Abstract/OtherAbstract:
PRACTITIONER SUMMARY: Firefighters wear personal protective equipment that is designed to protect the wearer; however it also imposes a physiological burden. It is known that work in firefighting PPE increases cardiovascular and metabolic strain. This study has shown that PPE does not alter the relationship between heart rate and oxygen uptake.
