Note: The heat index, also known as 'feels like' or 'felt air temperature', ties air temperature with relative humidity to produce the perceived temperature sensation. Additional elements including metabolic differences, the level of physical activity, and attire have a role in shaping the individual's temperature perception. It is essential to realize that direct sunlight can escalate the perceived temperature, increasing the heat index by 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values remain especially vital for babies and toddlers. Kids often lack the knowledge about the necessity to take breaks and consume liquids. Thirst, as a late symptom of dehydration, necessitates the maintenance of hydration, particularly during enduring physical activities.
One way the human body deals with excessive warmth is by perspiring and allowing sweat to evaporate. In the presence of abundant moisture in the atmosphere, the cooling process through evaporation is hindered, causing the body to feel excessively warm. When the body is unable to balance heat gain, its temperature elevates, which may induce thermal illnesses.
