    Outlines some of the principal features of the physiology of sweat secretion. Significance of eccrine sweating to fluid and electrolyte homeostasis; Distribution of generalized secretions from eccrine sweat glands over the body surface; Rate of sweating in man; Role of the hypothalamus in the...

  • Thermoregulatory and Physiological Responses of Najdi Sheep Exposed to Environmental Heat Load Prevailing in Saudi Arabia. Al-Haidary, A. A.; Aljumaah, R. S.; Alshaikh, M. A.; Abdoun, K. A.; Samara, E. M.; Okab, A. B.; Alfuraiji, M. M. // Pakistan Veterinary Journal;Oct-Dec2012, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p515 

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the thermoregulatory and physiological responses of Najdi rams raised under hot summer conditions prevailing in Kingdom Saudi Arabia. The core temperature (Tcore) showed circadian rhythm characterized by biphasic achrophases, which were associated with...

  • The reliability of adolescent thermoregulatory responses during a heat acclimation protocol. Brokenshire, Caroline S.; Armstrong, Neil; Williams, Craig A. // Journal of Sports Science & Medicine;Dec2009, Vol. 8 Issue 4, p689 

    This study investigated the between trial variation of thermoregulatory measures during a heat acclimation protocol. Eight 14-16 y old boys completed three bouts of 20-min cycling at 45 % peak VO2 in a hot environment (35.1 ± 1.2 °C and 46.4 ± 1.0 % relative humidity) on two occasions...

  • Body cooling attenuates the decrease in maximal oxygen uptake associated with cardiovascular drift during heat stress. Wingo, Jonathan; Cureton, Kirk // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Aug2006, Vol. 98 Issue 1, p97 

    Previous research suggests cardiovascular drift (CV drift) is associated with decreased maximal oxygen uptake $$\left( \dot{\hbox{V}}\hbox{O}_{\rm 2max} \right)$$ during heat stress, but more research manipulating CV drift with subsequent measurement of $$\dot{\hbox{V}}\hbox{O}_{\rm 2max}$$ is...

  • Effects of Climate Variations on the Mechanisms of Thermoregulation in Sheep in the Southern State of Piaui, Brazil. Monteiro Luz, Carlos Syllas; Lima Fonseca, Wéverton José; Barros Junior, Cicero Pereira; e Sousa, Gioto Ghiarone Terto; Guimaraes Campelo, José Elivalto; Campêlo Araujo, André; Mendes Araujo, Johnny Iglesias; Silva Vogado, Gleissa Mayone; dos Santos, Tatiano Ribeiro; de Sousa Junior, Severino Cavalcante // Journal of Agricultural Science (1916-9752);Oct2014, Vol. 6 Issue 10, p169 

    The sheep breeds commercially exploited in northeastern Brazil are mostly hardy, but even being considered adapted animals, they suffer physiologically to the climatic conditions of this region. The objective of this study was to evaluate the variation of physiological parameters of animals and...

  • DEET insect repellent: effects on thermoregulatory sweating and physiological strain. Kenefick, Robert; Cheuvront, Samuel; Ely, Brett; Palombo, Laura; Sawka, Michael; Kenefick, Robert W; Cheuvront, Samuel N; Ely, Brett R; Palombo, Laura J; Sawka, Michael N // European Journal of Applied Physiology;Dec2011, Vol. 111 Issue 12, p3061 

    Insect repellents (e.g. N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide or DEET) applied to the skin can potentially interfere with sweat production and evaporation, thus increasing physiological strain during exercise-heat stress. The purpose was to determine the impact of 33% DEET lotion on sweating responses, whole...
