The effect of graded ischaemia in the legs on the regulation of body temperature during steady-state exercise was investigated in seven healthy males. It was hypothesised that graded ischaemia in the working muscles increases heat storage within the muscles, which in turn potentiates sweat secretion during exercise. Blood perfusion in the working muscles(More)
Freezing cold injuries (frostbite) of the extremities are a common injury among alpinists participating in high altitude expeditions, particularly during inclement weather conditions. Anecdotally, a digit that has suffered frostbite may be at greater risk to future cold injuries. In this case study, we profile a 62-year-old elite alpinist who suffered(More)
OBJECTIVE To assess whether previous freezing cold injuries (FCI) would affect digit skin temperatures and rewarming rates during a follow-up cold stress test protocol. DESIGN Nonrandomized control trial. METHODS Twenty elite alpinists participated; alpinists with previous FCI requiring digit amputations (injured, INJ: n = 10 total, n = 8 male) were(More)
Methods Seven elite Slovenian alpinists completed a battery of physiological tests, including a cold stress test protocol previously used to determine changes in digit temperatures [1-3]. Briefly, alpinists immersed their hand or foot (random order) into a circulated, warm water bath (35°C) for 5 min to standardise skin temperature, and then in a cold water(More)
