Creating a practical solution for reducing the temperature inside the PPE kit for health workers
What are its causes and effects?
Non-breathable PPE material
Body heat gets trap inside the PPE
High humid condition inside PPE kit decreasing rate of sweating hence affects natural cooling.
Extensive physical work with long shifts
Tropical climate of India and non AC wards
Cant use simple ventilation technique to cool down due to contamination issue
Rashes caused by rubbing of highly sweaty skin with PPE material
Affects the efficiency of doctors in their work
