# Highest temperature humans can survive

44 °C (111.2 °F) or more – Almost certainly death will occur; however, people have been known to survive up to 46.5 °C (115.7 °F). 43 °C (109.4 °F) – Normally death, or there may be serious brain damage, continuous convulsions and shock. Cardio-respiratory collapse will likely occur.

## What’s the maximum and minimum temperature a human can survive?

If you are referring to the internal temperature of the human body, studies show most bodies can only survive up to 108 degrees Fahrenheit, or 42 degrees Celcius, as the proteins inside the body begin to die at around 105F.

## What is the hottest temperature in which humans can survive?

The hottest temperature that humans, and most animals and plants, can live their whole life at is about 40°C – like a hot bath. (Hot water boils at 100°C.)

## What is the highest temperature someone has survived?

On July 10, 1980, 52-year-old Willie Jones of Atlanta was admitted to the hospital with heatstroke and a temperature of 115 degrees Fahrenheit. He spent 24 days in the hospital and survived. Jones holds the Guinness Book of World Records honor for highest recorded body temperature.

## What are humans normal temp?

In babies and children, the average body temperature ranges from 97.9°F (36.6°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). Adults. Among adults, the average body temperature ranges from 97°F (36.1°C) to 99°F (37.2°C). Adults over age 65. In older adults, the average body temperature is lower than 98.6°F (36.2°C).

## What is the coldest temperature a human can survive?

When your core body temperature hits 91 degrees F (33 C), you might suffer amnesia. At 82 degrees F (28 C), you might lose consciousness. At 70 degrees F (21 C), you experience “profound,” deadly hypothermia. The coldest recorded body temperature a person has ever survived is 56.7 degrees F (13.2 degrees C), according to Atlas Obscura.

## What is the average temperature a human can live in?

According to a 1958 NASA report, people can live indefinitely in environments that range between roughly 40 degrees F and 95 degrees F (4 and 35 degrees C), if the latter temperature occurs at no more than 50 percent relative humidity.

## What is the highest internal temperature a person can survive?

Of course, what we’ve described is the highest internal temperature a person might survive. You might be wondering about how much external heat a person can tolerate. Live Science writes that most humans can endure about 10 minutes in 140-degree heat before suffering from hyperthermia, a lethal form of which is the aforementioned heat stroke.

## Can you survive in temp?

Yes, we can survive temperatures above 100 F (38 C) but surviving such temperatures requires continuous fluid intake. Since sweat evaporates quickly in an arid (dry) environment we tend to be unaware of how much water we’re losing. This leads to heat exhaustion, then heat stroke, then death.
