Cooling vests alleviate perceptual heat strain perceived by COVID-19 nurses

Wearing cooling vests during a -19 shift ensures that nurses experience less heat during their work. During their shifts, nurses wear protective clothing for three hours in a row, during which the temperature can rise to as much as 36 degrees. The cooling vests offer such effective cooling that they are now part of the standard work clothing for nurses in the COVID nursing departments at Radboud University Medical Center.
