Abstract Prediction equations of shivering metabolism are critical to the development of models of thermoregulation during cold exposure. Although the intensity of maximal shivering has not yet been predicted, a peak shivering metabolic rate (Shivpeak) of five times the resting metabolic rate has been reported. A group of 15 subjects (including 4 women) [mean age 24.7 (SD 6) years, mean body mass 72.1 (SD 12) kg, mean height 1.76 (SD 0.1) m, mean body fat 22.3 (SD 7)% and mean maximal oxygen… CONTINUE READING
