By Emily Rachman – Staff reporterTents and other tent types can help people stay cool during hot weather.
But they can also cause respiratory problems and cause other health problems.
“You have a really big air gap, which means you have to cool your lungs,” said Jonathan Harkins, a health physicist at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, who has studied the effects of hot weather on the respiratory system.
“It’s like a balloon is blowing over your lungs and your body can’t breathe.
It’s not like you have a ventilator that’s blowing over the top of your head.”
In addition to the respiratory problems, tents can also be prone to trapping air and trapping heat, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Harkins has studied hot weather tents, which are made of wood and are commonly used by families and campers.
They are typically designed to be used in hot weather but can be used indoors.
“The problem with tents is they’re really big, they’re not very well insulated, and they have very little ventilation,” Harkings said.
“They’re like a big balloon, and your lungs are trapped.”
Harkings has found that tents can be especially vulnerable to heat waves.
“What happens is they lose air and heat and they expand,” Harks said.
Harks’ lab has developed a test to monitor tents’ air and temperature, and is now working with other labs to develop a way to use tents as a model of human heat.
“Tents can really cool down,” he said.
“They’re a great device for keeping people cool, but they can cause respiratory conditions.”
Hacking the tents’ design can help keep tents coolSource: Medical News NowTents are typically made of two layers: a thermal layer that absorbs heat from the inside, and a dry-wicking layer.
The thermal layer is made up of layers of foam that absorb the thermal energy from the air, and the dry- wicking layer is a layer of water that keeps the tent’s fabric from drying out.
Hacks can make tents better at absorbing heatTents that can be modified can help protect against heat stress, and can even help to reduce heat-related respiratory problems.HARKINGS said that one of his research subjects, a mother and her daughter, had tried to make a tent with a different type of thermal insulation to prevent overheating.
“One of the challenges with tents, especially in summer, is that the air gets too hot and too dry, and you can actually lose heat,” HARKINGS told Medscape Medical News.
“So she had to get a thermal insulated tent with an insulated fabric, and then add a dry insulation to the tent to keep the tent cool.”HARKERS also found that thermal insulation was particularly effective at keeping tents cool.
“Thermal insulation can actually keep the temperature of a tent down, so they’re more comfortable and have less air resistance,” he explained.
“When you have that type of tent, it’s also less likely that you’re going to get an overheating event.”HACKING THE TENTS’ TUBESHARKS and his team have found that heat-resistant thermal insulation is especially effective at staying cool in summer.HACKINGS has developed an algorithm to test the effectiveness of thermal insulating a tent and has developed new thermal-insulation technology to test other types of tents.HIS team is using thermal insulators that are more likely to trap heat and help to prevent heat-induced respiratory problemsSource: Harkicks labMedical News Now, a team of researchers from the University at Albany has developed ways to modify tent designs to reduce the amount of heat-absorbing material in the tent.
Tents, which usually consist of two different layers, usually have a thermal insulation that absorbs thermal energy and keeps the fabric from becoming too dry.
The thermal insulation absorbs heat and keeps its fabric from getting too dry or too warm.
Thermal insulators are less likely to absorb heat and absorb more heat.
The researchers are using a new thermal insulator called BPA-free thermal insulation, which is made of a polyurethane material, that is less likely than other thermal insulations to absorb excess heat and retain heat.
According to the researchers, BPA is an industrial solvent that is used in a wide range of products, from plastics to plastics-based paints and solvents.
“Our research has identified that thermal insulative materials that are resistant to BPA exposure are more effective than thermal insulates that are not,” the researchers wrote in the study.
Hakon and his colleagues found that the BPA free thermal insulation reduced the amount that the tent absorb heat, but also increased the amount heat it absorbed.
“We found that it also increased our ventilation by increasing the amount we were able to control the temperature inside the tent,” Hakon told Medscape Medical News on Wednesday
