skin blood flow


Also found in: Acronyms.

skin blood flow

blood flow through dermal vessels (see dermal plexus); inferred from normality of skin appearance, temperature and texture; identified quantitatively by e.g. Doppler flowmetry, and imaging modalities (capilllaroscopy, spectrophotometry, thermography, plethysmography and transcutaneous blood gas monitoring)

The results received with this technique indicate that a) without an elastic thigh bandage, turnover rates of capillary and post-capillary microperfusion in skin and subcutaneous fat tissue increase under physical exertion, b) skin blood flow decreases while subcutaneous blood flow remained constant in the subsequent recovery phase.

Both ageing and diabetes cause a reduction in resting blood flows and the response of the skin blood flow to a local heat source or a global heat stress.
His research interests include the cardiovascular and thermoregulatory responses to heat stress and dehydration, control of human skin blood flow and the biophysics of heat exchange between human beings and the environment.
Part of this difference is because the model's skin blood flow and sweat rate control equations were developed using core temperature measured in the esophagus that corresponds to arterial blood temperature rather than the more slowly responding rectal temperature.
