Letter on the 2023 ACSM Expert Consensus Statement on Exertional Heat Illness
Letter to the Editor
This letter to the editor is in response to the recently (re)published 2023 ACSM Expert Consensus Statement on Exertional Heat Illness: Recognition, Management, and Return to Activity; the associated Corrigendum; and letter to the editor. The Corrigendum noted one author cast a dissenting vote of the final publication regarding four key issues she felt were inaccurate and unsuitable. The authors of this letter concur with her viewpoint and were surprised the dissenting author was not given a forum to defend her reasoning despite two authors being allowed to refute her dissension.
