Immersed in cold water, the body loses heat to the external environment. Heat production rises in order to compensate for heat loss by shivering or exercise. The aim of this study was to determine whether heat production is more successfully maintained over a long period of time by physical activity than by shivering when a human being is wearing an(More)
Materials and methods: Two hundred and forty female and castrated-male crossbred pigs were randomly assigned to six treatment groups and housed in 20 pens of 12 pigs per pen (two pigs per treatment per pen). On each of Days -11, -9, -7, -5, and -3, two pigs per pen were administered tulathromycin intramuscularly at 2.5 mg per kg body weight. Pigs assigned(More)
This study was conducted in order to compare the metabolic responses of individuals exposed to long duration cold water immersion under two experimental conditions: 1) Heat loss compensated by shivering thermogenesis, and 2) heat loss compensated by intermittent periods of exercise. Nine subjects participated in two experimental trials 1) Subjects wearing(More)
