The importance of atmospheric conditions in determining the heat regulation of the human body has been emphasized by the researches of the last ten years. Scientifically conducted experiments have shown that a large part, if not all, of the discomfort and ill effects brought about by so-called bad ventilation is due to interference with the normal activity of the heat-regulating mechanism. Atmospheric temperature is an important factor in causing physiologic disturbance, but atmospheric humidity also has a large share.
