Obtaining an LM at a test frequency requires first determining the hearing threshold at that frequency to enable the LM to be reported in decibels sensation level (dB SL) (decibels above threshold).
Index j represents a sensation level in the scale and runs from 1 (very cold) to 7 (very hot).
The WRS is determined at the 40-dB sensation level (dBSL) with masking of the nontest ear when necessary.
(The steady outdoor overall skin temperature of the human subject was 29.8[degrees]C, the body overall sensation level was -0.7246, and the overall comfort level was -0.572 just before the person entered the room, as obtained from the Zhang thermal sensation model (Zhang 2003).
Tympanometry findings were normal in both ears, and the acoustic stapedial reflex thresholds were cochlear in sensation level in the left ear and normal in the right ear.
Examples can include a patient in a radiography department sitting up and hitting their head on X-ray equipment, a patient with reduced consciousness or sensation levels being left with a limb trapped, and a patient on the operating table having their arm rotated into an unnatural position resulting in actual or potential nerve damage.
Also there were arguments that the PMV model under-estimates individuals' thermal sensation levels in indoor spaces of hot and dry climatic conditions, Al-ajmi, (2010).
