Is an excessive loss of water
Dehydration
Is a condition characterised by body heat loss that far exceeds body heat gain, resulting in subnormal body temperature
Hypothermia
Is the displacement of a bone at a joint
Dislocation
Is a condition characterised by breathing difficulty where there is a reduction in the width of the airways leading to the lungs, resulting in less air being available to them
Asthma
Are caused by overuse of specific body regions over long periods of time
Overuse Injuries
Is a training technique where an athlete experiences different climatic stressors, causing physiological adaptations to occur
Acclimatisation
Occur when a muscle or tendon is stretched or torn
Strains
Are caused by an external force applied to the body, such as a collision with a person or object.
Direct Injuries
Convection is the transfer of heat away from the skin by a moving uid such as an air current

Indirect Injuries
Refers to loss of heat in the form of infrared rays
Radiation
Cause damage to bones and teeth.
Hard Tissue Injuries
Transfer of heat from a body to an object by contact
Conduction
