Which of the following is NOT a risk factor for external heat illness for students? Age What’s the most reliable indicator you should use when determining if you should modify activity for heat? Wet bulb temperature taken at your field. How much fluid should a student drink for every pound lost during exercise? 16-20oz.
ACSM Expert Consensus Statement on Exertional Heat Illness
In addition, the presence of a predisposing factor (e.g., recent viral illness or fever) on a particular day increases the risk of heat stroke in subsequent days and sets up the “multiple-hit hypothesis” , which may account for athletes who have completed the same exercise-heat stress task many times in the past without any pathological.
Exertional heat illness in adolescents and adults
The management of exertional heat stroke and other forms of exertional heat illness is discussed separately, as are exercise-associated hyponatremia, nonexertional heat stroke, malignant hyperthermia and other causes of severe hyperthermia, and heat illness in children.
EXERTIONAL HEAT ILLNESS Information, Guidelines and Best
Students who do not properly acclimatize to the heat, do not hydrate properly, have a poor diet and/or are ill/recovering from an illness are more susceptible to all types of EHI. HEAT ILLNESS RISK FACTORS High temperature and humidity Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) higher than 82° F.

Exertional heat illness review for med students
Fact check! Test your knowledge of heat illness and ways to prevent it based on CHAMP’s video series on exertional heat illness. Name 5 risk factors for heat illness. Health & age Dehydration Prolonged exposure to the sun Poor heat acclimatization Underlying medical conditions Why are Service Members especially susceptible to exertional heat illness? Service Members can be at risk for.
Health Risks and Interventions in Exertional Heat Stress
Physical exertion increases heat production within the organism many times over; if not enough heat is lost, there is a risk of exertional heat stress. This review article discusses contributing factors, at-risk groups, and the diagnosis and treatment of heat illnesses. Methods A selective literature search was carried out on PubMed.
Climatic Heat Stress and Exercising Children and Adolescents
Because these known contributing risk factors are modifiable, exertional heat illness is usually preventable. With appropriate preparation, modifications, and monitoring, most healthy children and adolescents can safely participate in outdoor sports and other physical activities through a wide range of challenging warm to hot climatic conditions.
Exertional heat stroke: pathophysiology and risk factors
Research about risk factors for exertional heat stroke remains limited, but dehydration, sex differences, ageing, body composition, and previous illness are thought to increase risk. Immediate cooling remains the most effective treatment strategy.
Predisposing risk factors on susceptibility to exertional
Data sources: A comprehensive literature review of MEDLINE and 1996 to 2006, including all retrospective, controlled studies of EHI risk using the following keywords: exertional heat illness risk, exertional heat stroke risk, and exercise-induced dehydration risk. Search limits included the following: English language, published in the last 10.
