The effect of altering skin-surface cooling speeds on vasoconstriction and shivering thresholds.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Both core and skin temperatures contribute to steady-state thermoregulatory control. Dynamic thermoregulatory responses trigger aggressive defenses against rapid thermal perturbations. These responses potentially complicate interpretation of thermoregulatory studies and could slow induction of therapeutic hypothermia. We thus tested the… (More)
