Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'felt air temperature', 'real feel', or 'feels like', is a measure that combines both air temperature and relative humidity into a single value that indicates how hot the weather feels. Additional factors like activity, clothing, wind, and differences in body mass, height, and shape affect individual temperature impact. 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. Children are often less aware of the need to rest and re-hydrate. Thirst is a late sign of dehydration - it is vital to remain hydrated, particularly during prolonged physical activities.
The human body normally cools itself by perspiration, as evaporated sweat carries heat away from the body. Under high air temperature and humidity (high heat index) conditions, perspiration is limited, and the perception of heat is increased. When heat gain surpasses the level the body can shed, body temperature begins to increase, and consequently, overheating and dehydration can occur, with varying severity.
