Characterization of passive whole-body heat stress responses in obese and non-obese adults

Primary aging is associated with impairments in the body's responses to heat stress. Additionally, higher body mass may be associated with reduced tolerance to heat stress. Adults over the age of 65 are the most at-risk population for heat-related illness; however, less is known about the development of such vulnerability in middle-aged adults. This study aims to characterize heat stress responses in middle-aged adults (aged 40-65 yrs) with body mass index (BMI)>30 and BMI<25 during whole-body heating.
