Studies have been conducted to evaluate the thermoregulatory, calorigenic, and peripheral vascular responses to cold of high altitude (HA) natives on their descent to sea level. Two groups of subjects (18 each), one representing high altitude (3500 m) natives and the other lowlanders, were exposed to a standard cold test at 10 degrees C wearing only shorts for 2 h. Their heart rate (HR), blood pressure (BP), oxygen consumption (VO2), oral temperature (Tor), mean weighted skin temperature (Ts… CONTINUE READING
