Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.

Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased.
