Reproducibility of core temperature threshold for sweating onset in humans.


The control of sweating in humans has been described quantitatively in terms of skin and core temperatures (Tsk and Tcore, respectively). However, the precision with which features of the relationship between sweat rate and Tcore at a given Tsk can be reproduced in the short term is not known. We focused on the threshold Tcore. We held Tsk at 38 degrees C… (More)
