Abstract
The goals of this study were, first, to determine the extent of the heat strain induced by wearing the Canadian Forces (CF) aircrew chemical defence individual protection ensemble (CDIPE) under simulated hot cockpit conditions, and second, to determine the effectiveness of a liquid cooled (LC) and an air-cooled (AC) vest in relieving such heat strain. Seven (7) healthy male subjects were subjected to three heat exposures (37C, 50% r.h., for 150 min, time-weighted metabolic rate of about 240 W, 1 week apart) either with no cooling (NC), LC or AC vests.
