Abstract
The study was performed in order to determine our capabilities to measure significant differences in heat stress imposed on human subjects by various items of combat and protective clothing using our present equipment and techniques. Heat stress was assessed in terms of changes in pulse rate, rectal temperature, mean weighted skin temperature, total body temperature and total weight loss. The most suitable parameters to measure when comparing various items of clothing and equipment are discussed.
