Note: The heat index, also known as 'apparent temperature', 'feels like', 'felt air temperature', or 'real feel', is what the temperature feels like to the human body when the air temperature is combined with the relative humidity. Additional factors like activity, pregnancy, differences in body mass, height, and shape, and metabolic differences 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 particularly important for children. 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.
To prevent overheating and help regulate its internal temperature, the human body sweat and rely on the evaporation to cool down. 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.
