  • AbstractThe purpose of this work is to evaluate the capacity of the heat loss from the carotid artery in the human neck and thus, to provide indirect evidence of the existence of selective brain cooling in humans during hyperthermia. A theoretical model is developed to describe the effects of blood flow rate and vascular geometry on the thermal equilibration in the carotid artery based on the blood flow and the anatomical vascular geometry in the human neck. The potential for cooling of blood… CONTINUE READING
