Finger blood flow (BF) was measured by venous occlusion plethysmography using mercury-in-Silastic strain gauges during immersion of one hand in hot water (raised by steps of 2 degrees C every 10 min from 35 to 43 degrees C), the other being a control (kept immersed in water at 35 degrees C). The measurements were made in three different thermal states on… CONTINUE READING
