Modeled relationship between risk ratio of hospitalization/ ED visit four health outcome and same-day temperature metrics (heat stress & dehydration)/ lagged temperature metrics (acute kidney failure & CVD) during the summers of 2008 – 2012 in New York State. Specific points labeled on the curve identify the minimum risk temperature (MRT, purple) and the excess risk temperature (ERT, red), representing different conceptualizations of trigger points for intervention
