At this point, the core temperature was recorded as the thermoregulatory vasoconstriction threshold.
It reduces vasoconstriction and shivering threshold; thus, it acts on central thermoregulatory system.
The data of the thermoregulatory behavior, C[T.sub.min], C[T.sub.max], Oxygen Routine Consumption and TIMR were analyzed by the Kruskal-Wallis nonparametric test followed by a Dunn's multiple comparisons post-hoc test.
Possible thermoregulatory functions of the internal vertebral venous plexus in man and various other mammals: evidence from comparative anatomical studies.
And as their bodies have less developed thermoregulatory systems, they are more vulnerable to heat stress than adults.
To avoid heat stress, the thermoregulatory mechanisms in poultry are normally stimulated above the thermoneutral zone of 24AdegC (Celik et al., 2004; Chand et al., 2017).
As their bodies are still developing thermoregulatory systems, they are more vulnerable to 'heat stress', a phenomenon in which the body absorbs too much heat, he stated.
(6) Because shivering is a thermoregulatory reflex triggered by core temperature being lower than the hypothalamic set point, and because mean skin temperature contributes 20% to the control of shivering, the application of forced-air warming may ameliorate shivering.
When under anesthesia, the patient's thermoregulatory system loses its ability to control core temperature.
In this article, we report on an hypothermic MS patient and review the literature on this subject, focusing on exploring whether extrahypothalamic dysfunctions along the thermoregulatory network may contribute to the development of this complication.
"Hot flushes are the end result of multiple factors that narrow the thermoregulatory zone, increasing sensitivity to subtle changes in core temperature.
