Acute effects of sauna bathing on cardiovascular function

TLDR
It is demonstrated that sauna bathing for 30 min has beneficial effects on arterial stiffness, BP, and some blood-based biomarkers, and these findings may provide new insights underlying the emerging associations betweensauna bathing and reduced risk of cardiovascular outcomes.

Some cardiovascular and metabolic effects of repeated sauna bathing.

TLDR
Serum K, Na and Fe were significantly decreased on the 3rd and 7th day indicating that special attention should be given to the electrolyte balance in long-lasting intense heat exposure.

Cardiovascular and Thermal Response to Dry-Sauna Exposure in Healthy Subjects

TLDR
The aim of this experiment was to comprehensively analyse cardiovascular and autonomic changes that result from an increase in core body temperature during sauna bath.

The Thermal Effects of Water Immersion on Health Outcomes: An Integrative Review

TLDR
This review investigates the health effects of water immersion, a form of hydrotherapy, and the mechanisms by which the properties of water elicit such an effect, and finds that warm and cold water immersion affects the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems, respectively.

COMPARISON OF PHYSIOLOGICAL REACTIONS AND PHYSIOLOGICAL STRAIN IN HEALTHY MEN UNDER HEAT STRESS IN DRY AND STEAM HEAT SAUNAS

TLDR
It can be concluded that due to high humidity and reduction of thermoregulation mechanisms, the wet sauna is more stressful for the organism than the dry sauna, where the temperature is higher with low humidity.

Clinical Effects of Regular Dry Sauna Bathing: A Systematic Review

TLDR
Regular dry sauna bathing has potential health benefits but more data of higher quality is needed on the frequency and extent of adverse side effects and the specific clinical populations who are most likely to benefit.

Passive heat therapy improves endothelial function, arterial stiffness and blood pressure in sedentary humans

TLDR
The results show for the first time that heat therapy has widespread and robust effects on vascular function, and as such, could be a viable treatment option for improving cardiovascular health in a variety of patient populations, particularly those with limited exercise tolerance and/or capabilities.

Sauna Bathing and Incident Hypertension: A Prospective Cohort Study

TLDR
Regular sauna bathing is associated with reduced risk of hypertension, which may be a mechanism underlying the decreased cardiovascular risk associated with sauna use.
