Note: The heat index, also known as 'real feel' or 'apparent temperature', is found by incorporating humidity levels into the air temperature measurement.

Heat index values are largely significant for babies and toddlers. Children frequently do not comprehend the need for rest and hydration. Thirst is an advanced stage of dehydration - staying hydrated, especially during extended physical exercises, is essential.
The body's self-cooling mechanism is rooted in perspiration, where evaporating sweat cools down excessive warmth. When relative humidity is on the rise, it curtails evaporation, thereby reducing the heat elimination from the body and causing the feeling of being excessively hot. When heat surpasses the body's release mechanisms, dehydration and overheating risks become pronounced.
