Wearable sensors for personal temperature exposure assessments: A comparative study

ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, 180.

By: E. Bailey*, C. Fuhrmann*, J. Runkle n, S. Stevens n, M. Brown* & M. Sugg*

author keywords: Personal ambient temperature; Wearable sensors; Personal heat exposure; Sensor validation
MeSH headings : Environmental Exposure; Hot Temperature; Humans; Temperature; Wearable Electronic Devices; Weather
TL;DR: Assessment of the performance of multiple low-cost wearable sensors for measuring ambient temperature demonstrated significant differences in measured temperatures for sensors based on sensor type and placement on participants, which should be accounted for in future research.

Crisis support-seeking behavior and temperature in the United States: Is there an association in young adults and adolescents?

SCIENCE OF THE TOTAL ENVIRONMENT, 669, 400–411.

By: M. Sugg*, P. Dixon* & J. Runkle n

author keywords: Ambient temperature; Crisis Text Line; Adolescents; Crisis events; Mental health; Extreme heat
MeSH headings : Adolescent; Crisis Intervention / statistics & numerical data; Environmental Exposure / statistics & numerical data; Humans; Mental Health / statistics & numerical data; Temperature; United States / epidemiology; Young Adult
TL;DR: This study suggests that there is a significant association between high minimum or maximum temperatures and crisis help-seeking behaviors in young adults and adolescents in urban areas in the United States. (via Semantic Scholar)

Estimating personal ambient temperature in moderately cold environments for occupationally exposed populations

ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, 173, 497–507.

By: M. Sugg*, S. Stevens n & J. Runkle n

author keywords: Personal ambient temperature; Occupational health; Cold exposure; Wearable sensors
MeSH headings : Climate; Cold Temperature; Hot Temperature; Humans; Occupational Exposure / statistics & numerical data; Seasons; Temperature; Weather
TL;DR: A weak significant relationship was observed between personal ambient temperatures and weather station measurements highlighting that epidemiological researchers should be cautious when investigating the health effects of ambient temperatures based on fixed site measurements.

A systematic review of Mancozeb as a reproductive and developmental hazard

[Review of ]. ENVIRONMENT INTERNATIONAL, 99, 29–42.

By: J. Runkle n, J. Flocks*, J. Economos* & A. Dunlop*

author keywords: Mancozeb Reproductive health; Developmental toxicant; Office of Health Assessment and Translation; systematic review framework; Pesticide registration review
MeSH headings : Animals; Environmental Exposure; Female; Fertility / drug effects; Fetal Development / drug effects; Fungicides, Industrial / toxicity; Humans; Legislation, Drug; Male; Maneb / toxicity; Pregnancy; Reproduction / drug effects; Zineb / toxicity
