Carbon dioxide emission from human skin was measured with a Luft Infrared Analyzer Emission rate was 3.4 × 10 -5 ml CO 2 /cm 2 /min for the arm and forearm combined 4.6 × 10 -5 ml CO 2 /cm 2 /min for the hand only, and 1.8 × 10 -5 ml CO 2 /cm 2 /min for the forearm only. Emission rate of the arm and forearm increased to 8.6 × 10 -5 CO 2 /cm 2 /min after vigorous exercise, and 9.1 × 10 -5 ml CO 2 /cm 2 /min after wetting the skin.
