AbstractThe existing literature suggests two standpoints in defining heat intolerance, which are heat tolerance as state or trait. The former bases its case in the plasticity of human physiology, where one may gain or lose the adaptations associated with heat acclimatization and the ability to tolerate heat is considered transient. This phenomenon is exemplified in the recovery process of exertional heat stroke (EHS) patients in that victims of EHS are able to eventually regain heat tolerance and return to activity without recurrent episodes of EHS. On the other hand, an increasing number of reports imply that genetic pred...

ao Chen When exercising in a high-temperature environment, heat stroke can cause great harm to the human body. However, runners may ignore important physiological warnings and are not usually aware that a heat stroke is occurring. To solve this problem, this study evaluates a runner’s risk of heat stroke injury by using a wearable heat stroke detection device (WHDD), which we developed previously. Furthermore, some filtering algorithms are designed to correct the physiological parameters acquired by the WHDD. To verify the effectiveness of the WHDD and investigate the features of these physiological parameter...

Abstract Heat stroke is a serious pathological condition with high mortality. Vascular endothelial cell injury is a key feature in the pathogenesis of heat stroke, but the specific pathophysiological process whereby this occurs is still unclear. Currently, relevant studies are primarily based upon examination of apoptosis. Recently, pyroptosis, a new form of inflammation-related programmed cell death, was also demonstrated to be involved in heat stroke pathophysiology. Herein, we present evidence that vascular endothelial cell pyroptosis can be induced by heat stress in a time- and temperature-dependent manner. Fu...

One of the most important issues our world currently faces is global warming. While there appears to be no shortage of research exploring the environmental effects of climate change, what about its psychological effects on people? In a study discussed in detail here, researchers determined that the way people were affected mentally and emotionally by climate change depended on what type of particular concern they had regarding the environment. Results showed that those who were most concerned about the planet’s plants and animals (biospheric concern) experienced more stress than those who were concerned about the en...
