Assessment of Thermal Condition of Health Workers Who Use Personal Protective Equipment From Biological Hazards During Their Work With COVID-19 Patients

Overview

This research will provide data on thermal condition of medical workers who use personal protective equipment from biological hazards. Aquired data will be used to define acceptable period of use for these protective costumes. This research will recruit 6 volunteers. During 6 hours each subject will perform their work using protective costume. Heart rate, skin and air temperature under costume and hygrometric data will be registered. Also there will be questionnaires for volunteers for subjective assessment of thermal and moisture sensations.
