Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'feels like', or 'real feel', is a measure that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. This effect is individual, with diverse people perceiving weather differently for numerous reasons (clothing, differences in body mass, height, and shape, wind), and activity. Bear in mind that direct sunshine exposure increases weather impact, and may raise heat index by up to 15 Fahrenheit (8 Celsius) degrees. Heat index values are especially crucial for babies and toddlers. Young children are generally more endangered than adults, as they usually less sweat. And also, due to larger skin surface relative to their small bodies and higher heat production as a result of their activity.
Perspiration is the human body's physiological response to high temperatures and is an attempt to lower body temperature through evaporation of sweat. High relative humidity reduces the evaporation rate, resulting in a lower heat removal rate from the body, causing the perception of being overheated. If the body can not disperse the excessive heat and body temperature reaches conditions of hyperthermia, above 37.5°C (99.5°F) to 38.3°C (100.9°F), thermal conditions are potentially life-threatening.
