Regional heat flux (intensity of heat flow rate, W m-2) was measured using heat flux transducers affixed to the skin surface at 14 sites on the left arm and 15 sites on both the left leg and the trunk (total of 44 locations) of human subjects during head-out immersion in water at temperatures between 11 and 28 degrees C. The heat flux data and skin(More)
Respiratory heat loss was measured during cold water (5-6 degrees C) excursions to depths of 300 m. Losses were computed with and without respiratory gas heating when wearing a diving helmet in current commercial and Service use. A magnitude of heat loss, sufficient to cause undue stress to the respiratory tract, was observed even with gas heating provided,(More)
