were shown to favor rapid unloading of accumulated body heat. The usefulness of heart rate as a practical criterion for termination of exposures and for establishing duration of recovery periods was examined. Better understanding of the meaning of heart rate responses is required before this criterion can be adopted. (Author)
