To determine the effects of prolonged exposure to severe thermal stress on the subsequent ability to exercise in the heat, rats were exposed to a hot (35 degrees C) environment for 1, 2, 3, or 4 wk. At each of these weekly intervals the rats ran on a treadmill to hyperthermic exhaustion (41.5--43.0 degrees C), and tail-skin (Tt-sk) and rectal (Tre… CONTINUE READING
