A common name for decompression sickness.
Loss of consciousness caused by a decreased breathing stimulus.
The loss of heat by direct contact; for example, when I body part comes in contact with a cold or object.
The loss of body heat cost by air movement. For example, the a breeze blowing across the body.
The temperature of the central part of the body. For example the heart, lungs, and vital organs.
A painful condition seen in diapers to resend it to quickly, in which gas, especially nitrogen, forms bubbles in blood vessels and other tissues; sea bands
The slowing of the heart rate cost by submersion in Coldwater.
The process of experiencing respiratory impairment from submersion or immersion in liquid.
Any signs and symptoms caused by the difference between the surrounding atmospheric pressure and a total gas pressure in various tissues, fluids, and cavities of the body.
The conversion of water or another fluid from a liquid to a gas.
Damage to tissues as the result of exposure to cold; frozen body parts
Painful muscle spasm is usually associated with vigorous activity in a hot environment.
A heat emergency in which a significant amount of fluid and electrolyte loss occurs because of heavy sweating; also called heat prostration or heat collapse.
A life-threatening condition of severe hypothermia caused by exposure to excessive natural or artificial heat, marked by warm, dry skin; severely altered mental status; and often irreversible coma.
A balance of all systems of the body.
A family of insects that includes bees, wasps, ants, and yellow jackets.
A condition in which the body core temperature rises to 101°F or more.
A condition in which the body core temperature falls below 95°F after exposure to a cold environment.
The transfer of heat too cold or objects in the environment by radiant energy; for example, he gained from a fire.
The loss of body heat as warm air in the lungs is exhaled into the atmosphere and cooler air is in hailed.
A triage Process used in treating multiple victims of a lightning strike, in which efforts are focused on those who are in respiratory and cardiac arrest. Reverse triage is it different from conventional triage where such patients would be classified as deceased.

On February 23, 1987 astronomers noticed that a relatively faint star in the Tarantula Nebula in the Large Magellanic Cloud suddenly became so bright that it could be seen with the naked eye. Astronomers suspected that the star exploded as a supernova. Late-stage stars eject material that forms a ring before they explode as supernovas. The ring is at first invisible. However, following the explosion the light from the supernova reaches the ring. Astronomers observed the ring exactly one year after the phenomenon itself occurred. (a) Use geometry and the speed of light to estimate the distance to the supernova. The angular size of the ring is 0.81 arcseconds (b) How do you know whether your answer makes sense? (c) Use the width of the ring to estimate the uncertainty in the value of the distance.
