Complement fixation titers in cattle following intranasal inoculation of Hemophilus somnus. (1/4811)

Five bulls were inoculated intranasally with a live culture of Hemophilus somnus originally isolated from a clinical case of Hemophilus septicemia. Preinoculation and postinoculation blood samples were taken at weekly intervals for nine weeks for measuring complement fixation titers and daily postinoculation temperatures were taken for one week. Three animals had transient fever and slight lethargy was observed in two animals had a transitory rise in complement fixation titers in the second to fifth weeks postexposure while one animal which had been seronegative on preinoculation testing produced little serological response to the organism.

Correlation of temperature and toxicity in murine studies of staphylococcal enterotoxins and toxic shock syndrome toxin 1. (2/4811)

This study describes a quick (<12 h) assay for detecting temperature decreases in BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice injected intraperitoneally (i.p. ) with staphylococcal enterotoxin A (SEA), SEB, or SEC3 or toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 and a potentiating dose of lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Toxin-specific antisera effectively neutralized the temperature fluctuations in this model. Orally administered SEA or SEB (50 microg/animal), with or without LPS, did not have an effect on temperature or lethality. Versus wild-type mice, transgenic knockout mice lacking the p55 receptor for tumor necrosis factor (TNF) or gamma interferon were protected against an i.p. challenge of SEA plus LPS.

Development of muscarinic analgesics derived from epibatidine: role of the M4 receptor subtype. (3/4811)

Epibatidine, a neurotoxin isolated from the skin of Epipedobates tricolor, is an efficacious antinociceptive agent with a potency 200 times that of morphine. The toxicity of epibatidine, because of its nonspecificity for both peripheral and central nicotinic receptors, precludes its development as an analgesic. During the synthesis of epibatidine analogs we developed potent antinociceptive agents, typified by CMI-936 and CMI-1145, whose antinociception, unlike that of epibatidine, is mediated via muscarinic receptors. Subsequently, we used specific muscarinic toxins and antagonists to delineate the muscarinic receptor subtype involved in the antinociception evoked by these agents. Thus, the antinociception produced by CMI-936 and CMI-1145 is inhibited substantially by 1) intrathecal injection of the specific muscarinic M4 toxin, muscarinic toxin-3; 2) intrathecally administered pertussis toxin, which inhibits the G proteins coupled to M2 and M4 receptors; and 3) s.c. injection of the M2/M4 muscarinic antagonist himbacine. These results demonstrate that the antinociception elicited by these epibatidine analogs is mediated via muscarinic M4 receptors located in the spinal cord. Compounds that specifically target the M4 receptor therefore may be of substantial value as alternative analgesics to the opiates.  (+info)

Pharmacological studies on root bark of mulberry tree (Morus alba L.) (4/4811)

Pharmacological studies were done on the root bark of mulberry tree and pharmacological effects were compared with the clinical effects of "Sohakuhi" in Chinese medicine. n-Butanol- and water-soluble fractions of mulberry root had similar effects except for those on the cadiovascular system. Both fractions showed cathartic, analgesic, diuretic, antitussive, antiedema, sedative, anticonvulsant, and hypotensive actions in mice, rats, guinea pigs and dogs. There appears to be a correlation between the experimental pharmacological results and the clinical applications of mulberry root found in the literature on Chinese medicine.  (+info)

Modulation of the thermoregulatory sweating response to mild hyperthermia during activation of the muscle metaboreflex in humans. (5/4811)

1. To investigate the effect of the muscle metaboreflex on the thermoregulatory sweating response in humans, eight healthy male subjects performed sustained isometric handgrip exercise in an environmental chamber (35 C and 50 % relative humidity) at 30 or 45 % maximal voluntary contraction (MVC), at the end of which the blood circulation to the forearm was occluded for 120 s. The environmental conditions were such as to produce sweating by increase in skin temperature without a marked change in oesophageal temperature. 2. During circulatory occlusion after handgrip exercise at 30 % MVC for 120 s or at 45 % MVC for 60 s, the sweating rate (SR) on the chest and forearm (hairy regions), and the mean arterial blood pressure were significantly above baseline values (P < 0.05). There were no changes from baseline values in the oesophageal temperature, mean skin temperature, or SR on the palm (hairless regions). 3. During the occlusion after handgrip exercise at 30 % MVC for 60 s and during the occlusion alone, none of the measured parameters differed from baseline values. 4. It is concluded that, under mildly hyperthermic conditions, the thermoregulatory sweating response on the hairy regions is modulated by afferent signals from muscle metaboreceptors.  (+info)

Effects of truss mattress upon sleep and bed climate. (6/4811)

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a truss mattress upon sleep and bed climate. The truss mattress which has been designed to decrease the pressure and bed climate humidity was tested. Six healthy female volunteers with a mean age of 23.3 years, served as subjects. The experiment was carried out under two conditions: a truss mattress (T) and a futon (F) (Japanese bedding). The ambient temperature and relative humidity were controlled at 19-20 degrees C, and RH 50-60% respectively. Sleep was monitored by an EEG machine and the rectal temperature, skin temperature and bed climate were also measured continuously. Subjective evaluations of bed and sleep were obtained before and after the recording sessions. No significant difference was observed in the sleep parameters and time spent in each sleep stage. Rectal temperature was significantly lower in T than F. Although there was no significant difference in bed climate over the T/F, the temperature under T/F was significantly higher in T. No significant difference was observed in subjective sleep evaluation. The subjective feeling of the mattress was significantly warmer in F than T before sleep. These results suggest that although T does not disturb the sleep parameters and the bed climate is maintained at the same level as with F, it may affect rectal temperature which can be due to low thermal insulation.  (+info)

Stroke volume decline during prolonged exercise is influenced by the increase in heart rate. (7/4811)

This study determined whether the decline in stroke volume (SV) during prolonged exercise is related to an increase in heart rate (HR) and/or an increase in cutaneous blood flow (CBF). Seven active men cycled for 60 min at approximately 57% peak O2 uptake in a neutral environment (i.e., 27 degrees C, <40% relative humidity). They received a placebo control (CON) or a small oral dose (i.e., approximately 7 mg) of the beta1-adrenoceptor blocker atenolol (BB) at the onset of exercise. At 15 min, HR and SV were similar during CON and BB. From 15 to 55 min during CON, a 13% decline in SV was associated with an 11% increase in HR and not with an increase in CBF. CBF increased mainly from 5 to 15 min and remained stable from 20 to 60 min of exercise in both treatments. However, from 15 to 55 min during BB, when the increase in HR was prevented by atenolol, the decline in SV was also prevented, despite a normal CBF response (i.e., similar to CON). Cardiac output was similar in both treatments and stable throughout the exercise bouts. We conclude that during prolonged exercise in a neutral environment the decline in SV is related to the increase in HR and is not affected by CBF.  (+info)

The physiological strain index applied to heat-stressed rats. (8/4811)

A physiological strain index (PSI) based on heart rate (HR) and rectal temperature (Tre) was recently suggested to evaluate exercise-heat stress in humans. The purpose of this study was to adjust PSI for rats and to evaluate this index at different levels of heat acclimation and training. The corrections of HR and Tre to modify the index for rats are as follows: PSI = 5 (Tre t - Tre 0). (41.5 - Tre 0)-1 + 5 (HRt - HR0). (550 - HR0)-1, where HRt and Tre t are simultaneous measurements taken at any time during the exposure and HR0 and Tre 0 are the initial measurements. The adjusted PSI was applied to five groups (n = 11-14 per group) of acclimated rats (control and 2, 5, 10, and 30 days) exposed for 70 min to a hot climate [40 degrees C, 20% relative humidity (RH)]. A separate database representing two groups of acclimated or trained rats was also used and involved 20 min of low-intensity exercise (O2 consumption approximately 50 ml. min-1. kg-1) at three different climates: normothermic (24 degrees C, 40% RH), hot-wet (35 degrees C, 70% RH), and hot-dry (40 degrees C, 20% RH). In normothermia, rats also performed moderate exercise (O2 consumption approximately 60 ml. min-1. kg-1). The adjusted PSI differentiated among acclimation levels and significantly discriminated among all exposures during low-intensity exercise (P < 0.05). Furthermore, this index was able to assess the individual roles played by heat acclimation and exercise training.  (+info)

AIM: To investigate the association of temperature on arrival to hospital after out-of-hospital-cardiac arrest (OHCA) with the primary outcome of mortality, in the targeted temperature management (TTM) trial.. METHODS: The TTM trial randomized 939 patients to TTM at 33 or 36°C for 24h. Patients were categorized according to their recorded body temperature on arrival and also categorized to groups of patients being actively cooled or passively rewarmed.. RESULTS: OHCA patients having a temperature ≤34.0°C on arrival at hospital had a significantly higher mortality compared to the OHCA patients with a higher temperature on arrival. A low body temperature on arrival was associated with a longer time to return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC) and duration of transport time to hospital. Patients who were actively cooled or passively rewarmed during the first 4h had similar mortality. In a multivariate logistic regression model mortality was significantly related to time from OHCA to ROSC, time ...
Body temperature varies throughout the day, depending on the outside temperature, your level of activity and what you eat and drink. Temperature can vary due to emotional and psychological reactions, illness and a range of other factors. Heres some more information about your body temperature and what factors affect it.. Normal Body Temperature. A body temperature of 98.6 degrees F is considered to be normal. Most people have a normal body temperature of between 97.6 and 99.6 degrees F when the temperature is measured orally. Measuring the body temperature rectally often produces a slightly higher reading. Measuring under the armpit may produce a somewhat lower reading. Slight fluctuations in normal body temperature occur throughout the day, depending on a number of factors.. Factors that Can Affect Body Temperature. There are a wide range of factors that can affect your body temperature. Hot and cold weather can affect your body temperature somewhat, as can illness, physical activity, hot ...

Accurate measurement of core body temperature at the scene of an accident is critical for both diagnosis and treatment/triage decisions for hypothermic patients. Measurement in the lower third of the oesophagus is considered the gold standard of CT reading, but invasive and hardly applicable with a conscious patient. Tympanic membrane sensors for CT reading have been widely tested by may be unreliable in extreme environmental temperatures. Similarly, the Double Sensor device is a non-invasive device and is promising for prehospital use but has not been sufficiently verified under very cold and hot environmental conditions. Furthermore, comparisons of different non-invasive methods with oesophageal measurement in extreme conditions are lacking. The objective of these studies is to compare different techniques of core body temperature measurement with exposure to cold and hot environments ...
OBJECTIVES: To determine the range for normal body temperature in the general population of Pakistan and to determine if any age, sex and ambient temperature related variations exist in body temperature. Moreover, to compare how much axillary temperature differs from oral temperature measurements. METHODS: Oral as well as left and right axillary temperature recordings were made using an ordinary mercury-in-glass thermometer in 200 healthy individuals accompanying patients at various clinics at the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation (SIUT) between mid-May to mid-June 2006. Data analysis was done using Epi Info version 3.3. RESULTS: The range for Normal Oral Temperatures fell between 97 degrees F to 99.8 degrees F (mean 98.4 degrees F). There were no significant age related (p=0.68) and ambient temperature related variations (p=0.51) in body temperature, but women had slightly higher normal temperatures than men (mean 98.5 degrees F vs. 98.3 degrees F; p=0.01). A wide variation existed in
Raising body temperature by a few degrees may produce antidepressant effects as the bodys cooling mechanisms kick in. At the US Psychiatric and Mental Health Congress in 2015, researcher Charles Raison described a study comparing the effects of exposing participants to a special heating coil in a tent that retained the heat until their body temperatures increased by a few degrees to those of a sham procedure that did not raise body temperature. Those participants whose body temperature was increased had a lower body temperature the following day, and their depression improved as their bodies cooled. These improvements lasted six weeks or more.. Depressed patients tend to have elevated body temperatures. Raison suggests that raising body temperatures even more prompts the bodys cooling mechanisms to compensate, bringing cooling activity to normal levels from the skin to the brain and improving depression.. ...
Alzheimers disease (AD) is characterised, not only by cognitive deficits and neuropathological changes, but also by several non-cognitive behavioural symptoms that can lead to a poorer quality of life. Circadian disturbances in core body temperature and physical activity are reported in AD patients, although the cause and consequences of these changes are unknown. We therefore characterised circadian patterns of body temperature and activity in male triple transgenic AD mice (3xTgAD) and non-transgenic (Non-Tg) control mice by remote radiotelemetry. At 4 months of age daily temperature rhythms were phase advanced and by 6 months of age an increase in mean core body temperature and amplitude of temperature rhythms were observed in 3xTgAD mice. No differences in daily activity rhythms were seen in 4-9-month-old 3xTgAD mice, but by 10 months of age an increase in mean daily activity and the amplitude of activity profiles for 3xTgAD mice were detected. At all ages (4-10 months), 3xTgAD mice ...
Objective and Background:Cognitive function can be impaired after passive heat exposure and with an elevation in core body temperature (Tcore). This study examined the dynamic correlation among passive heat exposure, Tcore, and cognition.Methods:We gave the Attention Network Test of alerting, orient
The ups and downs of core body temperature can signal a range of health conditions. The most obvious is an infection, which causes a fever. But temperature fluctuations can also indicate insomnia, fatigue, metabolic function and depression.. Current wearable sensors can detect skin temperature, but this can change depending on how hot or cold an environment is. And oral and other thermometers that measure core body temperature are designed only for periodic use and arent meant to be strapped on for constant detection. So Ali Javey and colleagues set out to develop a convenient device to monitor core body temperature in real-time on a continuous basis.. The researchers integrated data processing circuits, a wireless module and an infrared sensor, which detects ear (and thus core body) temperature, in a 3-D printed device. The disk-like structure covers the ear and can be customized to fit the contours of a persons ear for a comfortable fit. To ensure that users can still hear clearly while ...
When you body temperature falls below 35ºC (95ºF) then this is considered to be hypothermia. It can be classified as mild or severe. Mild hypothermia is a temperature between 35ºC (95ºF) and 32ºC (89.6ºF). Severe hypothermia is a body temperature below 32ºC (89.6ºF).However, the first signs and symptoms of hypothermia becomes evident once the body temperature drops below 36.5ºC (97.7ºF).. The body temperature is maintained by several factors that are regulated by a part of the brain known as the hypothalamus. If the body temperature rises too high, then the hypothalamus initiates cooling mechisms. Blood vessels on the skin surface widen so that heat can be passed out from the blood into the environment. Sweat is released on the skin surface to help cool down the body.. When the body temperature drops too low then the hypothalamus has to find ways too warm the body. This is done by increasing metabolic activity so that more heat is generated by the body. For example, shivering is an ...

The purpose of this study was to investigate normal body temperature in adult men and women. A systematic review of data was performed. Searches were carried out in MEDLINE, CINAHL, and manually from identified articles reference lists. Studies from 1935 to 1999 were included. Articles were classified as (1) strong, (2) fairly strong and (3) weak evidence. When summarizing studies with strong or fairly strong evidence the range for oral temperature was 33.2-38.2░C, rectal: 34.4-37.8░C, tympanic: 35.4-37.8░C and axillary: 35.5-37.0░C. The range in oral temperature for men and women, respectively, was 35.7-37.7 and 33.2-38.1░C, in rectal 36.7-37.5 and 36.8-37.1░C, and in tympanic 35.5-37.5 and 35.7-37.5░C. The ranges of normal body temperature need to be adjusted, especially for the lower values. When assessing body temperature it is important to take place of measurement and gender into consideration. Studies with random samples are needed to confirm the range of normal body ...
The effect of ambient temperature (AT) and feeding status on body temperature (BT) were investigated in broilers of the three naked neck genotypes (Na/Na, Na/na and na/na). From 29 to 49 d of age, chicks were reared in a temperature-controlled chamber, where AT alternated daily between 24 and 32 C. At Day 47, all birds were deprived of feed for 12 h at 32 C, followed by 12 h of ad libitum intake at 24 C, then 12 h of ad libitum intake at 32 C, and finally feed deprivation for 12 h at 24 C. Body temperature was measured at the end of each of these 12-h periods. Body weight, feed consumption, feather coverage, and breast yield were determined. The Na/na and Na/Na birds had 20 and 40% less feather mass than the na/na birds. The three genotypes had similar BW at Day 49, but the naked neck birds had a higher breast yield. At high AT, BT was positively associated with feather mass of the three naked neck genotypes. The highest BT was exhibited by the fully feathered birds, and the lowest by the ...
Results: Abdominal temperatures were low throughout the 12-hour study period (mean 35.17-36.68 1C). Seven of 10 infants had significant correlations between abdominal temperature and heart rate. Heart rates above the 75th percentile were associated with low and high abdominal temperatures; heart rates less than the 25th percentile were associated with very low abdominal temperatures. The extent to which abdominal temperature was abnormally low was related to the extent to which the heart rate trended away from normal in 6 of the 10 infants. Optimal temperature control point that maximized normal heart rate observations for each infant was between 36.8 1C and 37 1C ...
The study was conducted to ascertain the body temperature and resting behaviours of three strains of egg-type pullet chickens (exotic [ISA brown], improved native [Alpha] and Native chickens). A total of 90 egg-type pullets aged 12 months and their day old, non-inbred progeny pullets numbering 90 were used for the study. Both the parents and their progeny were housed at 10 per pen and 3 replicates per genotype and their progeny. The parents were fed and watered ad-libitum between 52 - 63 weeks period of the experiment. The progeny of each genotype were kept for 0 - 12 weeks, during which time, chicks were fed and watered ad-libitum as in the parents and data were collected. During this period, body temperature and resting behaviour were collected with respect to the birds and their progeny. The result showed no significant (P , 0.05) genotype effects in the body temperature of both the parents and their progeny. This implies that neither progeny nor generation had effect on body temperature. The ...
Having a baby is a gift for a mother the most beautiful.Moreover, if it can give birth to a normal delivery, so it feels how the fight to be called as a mother. Because it is still experiencing growth and development, the babys body does not easily understand the condition. However, you can control it by knowing the range of normal body temperature normal baby A baby had a temperature in the range of a maximum of 37 degrees, a figure that is quite fantastic is not it? This figure is above the minimum temperature of the adult body. However, you should be wary if a baby has exceeded the lift ...
For example, we were able to continuously monitor the core body temperature of a team of 10 firefighters responding to a simulated high rise building fire, where temperatures in the firehouse exceeded 200°C (at 2 m above floor) and visibility was almost zero due to smoke. We were able to stand at a safe distance outside the firehouse and continue to monitor the core body temperature of all the participants during the scenario, ensuring their well-being during the simulation. Firefighters who became too warm during the trials could then be safely withdrawn and cooled, thereby minimizing the danger of developing any heat illness during the scenario. This was an essential ethics requirement for our study, and would not have been possible without the RF capabilities of the HQ Inc. CorTemp system.. ...

Organisms from yeast to rodents to humans all benefit from cutting calories. In simple organisms, restricting calories can double or even triple lifespan. Its not yet clear just how much longer calorie restriction might help humans live, but those who practice the strict diet hope to survive past 100.. Those on calorie restriction cut their daily caloric intake by 25 percent or more, but they also carefully track vitamins and nutrients in the diet in order to avoid malnutrition. In this study, all of those in the group practicing calorie restriction were members of the CR Society, and they refer to themselves as CRONies (Calorie Restriction with Optimal Nutrition).. A persons core body temperature is the temperature at which all of the functions in the body can operate with maximum efficiency. The temperature of the human body is not uniform throughout, and internal readings tend to be higher than those taken closer to the skin. Although the ideal core body temperature is considered to be 98.6 ...

Temperature control (thermoregulation) is part of a homeostatic mechanism that keeps the organism at optimum operating temperature, as the temperature affects the rate of chemical reactions. In humans, the average internal temperature is 37.0 °C (98.6 °F), though it varies among individuals. However, no person always has exactly the same temperature at every moment of the day. Temperatures cycle regularly up and down through the day, as controlled by the persons circadian rhythm. The lowest temperature occurs about two hours before the person normally wakes up. Additionally, temperatures change according to activities and external factors.[9][unreliable medical source?] In addition to varying throughout the day, normal body temperature may also differ as much as 0.5 °C (0.9 °F) from one day to the next, so that the highest or lowest temperatures on one day will not always exactly match the highest or lowest temperatures on the next day. Normal human body temperature varies slightly from ...
Hypothermia is a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature. Normal body temperature is around 98.6 F (37 C). Hypothermia (hi-poe-THUR-me-uh) occurs as your body temperature passes below 95 F (35 C).
Rhythmicity in core body temperature has been extensively studied in humans and laboratory animals but much less in farm animals. Extending the study of rhythmicity of body temperature to farm animals is important not only from a comparative perspective but also from an economic perspective, as greater knowledge of this process can lead to improvements in livestock production practices. In this study in cattle, we investigated the maturation of the daily rhythm of body temperature in newborn calves, characterized the parameters of the daily rhythm in young cows, and studied the oscillation in body temperature associated with the estrous cycle in adult cows. We found that the daily rhythm of body temperature is absent at birth but matures fully during the first two months of life. The mature rhythm had a mean level of 38.3°C, a range of excursion of 1.4°C, and was more robust than that of any mammalian species previously studied (90% of maximal robustness). Sexually mature cows also exhibited a robust
Sweating excessively is possible while your body remains cool. Maximum menopausal women experience hot flushes. After all, the normal temperature is designed for a reason - to maintain the proper function of the organs and the systems. Go to the doctor right away if you experience low body temperature but feel hot, especially if it is happening constantly and often. However, it is possible that you may experience a drop in temperature. It is extremely sensitive to changes in core body temperature. Be aware if your body temperature is below the normal standard. Very often women associate low body temperature and sweating to hot flushes that they experience during menopause, without realizing that the problem is caused by their thyroid gland. It requires urgent medical attention and treatment. Well, thats the same gland. Just like high body temperature, too low temperature isnt right. its 97.8 to 98.4 . It may seem harmless but low body temperature may be a sign that your body is experiencing ...

Many patients become hypothermic after severe injury due to environmental exposure during transport. These patients also have decreased thermoregulation due to blood loss. Normal core body temperature is defined as 37 deg C and core body temperature below 35 deg C and above 40 deg C is defined as hypothermia and hyperthermia respectively. Studies have shown much better outcomes for patients with either trauma or hypothermia compared to patients with both trauma and hypothermia. Additionally, studies have shown that decreasing the hyperthermic patient s core body temperature rapidly to 38 deg C lowers the incidence of complications and the risk of death. Currently, one of the most effective treatments for dysthermic patients involves the use of active convective/conductive heating/cooling devices. However, current devices require heavy or bulky equipment not suitable for military applications. Rocky Research and University of Nevada School of Medicine (UNSOM) have developed a novel Portable Body
EXERCISES CAUSES A RAISE IN BODY TEMPERATURE - It has been found that even a small shift of a few degrees in body temperature makes a difference for preventing and fighting infections. Infectious agents cant survive in environments where the bodys core temperature is elevated on a regular basis. In addition, Science Daily claims that elevated body temperature helps certain types of immune cells work better. On the flip side, too much strenuous exercise while sick could have the opposite effect on the immune system.. - EXERCISE MAKES YOU SWEAT: When you exercise, you sweat. Sweating releases waste products, lowering the amount of infectious agents in your body, and making you less prone to sickness.. If you want to decrease your chances of getting sick, or even help cure a sickness you already have; increase your body temperature on a consistent basis and make sure to sweat.. This is also how our body naturally fights a sickness. Our body reacts with a fever, raising the body temperature ...
Symptoms of hypothermia include shivering, slurred speech, slow breathing, lack of coordination and confusion. Age factor and your tolerance levels play a role in how your body responds to the outer environment. For children, a fever is when their body temperature is more than 100.4°F (measured rectally), 99.5°F (measured orally) or 99°F (measured under the arm). Conditions that can cause hypothermia include: 11 Common signs and symptoms of hypothermia include: Not everybody who is exposed to the cold develops hypothermia. If your core body temperature dips down to 95 F (35 C) or lower, thats considered hypothermia. For adults, a fever is when the body temperature is higher than 100.4°F. Core body temperature is normally 37°C, no matter what the temperature of the surroundings or the activity level of the individual. The normal body temperature can be anywhere between 97°F (36.1°C) and 99°F (37.2°C) in different individuals. HSE does not have specific guidance for working in cold ...

The model, developed by two researchers at Yeshiva University in New York, balances the benefit of an increased body temperature, which reduces the risk of fungal infection, with the associated cost of the higher metabolic rate required to maintain that body temperature. Their model indicates that 36.7°C is the optimum body temperature. This agrees closely with the normal body temperature of mammals and is further supported by the fact that tens of thousands of fungal species infect cold-blooded animals but only a few hundred harm mammals ...

BACKGROUND: This case report describes an experienced open-water ultra-endurance athlete swimming in water of 9.9°C for 6 h and 2 min. Methods Before the swim, anthropometric characteristics such as body mass, body height, skinfold thicknesses, and body fat were determined. During and after the swim, body core (rectum) and body surface (forearm and calf) temperatures were continuously recorded. Results The swimmer (53 years old, 110.5 kg body mass, 1.76 m body height, 34.9% body fat, and a body mass index of 35.7 kg/m2) achieved a total distance of 15 km while swimming at a mean speed of 2.48 km/h, equal to 0.69 m/s, in water of 9.9°C. Body core temperature was at 37.8°C before the swim, increased to a maximum of 38.1°C after approximately 20 min of swimming, and then decreased continuously to 36.3°C upon finishing the swim. The lowest body core temperature was 36.0°C between 35 and 60 min after finishing the swim. Sixty minutes after the swim, the body core temperature continuously rose ...
The magnitude of the influence of T w on body temperature at the upper limit of the mussel bed (0.39-0.44) is surprisingly large given that these animals reach DBTM during periods of aerial exposure. M. californianus mussel beds and the underlying rock substratum appear to have a substantial thermal memory of T w caused by heat storage during low tide (28). This result suggests that T w may play an unanticipated role in determining intertidal vertical zonation. Many intertidal ecosystems are characterized by strong vertical zonation patterns, with organisms showing pronounced upper and lower limits to distributions within shores. Upper limits of zonation in the intertidal zone are usually thought to be set by abiotic conditions associated with the terrestrial climate (21, 23, 28). Our results indicate that, for the upper vertical limits of mussel beds, T w experienced during immersion has nearly as large an influence on body temperatures during emersion as T a.. The spatial variation in BTS to ...
Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Rochester on causes of body temperature deregulation: Low body temperature may be due to exposure to cold conditions, infections that lead to sepsis, use of alcohol or other drugs in the setting of cold conditions, adrenal, pituitary, or thyroid gland dysfunction, acute brain injuries such as stroke or trauma, spinal cord injury, or brain tumor. Low body temperature is defined as body temperature less than 36 degrees celcius or 95 degrees farenheit.
Our normal body temperature is around 37°C. Our temperature can go up and down a little, around this figure, during the day. Childrens temperatures can easily rise slightly with things like hot baths, exercise and wearing overly warm clothes. Teething often increases a toddlers temperature by 0.5°C.. Fever is a part of the bodys natural defences against infection. Fever is created by your immune system under the direction of a part of the brain called the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus acts like a central heating thermostat. Fever happens when the hypothalamus sets the body temperature above its normal level.. It does this in response to an infection with germs, usually because it detects the presence of infectious agents like bacteria or viruses.

OBJECTIVES: Exercise induces changes in haemostatic parameters and core body temperature (CBT). We aimed to assess whether exercise-induced elevations in CBT induce pro-thrombotic changes in a dose-dependent manner. DESIGN: Observational study. METHODS: CBT and haemostatic responses were measured in 62 participants of a 15-km road race at baseline and immediately after finishing. As haemostasis assays are routinely performed at 37 degrees C, we corrected the assay temperature for the individuals actual CBT at baseline and finish in a subgroup of n=25. RESULTS: All subjects (44+/-11 years, 69% male) completed the race at a speed of 12.1+/-1.8km/h. CBT increased significantly from 37.6+/-0.4 degrees C to 39.4+/-0.8 degrees C (p,0.001). Post-exercise, haemostatic activity was increased, as expressed by accelerated thrombin generation and an attenuated plasmin response. Synchronizing assay temperature to the subjects actual CBT resulted in additional differences and stronger acceleration of ...

Contrary to popular belief, thermal cameras by themselves are not the ultimate solution for identifying and locating people with elevated body temperature.
The results of this study suggest that, besides the irrelevant role of body temperature measurement to predict the impending parturition in the bitch, progesterone and 15-ketodihydroprostaglandin F2alpha plasma level records could be more suitable to detect the approaching whelping in this species. More interesting was the statistically significant substantial increase in body temperature beginning 12 h after the onset of parturition. Therefore, if any significant increase in body temperature is recorded at the end of pregnancy without the beginning of the expulsion of fetuses, it could indicate problems at parturition. In this study, cortisol levels increased significantly at the time of delivery and remained high 12 h after the beginning of parturition, decreasing within 36 h after the onset of whelping. 15-ketodihydro-prostaglandin F2alpha levels increased significantly 24 h before parturition and again at the onset of whelping. Progesterone levels decreased significantly, starting 24 h before the
Although it is known that relatively large increases in local brain temperature can occur during behaviour and in response to various novel, stressful and emotionally arousing environmental stimuli, the source of this heat is not clearly established. To clarify this issue, we monitored the temperature in three brain structures (dorsal and ventral striatum, cerebellum) and in arterial blood at the level of the abdominal aorta in freely moving rats exposed to several environmental challenges ranging from traditional stressors to simple sensory stimuli (cage change, tail pinch, exposure to another male rat, a female rat, a mouse or an unexpected sound). We found that brain temperature was consistently higher than arterial blood temperature, and that brain temperature increased prior to, and to a greater extent than, the increase in blood temperature evoked by each test challenge. Thus, the local metabolic consequences of widely correlated neural activity appear to be the primary source of increases ...

Press Release issued Apr 23, 2015: Normal body temperature varies by a persons age, activity, and the time of day at which it is being measured. Fahrenheit, Kelvin, and Celsius are three temperature measurement units used to measure patient body temperature. The normal average body temperature in humans is considered to be 98.6 degree Fahrenheit. Body temperature represents the balance between heat production and heat loss. Persons whose body temperature rises to 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit are considered ill.

Horse core body temperature: A preliminary study warns ambient temperatures expected and type of rug needs to be considered as horses can easily overheat.
A new study this week revealed that the normal body temperature of 98.6 degrees may not be the average human body temperature anymore. Since 1871, the normal body temperature that is tested for is 98.6 degrees measured in Fahrenheit or 37 degrees Celsius. But the new study reveals that average body temperature has been gradually dropping since the standard temp was discovered, reported Time this week.
Related conditions - Although normal body temperatures can vary throughout the day, the average adult normal body temperature when taken by mouth with a thermometer is 37°C (98.6°F). The normal rectal temperature is approximately 0.5°C (1°F) higher than the oral (mouth) temperature, while the temperature under the armpit (axillary) is slightly lower than the oral temperature.

A temperature data logger, also called temperature monitor, is a portable measurement instrument that is capable of autonomously recording temperature over a defined period of time. The digital data can be retrieved, viewed and evaluated after it has been recorded. A data logger is commonly used to monitor shipments in a cold chain and to gather temperature data from diverse field conditions. A variety of constructions are available. Most have an internal thermistor or thermocouple or can be connected to external sources. Sampling and measurement are periodically taken and digitally stored. Some have a built in display of data or out-of-tolerance warnings. Data retrieval can be by cable, RFID, wireless systems, etc. They generally are small, battery powered, portable, and equipped with a microprocessor, internal memory for data storage, and sensors. Some data loggers interface with personal computers or smart phones for set-up, control, and analysis. Some include other sensors such as relative ...
