Description:

Aim: To identify the thermal index that best predicts exertional heat incidence risk during a city half-marathon.

Data: Eight years (2010-2017) of meteorological and ambulance transport data, including medical records, from Gothenburg’s half-marathon were used to analyze associations between WBGT, PET and UTCI and the rates of ambulance-required assistances (ARAs) and collapses.

Description:

Meteorological data consisted of hourly averages of air temperature, wind speed, relative humidity, mean sea-level pressure, and incoming shortwave radiation.
Thermal comfort indices are wet bulb globe temperature index (WBGT), Physiological equivalent temperature index (PET), and Universal thermal comfort index (UTCI).
