SummaryFrom measurements of the total osmotic concentration of sweat as a function of the sweating-rate the following conclusions were drawn:a)The primary fluid of the sweat has about the same total concentration as bloodplasma.b)The hypotonicity of sweat is caused by reabsorption of solute in the duct.c)The reabsorption of solute in the duct seems to be related to the concentration of the sweat itself and to the flow-rate. A hypothesis is given to explain this relationship.

TLDR
In patients with cystic fibrosis this type of reabsorption does not occur or only at a very slow rate, so this second process should be demostrated to exist also in the patients. Expand
Hydrogen ion and electrolyte excretion of the single human sweat gland
TLDR
From the unaltered lactate concentrations after acetazolamide in final sweat it is concluded that the postulated H-Na-exchange mechanism consumes minimal amounts of energy which can not be detected with the applied method. Expand
Die Kationenausscheidung der großen Speicheldrüsen des Menschen
TLDR
Results indicate that Na resorption and probably also K secretion, are governed by active transport mechanisms in the duct epithelium, which confirms earlier observations in the submandibular and parotid gland and demonstrates unequivocally that the sublingual saliva in man unlike that in cat and dog is poor in Na. Expand
Aminosäurenverluste im menschlichen Schweiß
TLDR
The quantitative results obtained for the amino acid excretions during 12 min of sauna bathing suggest that persons exposed to hard, physical activity and/or high environmental temperatures have quite equal amino acid losses in sweat and in 24 h urine. Expand
Über die ausscheidung der freien aminosäuren im menschlichen ekkrinen schweiß
TLDR
As compared to men, women had an increased excretion of all the examined amino acids in the sweat from the face, except for cystine, and Statistically significant higher excretion was seen within this sex-specific comparison. Expand
A comparison between the technical absorbent and ventilated capsule methods for measuring local sweat rate.
TLDR
The TA method is supported as a reliable alternative for measuring the rate of sweat appearance on the skin surface during steady-state and nonsteady-state sweating using large and small sample surface areas on the forearm and midback. Expand
Influence of sex and growth hormone deficiency on sweating.
TLDR
The sweat secretion pattern in children shows a significant sex difference and the change in sweat excretion rate from childhood to adulthood showed a difference between the sexes. Expand

Studies on the combined use of measurements of sweat electrolyte composition and rate of sweating as an index of adrenal cortical activity.
TLDR
A method for taking certain non-endocrine factors into consideration in the utilization of sweat electrolyte measurements as an index of hormonal activity is described and investigations of adrenal cortical function based on this newly developed index are presented. Expand
The effect of acetyl-beta-methylcholine on the structure and function of the eccrine sweat gland.
TLDR
It is proposed that the depression in sweat glands is due to the development of a neuroglandular block, a desensitization of receptor sites on the eccrine sweat gland by large doses of neurohumor. Expand
