INTRODUCTION Heat stress significantly reduces orthostatic tolerance in humans. The mechanism(s) causing this response remain unknown. The purpose of this review article is to present data pertaining to the hypothesis that reduced orthostatic tolerance in heat stressed individuals is a result of heat stress induced alterations in baroflex function. METHODS In both normothermic and heat stressed conditions baroreflex responsiveness was assessed via pharmacological and non-pharmacological… CONTINUE READING
