Authors: Zachary J. Schlader, Blair D. Johnson, Riana R. Pryor, Jocelyn Stooks, Brian M. Clemency, David Hostler

From the authors: “These data provide important information regarding emergency resource allocation and/or rescue decision making in disabled pressurized rescue module or submarine scenarios, and/or any other civilian or military emergency situations necessitating prolonged exposures to warm and very humid environments (e.g., mine collapse).” 

This study is highlighted as one of May's "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
