The Clipsal 500 Studies: (CO), Dehydration and Heat Stress

The Clipsal 500 Studies: (CO), Dehydration and Heat Stress

AIMSS is part of an informal worldwide consortium of research institutes that is investigating the possible effects of carbon monoxide, heat and dehydration on driver performance.

 
In Australia the environment at the race circuit regularly includes factors of high temperature, high solar radiation, and low wind which when combined with Carbon Monoxide from race car exhaust gases, exerts unique physiological demands on motor sport participants.

To better understand these possible effects AIMSS commissioned researchers from Monash University to study the effects of Carbon Monoxide Exposure and Physiological Stress on Drivers, Crew and Officials during an Australian motor sport event.
