Thermal insulation and shivering threshold in Greek sponge divers.

Abstract

Sublingual temperature (Tor), average skin temperature (Tsk), and skin heat flow (Hsk) were determined in a field study for six Greek sponge divers and seven nondiving controls during head-out immersions at water temperature of 21 degrees C. Wetsuits kept Tsk at 22-28 degrees C for 1-3 h until Tor fell to 36.5-35.5 degrees C and violent shivering [metabolic… (More)
