Estimating Risks of Heat Strain by Age and Sex: A Population-Level Simulation Model

Glass, Kathryn; Tait, Peter; Hanna, Elizabeth; Dear, Keith

Description

Individuals living in hot climates face health risks from hyperthermia due to excessive heat. Heat strain is influenced by weather exposure and by individual characteristics such as age, sex, body size, and occupation. To explore the population-level drivers of heat strain, we developed a simulation model that scales up individual risks of heat storage (estimated using Myrup and Morgan’s man model “MANMO”) to a large population. Using Australian weather data, we identify high-risk weather...[Show more]
