Mean skin temperature during anaesthesia: an assessment of formulae in the supine surgical patient.

  • C. Shanks

    British journal of anaesthesia
  • 1975
TLDR
The mean skin temperature was calculated from measurements made in 22 patients under general anaesthesia using a system involving 15 temperature sites on the skin, each given a weighting factor in proportion to the fraction of total surface area which it represented.

It was proposed to calculate a formula for mean skin temperature weighted with both the heat transfer coefficient and skin surface area ratios. Calculating the mean skin temperature based on the heat

The Use of Infrared Thermography in the Study of Sport and Exercise Physiology

TLDR
This chapter aims to provide a general overview on the literature about the study of the skin temperature response to exercise assessed by means of IRT and its relationship with other thermoregulatory variables, exercise characteristics and performance factors.

Measurement of mean skin temperature of clothed persons in cool environments

  • 2004
TLDR
The precision with which mean skin temperature could be estimated from some few points on clothed persons in a cool environment was studied, and a weighting formula involving only four local skin temperatures was selected to be recommended for use in field investigations.

Fundamental Study of Weighting Factors for Calculating Mean Skin Temperature

It was proposed to calculate a formula for mean skin temperature weighted with both the heat transfer coefficient and skin surface area ratios. Calculating the mean skin temperature based on the heat

Skin temperature, thermal comfort, sweating, clothing and activity of men sledging in Antarctica

TLDR
Three men were studied while dog‐sledging 320 km in 12 days in Antarctica and observations were made of medial thigh skin temperature, thermal comfort, sweating, clothing, activity and environmental conditions.

Modelling skin temperature of a human exercising in an outdoor environment

Skin temperature monitoring is an important component when estimating thermoregulatory responses due to heat exchange at the skin surface. The aim of this study is to improve the accuracy of mean

Sex differences in human thermoregulatory response to cold.

TLDR
The pattern of changes in rectal temperature during cold exposure varied with subjects and seasons, while mean skin temperature always decreased gradually over time.
