This study investigated whether ambient temperature influences the distribution of blood as indicated by electrical impedance. In ten supine humans, the room temperature was raised from 14 to 35°C. Skin temperature and blood flow on the thorax increased by 3.6 (SD 0.3)°C and 84 (SD 40)%, respectively, and by 9.8 (SD 1)°C and 115 (SD 45)%, respectively, on the extremities (P < 0.05). Cardiac output remained unchanged, ear temperature and heart rate became elevated, and the oesophageal… CONTINUE READING
