The specific mechanisms by which skin blood flow increases in response to a rise in core body temperature via cutaneous active vasodilation are poorly understood. The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether the cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway contributes to active vasodilation during whole body heat stress (protocol 1; n = 9). A secondary goal was to verify that the COX pathway does not contribute to the cutaneous hyperemic response during local heating (protocol 2; n = 4). For both… CONTINUE READING
