Due to the high infectivity of COVID-19, care personnel work in protective clothing that does not ventilate or hardly at all. Good protective clothing is essential for their work, but what if this clothing reduces comfort during a heavy day? Especially a higher body temperature can lead to problems. That is why Coen Bongers, Yannick de Korte, Maria Hopman and Thijs Eijsvogels of the Radboudumc together with TNO have developed an infographic focusing on the use, challenges and effects of cooling strategies for COVID-19 care personnel. This infographic has now been published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine (link: https://bjsm.bmj.com/content/early/2020/06/10/bjsports-2020-102528). The study was carried out in a brains4corona project and co-financed by ZonMw.
