Journal Article
Cole, E., Donnan, K. J., Simpson, A. J., & Garrett, A. T. (2023). Short-term heat acclimation protocols for an aging population: Systematic review. PLoS ONE, 18(3 March), Article e0282038. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0282038

Introduction Elderly and sedentary individuals are particularly vulnerable to heat related illness. Short-term heat acclimation (STHA) can decrease both the physical and mental stress imposed on individuals performing tasks in the heat. However, the...

Effectiveness of short-term isothermic-heat acclimation (4 days) on physical performance in moderately trained males (2022)
Journal Article
Shaw, J., Walkington, C., Cole, E., Gleadall-Siddall, D. O., Burke, R., Bray, J., …Garrett, A. T. (2022). Effectiveness of short-term isothermic-heat acclimation (4 days) on physical performance in moderately trained males. PLoS ONE, 17(11), Article e0270093. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0270093

Introduction A typical heat acclimation (HA) protocol takes 5–7 d of 60–90 minutes of heat exposure. Identifying the minimum dose of HA required to elicit a heat adapted phenotype could reduce financial constraints on participants and aid in the tape...
