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. The experiment demonstrated that the nasal instillation of young cattle using an originally pathogenic H. somnus isolate is capable of stimulating only transitory complement fixation antibody titer.  (+info)

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. The p75 receptor for TNF and intercellular adhesion molecule 1 have a negligible role in this toxic shock model.  (+info)

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)

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 ...
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 ...

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 ...
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.". ...
A normal body temperature can range from 97°F to 99°F, while a fever is generally considered 100.4°F or above. Heres what you need to know.
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 ...

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

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 ...

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. It is believed that the increased temperature is a protection the body has developed to help fight the germs that cause infections, as they tend to multiply best at normal body temperature.. The mechanism through which the body increases its ...
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 ...

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.

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 ...

To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to demonstrate meaningful variation in individual body temperature, separately from random measurement error and the influence of external factors, and to correlate them to a range of patient factors and outcomes in a diverse patient population.. These results illustrate a way in which "big data" can serve to generate new medical knowledge. Here we used these data not to answer a causal question (eg, to discover side effects of drugs) or to predict an outcome (eg, to create an early warning system for a given condition), but to discover previously unsuspected and potentially important patterns in human physiology. It is unlikely that any one practitioner could have noticed these patterns, despite their fairly large magnitude connections with mortality. Rather, large datasets and statistical methods are needed to bring out these patterns from the empirical record. Our most noteworthy result was the connection between temperature and mortality. This fits ...

The weather is extremely unpredictable. One day its 60 degrees and raining, the next its 80 degrees with sunshine. Winters can be even worse with unexpected cold fronts. With extremely cold temperatures, hypothermia is a possibility for dogs. Hypothermia, occurring in both humans and pets, is a condition characterized by abnormally low body temperatures. There are three phases of hypothermia: mild, classified as a body temperature of 90-99 degrees Fahrenheit; moderate, classified as a body temperature of 82-90 degrees Fahrenheit; and severe, classified as a body temperature of less than 82 degrees Fahrenheit. With hypothermia, the dog is no longer able to control a normal body temperature resulting in an abnormal heartbeat and difficulties breathing. Generally, hypothermia results from spending too much time outside in the cold. Although there is not a specific time limit for a given temperature a dog should be left outside, Dr. Stacy Eckman, lecturer at the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine

By Andrew Liszewski. Your standard thermometer can only reach so far, so if youre really curious as to what temperature your insides are reading youll need to upgrade to this CorTemp Temperature Monitoring System. It consists of a monitoring device you need to carry on your person and an ingestible sensor you need to swallow. As the sensor travels through your bodys digestive tract it wirelessly transmits the core body temperature readings to the receiver, which then displays the temperature in a digital format in real time.. The receiver will also store the readings as measured over time for later analysis, and is capable of keeping track of the temperature data coming from 99 individual sensors. While Im sure its not recommended to swallow 99 of the sensors at one time, the feature is probably convenient for medical professionals dealing with multiple patients.. The CorTemp starter kit which includes 10 free sensor pills will set you back $2,500, while 20 additional pills runs ...

WEDNESDAY, April 19, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Adjusting the so-called body clock might help severely brain-injured patients regain consciousness from a coma, researchers say.. The preliminary study included 18 people with severe brain injuries. Their body temperature was continually monitored for one week, which enabled researchers to calculate the length of each patients circadian rhythm -- the natural cycles that tell you when to sleep, wake or eat. The researchers found circadian rhythms ranged from 23.5 to 26.3 hours among the study patients.. The investigators also evaluated the patients levels of consciousness by measuring things such as response to sound, and ability to open eyes with or without stimulation.. Body temperature fluctuates throughout the day based on environmental cues, including daylight and darkness, the study authors explained. The researchers found that patients with a higher level of consciousness had body temperature patterns more closely aligned with a healthy ...
These findings represent, to our knowledge, the first such demonstration of dynamic ischemic brain temperature monitoring by using fully noninvasive MR thermometry. With a controlled NHP stroke-induction model, the findings confirmed: 1) the presence of physiologic brain temperature gradients in the healthy brain, 2) disturbance of brain temperatures following ischemia, and 3) decoupling of baseline brain systemic temperature gradients as hypothesized, in a phylogenetically similar substrate offering potential insight into human spatiotemporal brain temperature disturbance.. Febrile systemic temperatures are a well-known consequence of large-vessel-occlusion stroke, particularly in the later acute phase of ischemia; however, the immediacy with which brain temperatures increased in our study suggests that damaging brain temperature elevations may indeed begin early following infarction. Cerebral temperatures correlated strongly with infarction volumes in this study, and while a causal ...
When the body temperature increases from 37°C degrees, the body begins to freeze until it is chilled. If, on the other hand, the body temperature drops below 37°C degrees, person feel the pain, flushing a.o.m. very intensive. Why this reverse relationship? As scientifically based informational medicine we have found among others, that the increases or decreases in a body, are depending on the partial temperature differences. The more fascial injuries, the more there are partially temperature differences and therefore noticeable increasing disorders due to rapid biological decomposition. As a result, bioelectrical signal disorders cause all kinds of infections, which develops into chronic disorders such as e.g. pain diseases a.m. Because we understand the causes and triggers of this rapid decomposition process, prevention is possible at any stage of the physical disorder.. ...

The SCN responds to light entering the eye, and so is sensitive to cycles of day and night. While light may be the trigger, the UT Southwestern researchers determined that the SCN transforms that information into neural signals that set the bodys temperature. These cyclic fluctuations in temperature then set the timing of cells, and ultimately tissues and organs, to be active or inactive, the study showed.. Scientists have long known that body temperature fluctuates in warm-blooded animals throughout the day on a 24-hour, or circadian, rhythm, but the new study shows that temperature actually controls body cycles, said Dr. Joseph Takahashi, chairman of neuroscience at UT Southwestern and senior author of the study.. "Small changes in body temperature can send a powerful signal to the clocks in our bodies," said Dr. Takahashi, an investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. "It takes only a small change in internal body temperature to synchronize cellular clocks throughout the ...
Apparatus for altering the body temperature of a patient comprises an enclosure defining an interior space for receiving at least a portion of a patients body therein. The enclosure is constructed for transferring a heat transfer liquid into direct contact with the portion of the patients body received in the enclosure to promote heat transfer between the patients body and the heat transfer liquid. A drain for draining the heat transfer liquid from the interior space of the enclosure is at least partially disposed beneath the enclosure. A hold-open inhibits occlusion of the drain. A weir in fluid communication with the drain maintains the heat transfer liquid at a predetermined height in the enclosure. A control system is preprogrammed with a target temperature for the body temperature of the patient.

The review of the literature covers the underpinning neurophysiology of temperature regulation and the causes and consequences of fatigue in the heat and the effect of skin cooling (Chapter 1). To date primarily exercise protocols have been used to investigate the effect of high ambient temperatures on fatigue. If the now well established view that the limiting factor during endurance exercise in the heat is a critically high core body temperature, it is possible that this hyperthermia-induced fatigue could be investigated, in part, by passive heating. The purpose of the first experimental chapter of this thesis (Chapter 2) was to determine whether passive heating to increase core body temperature (Te) would have a detrimental effect on subsequent exercise capacity and perceived exertion (RPE) during exercise in the heat and whether head-cooling during passive heating would attenuate the unpleasant sensations of an elevated T, during subsequent exercise in the heat. The study found exercise time ...
A system for regulating a core body temperature of a person includes a pressure applicator configured to apply negative or cyclical positive pressure to a portion of the person to vasodilate blood vessels of the person within the portion, a heating device configured to supply heat to the portion of the person, and a control apparatus. The control apparatus is coupled to the heating device and includes a controller configured to vary the amount of heat supplied by the heating device. The amount of heat supplied by the heating device is varied in response to a difference in temperature between a preset temperature programmed into the controller and an actual core body temperature of the patient received by the controller from a temperature sensor on the person such that the controller maintains the actual core body temperature of the person at substantially the preset temperature.

Objective: The student will be able to describe the four functions of the skin. Apparatus/Materials Needed: 1. Microprojector (optional) 8. Construction paper 2. Microscopes (if available) 9. Toothpicks 3. Overhead projector 10. Plastic gloves 4. Skin slide 11. Paper cups 5. Model of the skin 12. Water 6. Transparency of the skin 13. Pepper 7. Crayons Introduction: The skin is an organ consisting of tissues structurally joined together to perform specific activities (functions). The four main functions are: (1) Protection: The skin covers the body and provides a physical barrier that protects underlying tissues from physical abrasion, bacterial invasion, dehydration and ultraviolet radiation. (2) Maintenance of body temperature: The production of perspiration by sweat glands help to lower body temperature back to normal. (3) Excretion: Not only does perspiration assume a role in helping to maintain normal body temperature, it also assists in excreting small amounts of water, salts and several ...
Body temperature increases with exercise. The intensity of the exercise directly relates to the increase in body temperature. It increases even more in women with a low fitness level, dehydration, prolonged exercise or a hot, humid environment. If the core body temperature increases above 39-40C in early pregnancy, there may be an increase in birth defects. Later in pregnancy, excess heat may limit fetal growth. Pregnancy does not change sweat production during exercise. More blood pools near the skin in pregnancy because tone in blood vessels decreases. This allows greater heat loss. To offset this, pregnant women produce more metabolic heat. Fetal temperatures stay higher much longer after maternal exercise ends than do maternal temperatures. Water is a much better conductor of heat than air, so swimming in usual pool temperature water (about 80F) results in less increase in core temperature than do land exercises.

A fever is one of the signs that your child is sick, but sometimes it can be hard to tell whether your childs temperature is normal or whether he has a fever. This difficulty is compounded by the different options for thermometers, which vary in accuracy and the age at which you can begin to use them for your child.
A paper published recently in Nature has found that preserving livers at body temperature may improve transplant outcomes and increase viable donor liver numbers, thereby lowering waiting list mortality rates. Liver disease may arise from a variety of causes, such as genetic, or it may be caused by factors that damage the liver, such as viruses and alcohol use. Over time, damage … Read More ...
Fever is a term that refers to an elevated body temperature. The normal body temperature range for cats is between 100.5°F and 102.5°F (38.1°C to 39.2°C). To be classified as a fever of unknown origin (FUO), the body temperature must be above 103.5°F (39.7°C) on at least four occasions over a fourteen-day period, accompanied by an illness of at least fourteen days duration without an obvious cause.. ...

What do you mean by fever? The average body temperature is just that, an average. Some people run a bit higher body temperature and some a bit lower than that. Its hypothesized that the set-point for body temperature is determined by a neural network involving neurons in the preoptic area, so I guess a defect of that brain region could lead to an elevated body temperature in the absence of other illness, but without knowing more, thats pretty much just a wild guess ...

In contrast, ThermaCare raised skin and muscle temperature by 7.8°C and 2.7°C, respectively; both were significantly warmer with ThermaCare vs either Icy Hot product. Icy Hot products produced a net decrease in skin blood flow. Muscle blood flow decreased with the Patch. After a period of fluctuations, Icy Hot Cream produced a net increase vs baseline of 7.0 flux. ThermaCare more than doubled blood flow in skin and muscle. ...
Consider estimating the mean body temperature of a population. You could take a random sample of people and find the body temperature of each. The sample mean would be your best single guess for a value of the unknown population mean body temperature. However, because you know that your estimate may not be exactly correct, you should include with your single best estimate an assessment of how accurate the estimate is likely to be. A confidence interval does just this. If you wish to be 95% confident that your estimate is within some distance of the true population mean, you create an interval centered at xbar extending a width 1.96 SE(xbar) in each direction. This is justified because the middle 95% of the standard normal curve is within 1.96 standard deviations and the central limit theorem says that the sampling distribution of xbar will be approximately normal (for sufficiently large sample sizes). A 95% confidence interval for ...
Charting your basal body temperature gives you valuable insight and information about your menstrual cycle. Simply taking your temperature every morning tells you when you have ovulated, shows where you may have fertility problems and can even tell you that you are pregnant. However, using your basal body temperature as a sign of pregnancy is easier if you have been charting it for several months. Reading and interpreting your basal temperature chart takes practice. Once you become adept at understanding your temperature cycle and chart as well as determining your exact day of ovulation, then when your chart does start to show a pregnancy, it will probably stand out.. ...
A higher body temperature benefits in numerous ways, especially during the cold season. Since a warmer body reduces the chances of being sick, it is important to consume foods that keep the body nice and warm - and add a bit of resistance to getting cold. This process is referred to as diet-induced thermogenesis. For those of us who cant make out what the term means; it is the process of consuming foods that have beneficial compounds for raising the bodys temperature. ...

A pets normal body temperature is between 99.5 and 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit. A pet can only withstand a higher body temperature for a very short time.. Once the pets body temperature reaches a critical level, he will suffer irreparable brain damage - or even death.. On a warm day, the air inside of a car heats up very quickly. Even on a relatively mild 85-degree day, for example, the temperature inside of your car - even parked in the shade with the windows slightly opened - will reach about 102 degrees in 10 minutes. In 30 minutes, it will go up to 120 degrees. On warmer days, it will go even higher, and more quickly!. The overheated air in a closed car interferes with the pets normal cooling process. Unlike humans, dogs and cats do not perspire to cool their bodies down - they pant.. When the air they take in is overheated, the evaporation that usually occurs during panting is insufficient to allow proper cooling.. If your pet is overcome by heat, you can give immediate first aid by getting ...

Studies of the relationship between animal body temperature and air temperature suggest body temperature is essentially unresponsive until a threshold is reached, then it responds dramatically to increasing air temperature. The goal is to estimate the threshold between the thermoneutral plateau and the beginning of the heat stress challenge. One approach is to fit a polynomial to estimate the knot position and use spline functions to perform linear least squares piecewise polynomial fitting. Another alternative is to use nonlinear regression to estimate the knot or an inflection point of a nonlinear function. In both approaches the cyclic nature of body temperature is ignored. This paper explores the use of nonlinear regression to estimate the knot position and handles the hysteresis effect resulting from the cyclic nature of body temperature. Models are fit to data collected from cattle in chambers subjected to semicontrolled sinusoidal air temperature at the University of Missouri-Columbia Animal

An infant warming blanket is servo controlled by a skin contact temperature sensor being taped to the abdominal skin of the infant. Through use of the blanket it is possible to maintain a constant body temperature. Access to localized areas of the body is possible by removal of blanket strips to expose the area requiring attention. The blanket has a first solid section to which a second section of individual strips having varying widths are integrally attached. In a first embodiment, heat is provided by electrical heating elements which run through both sections. Heat is supplied by heated fluid in a second embodiment eliminating the risk of electrical shock.
An infrared detector is positioned in a probe having leads which connect to a standard hand-held voltmeter. The detected voltage may indicate the difference between a target temperature surface and ambient temperature. For more accurate sensing of ambient temperature, a thermocouple may be connected in series with the thermopile with one junction at the thermopile cold junction temperature and another junction sensing ambient temperature. The ambient temperature may be that temperature surrounding the infrared detector or the temperature of the environment surrounding the meter. The infrared detector may be calibrated to provide a direct reading of temperature degrees by a factor of ten on the voltage scale of the meter. To that end, multiple thermocouples may be connected in series, each with a junction responding to ambient temperature and a junction responding to thermopile cold junction temperature.

The equivalent to 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is 37 degrees Celsius.This is the "average" normal human body temperature, which is slightly lower in adults. The range is 36.8 degrees plus or minus 0.7 degrees. Normal temperature range will vary, sometimes considerably, for individuals.
During hypothermia, pH-stat (reporting of blood gases at body temperature) corrects for the effects of temperature on pH in order to keep the pH static (7.4). This often results in the addition of CO2 to the CPB circuit. In contrast, alpha-stat (reporting of blood gases at 37 degrees) attempts to preserve electrical neutrality especially of the alpha imidazole ring of histidine (a major buffer during hypothermia). pH-stat samples analyzed at 37 degrees will be acidotic and hypercarbic. The implications of acidosis and hypercarbia include increased cerebral blood flow, rightward shift of the oxy-hemoglobin dissociation curve, and decreased cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (CMRO2). Although controversial, pH-stat may be associated with improved neurodevelopment outcomes in children. Important points:. ...

Body temperature is cause for alarm when it becomes too high. Temperature for adults and children should be somewhere between 97.8 degrees Fahrenheit (or 36.5 degrees in Celsius) and 99 degrees Fahrenheit (or 37.2 degrees in Celsius.) [1]. Infants tend to be warmer, and their temperature is only cause for concern if it reaches higher than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees in Celsius) for infants younger than 3 months, and 102.2 degrees Fahrenheit (39 degrees in Celsius) for infants 3 to 12 months of age. [2] Fever is cause for concern if it causes unmanageable discomfort, hallucinations, or if its accompanied by another alarming symptom. Its important to take infants to a health care facility if the fever is also accompanied by vomiting, wheezing, skin discoloration anywhere in their body, or strange-colored diarrhea. Taking note of how the discharge looks, how much was expelled, and the last time that the infant ate will also help health care practitioners determine the exact cause of the ...

Analysis of the mechanics of cardiac contraction in anesthetized, open chest dogs at normal body temperature showed that norepinephrine increased contractile force, rate of contraction (dT/dt), integrated systolic force (ISF), heart rate and blood pressure, and decreased the time for development of peak force and duration of the cardiac cycle in proportion to the dose. When body temperature was lowered to 28-30°C, contractile force, dT/dt and heart rate were decreased, and the time to peak force and durations of the relaxation phase and total cardiac cycle were increased. At 28-30°, a small dose of norepinephrine only stimulated the heart, but 1 µg/kg of norepinephrine caused a triphasic pattern in contractile force, dT/dt, ISF and duration of relaxation characterized by an initial, brief increase, a transient decrease and final prolonged increase. The time to peak force decreased markedly during the first phase, underwent a slight additional shortening in the second phase and returned slowly ...
The difference is important. Dealing with a gene that can make any number of disease-causing bacteria resistant may be more difficult than focusing on just one species of bug-especially as the team found the gene in 20 types of bacteria, including those that cause dysentery and cholera. But the studys findings suggest that the gene is much more likely to jump to new bacteria while outside the host (at temperatures typical of Indias climate, transfers were high; at body temperature, they dropped off). It would be interesting to see whether the fact that the gene needs lower temperatures to transfer could used to prevent its spread: if the transfer happens in drinking water, then better water treatment might help delay the formation of new resistant strains ...
INTRODUCTION. Goats along with sheep have been reported to have the widest ecological distribution of any domestic livestock (Salem et al, 1982) and seem to be better adapted to hot environments than both sheep and cattle (Coop, 1982; Valez-Nauer et al, 1982). Bianca & Kunz (1978) reported that goats were more susceptible to heat stress than sheep and cattle as measured by a rise in body temperature outward signs of stress and reduction in performance. Other workers also confirmed increases in body temperature in goats with increasing environmental temperature (Hetzel et al, 1988; Egbunike & Bitto, 1980).. High ambient temperatures however have for long been known to depress spermatogenesis, and hot climates tend to negate the effects of the descent of the testes into the scrotum (Egbunike et al., 1985). Moreover, a primary response of most species to heat stress is areduction in energy intake (Bongso et al, 1982) with a concomitant lowered productivity. With ambient temperature high all year ...

A system for checking the initial calibration of a temperature measuring device that provides a temperature measuring signal in a catheter includes a comparison unit for comparing the magnitude of the temperature signal to a reference value indicating the normal body temperature of the patient. The treatment procedure is disabled if the magnitude of the temperature signal is not within a predetermined range of the reference value.
Studies of the two areas connections suggest that both may use the same neurotransmitter, called GABA, one to inhibit the brains arousal system, allowing sleep to occur, and the other to inhibit warm-sensitive cells that act as a thermostat. Activation of the ventromedial preoptic area can "fool" the thermostat into thinking body temperature is lower than it actually is, and cause excess heat production. Both cell groups are activated during fever caused by immune stimulation, producing the characteristic elevation of body ...

The Importance of Basal Body Temperature:. As you might be already aware, there are various methods to determine whether you are fertile. One among these is your basal body temperature charting. The method of basal body temperature charting would help determine when you are likely to ovulate. So, how to use this method? Lets see here now:. While using this method, you will be tracking your bodys basal temperature. In simple terms, the basal body temperature can be defined as the lowest temperature that the body would experience in a 24-hour period. In order to note down your basal body temperature, you need to take the readings when your body is completely idle. This is why its advisable to track the basal body temperature immediately after waking up from your sleep.. Its to be noted here that your basal body temperature will be more or less stable with just some minor fluctuations. While this is the case during all the days of a menstrual cycle, you would see a slight, as well as steady ...
This thesis presents the analysis and design of a microwave radiometer for internal body temperature measurements. There is currently no available method for non-invasive temperature measurement inside the human body. However, knowledge of both relative and absolute temperature variations over time is important to a number of medical applications. The research presented in this thesis details a proof-of-concept near-field microwave radiometer demonstrating relative thermometry of a multi-layer phantom. There are a number of technical challenges addressed in this thesis for radiometric determination of sub-degree temperature variations in the human body. A theoretical approach is developed for determining sensing depth from known complex layered tissues, which is defined as a figure of merit, and is shown to be dependent on frequency, electrical properties of the tissues, and the near-field probe. In order to obtain depth resolution, multiple frequency operation can be used, so multi-frequency probes are
Body temperature measurements are obtained by scanning a thermal radiation sensor across the side of the forehead over the temporal artery. A peak temperature measurement is processed to compute an internal temperature of the body as a function of ambient temperature and the sensed surface temperature. The function includes a weighted difference of surface temperature and ambient temperature, the weighting being varied with target temperature through a minimum in the range of 96 F. and 100 F. The radiation sensor views the target surface through an emissivity compensating cup which is spaced from the skin by a circular lip of low thermal conductivity.
RESULTS. The correlations between infrared thermography temperatures and core temperature were only moderate (r=0.36-0.44), albeit statistically significant. The temperature recorded by infrared thermography was inversely proportional to the distance from the camera. There were 113 (7.4%) subjects with a core temperature of 38°C or above. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves for the three infrared thermography measurements were around 0.8. However, the maximum sensitivity achieved at a low cut-off temperature of 35°C was only 0.87 (for frontal and lateral infrared thermography views), resulting in 13% of febrile subjects being missed. The maximum forehead temperature in general had the poorest performance among the three infrared thermography views ...
To understand better how complex interactions between environmental variables affect the energy balance of small diurnal animals, we studied the effects of the absence and presence of 950 W m(−)(2) simulated solar radiation combined with wind speeds ranging from 0. 25 to 1.00 m s(−)(1) on the metabolic rate and body temperature of the round-tailed ground squirrel Spermophilus tereticaudus. As wind speed increased from 0.25 to 1.00 m s(−)(1), metabolic heat production increased by 0.94 W in the absence of solar radiation and by 0.98 W in the presence of 950 W m(−)(2) simulated solar radiation. Exposure to simulated solar radiation reduced metabolic heat production by 0.68 W at a wind speed of 0.25 m s(−)(1), by 0.64 W at 0.50 m s(−)(1) and by 0.64 W at 1.00 m s(−)(1). Body temperature was significantly affected by environmental conditions, ranging from 32. 5 degrees C at a wind speed of 1.0 m s(−)(1) and no irradiance to 35. 6 degrees C at a wind speed of 0.50 m s(−)(1) with 950 ...
Alterations in nonshivering thermogenesis are presently discussed as being both potentially causative of and able to counteract obesity. However, the necessity for mammals to defend their body temperature means that the ambient temperature profoundly affects the outcome and interpretation of metabolic experiments. An adequate understanding and assessment of nonshivering thermogenesis is therefore paramount for metabolic studies. Classical nonshivering thermogenesis is facultative, i.e. it is only activated when an animal acutely requires extra heat (switched on in minutes), and adaptive, i.e. it takes weeks for an increase in capacity to develop. Nonshivering thermogenesis is fully due to brown adipose tissue activity; adaptation corresponds to the recruitment of this tissue. Diet-induced thermogenesis is probably also facultative and adaptive and due to brown adipose tissue activity. Although all mammals respond to injected/infused norepinephrine (noradrenaline) with an increase in metabolism, ...
Abstract. Diurnal temperature fluctuations can fundamentally alter mosquito biology and mosquito-virus interactions in ways that impact pathogen transmission. We investigated the effect of two daily fluctuating temperature profiles on Aedes aegypti vector competence for dengue virus (DENV) serotype-1. A large diurnal temperature range of 18.6°C around a 26°C mean, corresponding with the low DENV transmission season in northwestern Thailand, reduced midgut infection rates and tended to extend the virus extrinsic incubation period. Dissemination was first observed at day 7 under small fluctuations (7.6°C; corresponding with high DENV transmission) and constant control temperature, but not until Day 11 for the large diurnal temperature range. Results indicate that female Ae. aegypti in northwest Thailand are less likely to transmit DENV during the low than high transmission season because of reduced DENV susceptibility and extended virus extrinsic incubation period. Better understanding of DENV
Background Faecal occult blood testing (FOBT) in population screening has proved to be effective in reducing mortality from colorectal cancer. In Italy a latex agglutination FOBT has been adopted for a single-sample screening programme. The aim of this study was to examine the performance of FOBTs in the Florence screening programme over several seasons to evaluate the impact of variations in ambient temperature on the performance of the screening test.. Methods Measured haemoglobin (Hb) concentrations were aggregated into seasons with their average ambient temperature (AAT). Using logistic regression, the AAT over the period preceding the test measurement was analysed. This period included the time between faecal sampling and return of the test sample (mean 7 days) and the time in the laboratory refrigerator before analysis (mean 4 days). The AAT from days 5-11 before analysis of the test sample was considered a determinant of test positivity. The Kruskal-Wallis rank test was used to evaluate ...
Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) have strong effects on hibernation and daily torpor. Increased dietary uptake of PUFA of the n-6 class, particularly of Linoleic acid (LA, C18:2 n-6) lengthens torpor bout duration and enables animals to reach lower body temperatures (Tb) and metabolic rates. As previously hypothesized, this well-known influence of PUFA may be mediated via effects of the membrane fatty acid composition on sarcoplasmic reticulum (SR) Ca2+−ATPase 2a (SERCA) in the heart of hibernators. We tested the hypotheses that high proportions of n-6 PUFA in general, or specifically high proportions of LA (C18:2 n-6) in SR phospholipids (PL) should be associated with increased cardiac SERCA activity, and should allow animals to reach lower minimum Tb in torpor. We measured activity of SERCA from hearts of hibernating and non-hibernating Syrian hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus) in vitro at 35°C. Further, we determined the PL fatty acid composition of the SR membrane of these hearts. We found that
