Birds, being homeothermic, are expected to keep their body temperatures within rather narrow limits. However, it turns out that individuals are able to use body temperature regulation in a seemingly adaptive way. Resident birds in regions with a pronounced winter, regularly reduce body temperature to save energy invested in thermoregulation. Since individuals only seem to use this possibility if they need to, an interesting future research question would be to estimate the costs of this physiological mechanism. Also in hot environments, birds are not strict in their thermoregulation but this time let their body temperature increase above their normal one of about 42 °C. We have found individuals to have body temperatures around 46.5 °C in hot conditions.. ...

The energy expended by "warm-blooded" organisms, such as ourselves, to regulate our body temperature is enormous: temperature regulation is costly. For example, at low environmental temperatures, people might have to expend 1800 kcal/day, or more, solely to generate the heat necessary to maintain a body temperature of 37°C and perhaps 10% more at febrile temperatures. This expenditure of energy often amounts to over 90% of the total energy used in any given day for performing external work. The energy, of course, comes from the food we eat, and as a result, we must eat an equivalent amount of kcal of food each day just to regulate body temperature. On days when our food intake falls below our daily energy expenditure, we rely on our stores of fat for this source of energy, resulting in a loss of weight. One can calculate, approximately, the amount of energy saved by a resting human-sized organism which does not regulate its body temperature, and therefore remains at a constant environmental ...

Background: Protection against cold is vitally important in prehospital trauma care to reduce heat loss and prevent body core cooling.. Objectives: Evaluate the effect on cold stress and thermoregulation in volunteer subjects byutilising additional insulation on a spineboard (I). Determine thermal insulation properties of blankets and rescue bags in different wind conditions (II). Establish the utility of wet clothing removal or the addition of a vapour barrier by determining the effect on heat loss within different levels of insulation in cold and warm ambient temperatures (III) and evaluating the effect on cold stress and thermoregulation in volunteer subjects (IV).. Methods: Aural canal temperature, sensation of shivering and cold discomfort was evaluated in volunteer subjects, immobilised on non-insulated (n=10) or insulated (n=9) spineboards in cold outdoor conditions (I). A thermal manikin was setup inside a climatic chamber and total resultant thermal insulation for the selected ensembles ...
The synthesis and biological evaluation on thermoregulation of 39 peptides related to bombesin (structural analogues or other naturally occurring peptides) are described. The bioassay system reported measures the ability of peptides injected intracisternally to lower body temperature of cold (4 degrees C) exposed rats. The most potent analogues of bombesin were those in which positions one to five (not included) were altered, indicating that the decapeptide C terminal was sufficient for full potency. Gln at the seventh position and Gly at the 11th position could be replaced by D-Gln and D-Ala (but not D-Pro or D-Phe), respectively, without any change in potency. Methionine at the 14 position could be replaced with its D isomer with retention of 10% biological activity. Any other alteration of the C terminus (deletions or free acid with the exception of the N-methylamide) drastically reduced the biological potency of those peptides. Among other naturally occurring peptides, alytesin was found to ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Thermoregulation of the rabbit during the late phase of endotoxin fever. AU - Vybíral, Stanislav. AU - Székely, M.. AU - Janský, Ladislav. AU - Černý, Luděk. PY - 1987/9. Y1 - 1987/9. N2 - In the late phase of the fever occurring 120 or more min after i.v. injection of endotoxin (1 ug/kg) to female rabbits, marked shifts of thresholds for respiratory evaporative heat loss and for peripheral vasodilatation to higher body core temperatures were observed. In contrast, the threshold body core temperature for cold thermogenesis was shifted downwards. As a result, the interthreshold zone was widened. Within the body temperature range of 37.4 to 39.9°C neither heat production or heat loss mechanisms were operant and the body temperature was determined mainly by passive heat transfer between the body and the environment. Outside this zone, the sensitivities of the heat and cold deference activities to changes in body core temperature appeared to be unchanged.. AB - In the late ...
The induction of a mild reduction in body core temperature has been demonstrated to provide neuroprotection for patients who have suffered a medical event resulting in ischemia to the brain or vital organs. Temperatures in the range of 32-34 °C provide the required level of protection and can be produced and maintained by diverse means for periods of days. Rewarming from hypothermia must be conducted slowly to avoid serious adverse consequences and usually is performed under control of the thermal therapeutic device based on a closed-loop feedback strategy based on the patients core temperature. Given the sensitivity and criticality of this process, it is important that the device control system be able to interact with the human thermoregulation system, which itself is highly nonlinear. The therapeutic hypothermia device must be calibrated periodically to ensure that its performance is accurate and safe for the patient. In general, calibration processes are conducted with the hypothermia ...
Neuropeptides are a diverse assemblage of signalling molecules that have key roles in the regulation of behaviour. Understanding the evolutionary relationships and functions of the plethora of neuropeptides has presented a considerable challenge to biologists. Based on presentations and discussions at a Royal Society meeting in 2017, three companion Review articles by Elphick et al., Jékely et al. and DeLaney et al. discuss advances in our knowledge of neuropeptide evolution and function and the techniques that have facilitated progress in this field of research.. ...
This paper presents an updated and augmented version of the Wissler human thermoregulation model that has been developed continuously over the past 50 years. The existing Fortran code is translated into C with extensive embedded commentary. A graphical user interface (GUI) has been developed in Python to facilitate convenient user designation of input and output variables and formatting of data presentation. Use of the code with the GUI is described and demonstrated. New physiological elements were added to the model to represent the hands and feet, including the unique vascular structures adapted for heat transfer associated with glabrous skin. The heat transfer function and efficacy of glabrous skin is unique within the entire body based on the capacity for a very high rate of blood perfusion and the novel capability for dynamic regulation of blood flow. The model was applied to quantify the absolute and relative contributions of glabrous skin flow to thermoregulation for varying levels of ...

Water Temperature: Several studies have examined the effects of providing cool water to birds during hot weather. In most of these studies, water temperature has improved the performance of broilers and layers. Any water temperature below the body temperature of the bird will be beneficial. The water consumed will help dissipate body heat and aid the bird in body temperature regulation. However, it is very difficult to cool the water significantly when moving the water hundreds of feet down a house.. Electrolytes: During periods of potential heat stress, many producers supplement drinking water with electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals that can be found in the blood and are important for normal cell function and growth. Electrolytes, as the name implies, help regulate nerve and muscle function by conducting electrical signals from nerves to muscles. Electrolytes are also important for the acid-base balance of the blood and fluid retention. Some of the electrolytes found in blood plasma ...
The skin is the largest organ of the body. The skin and its derivatives (hair, nails, sweat and oil glands) make up the integumentary system. One of the main functions of the skin is protection. It protects the body from external factors such as bacteria, chemicals, and temperature. The skin contains secretions that can kill bacteria and the pigment melanin provides a chemical pigment defense against ultraviolet light that can damage skin cells. Another important function of the skin is body temperature regulation. When the skin is exposed to a cold temperature, the blood vessels in the dermis constrict. This allows the blood which is warm, to bypass the skin. The skin then becomes the temperature of the cold it is exposed to. Body heat is conserved since the blood vessels are not diverting heat to the skin anymore. Among its many functions the skin is an incredible organ always protecting the body from external agents.. ...

Mt. Adams can be extraordinarily hot once you get high enough. I over packed layers and jackets because I was expecting it, a 12,000 foot snowcap, to be cold and windy. While I could have done without most of my other layers once I got moving, it was good to be prepared. Were anything to happen on the ascent that prevented us from making our one-day summit, the layers could have saved my life. I wore an Icebreaker CoolLite tank with the Arcteryx Atom LT over it for most of the hike. The combination of the two helped keep me cool and dry once in motion, but also warm when I needed it (for example, for a 5am start at 5,600). There were times I unzipped the Atom to get a breeze, but didnt want to take it off - the Arcteryx jacket functioned exactly as I needed it to and provided awesome body temperature regulation (due to thick insulation in the front, back and arms and breathable paneling on the sides). It was the perfect mid-layer for the day. ...

I am writing from Lake placid near a cozy fire next to a sound asleep and snoring William. My mom and I decided to get away for the week that the twins had off of school. Even though its very cold in the Adirondack mountains it feels wonderful to be away from the stresses of home and everyday life. Last week William and I met with Dr. Mink (his neurologist) to discuss the past few challenging months. Will has been so much more alert and happy yet still struggles more than usual with his eating skills and body temperature regulation. He is still dipping down to 92 and rarely reaching above 95 degrees F. During our appointment we discussed shunt placement (to relieve fluid pressure in this brain ventricles), g-tube placement, among other concerns. Dr. Mink does not feel that William would benefit from a shunt at this time since he does not know how quickly the fluid in his brain has been collecting. Placing a shunt would also be extremely risky for Will given how much fluid fills his ventricles ...
The HCG diet is actually not new on the scene of diet fads. Its just the one that is the latest on the radar screen. It actually has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of infertility in women, but has wide appeal for those wishing to shed those extra pounds.. The effectiveness of HCG as a diet supplement is its role in "re-setting" the hypothalamus and changing how the body burns fat. There are three types of fat in the body: structural fat, the fat that fills gaps to create protection around organs and bones; reserve fat, used by the body as a sort of nutritional income, as well as for fuel for muscles and body temperature regulation; and "abnormal" fat, which should be available for nutritional reserves, but is actually trapped. HCG unlocked the bodys ability to burn this trapped fat. Many dieters choose to supplement HCG with a 500-calorie diet and feel no hunger pains because their body is living off the calories from the trapped fat.. The health benefits of homeopathic HCG drops ...
It must be mentioned at this stage the importance of breathing through the nose. Although it may seem an obvious truth to many people, it often needs re-stating that: "The nose is for breathing - The mouth is for eating.". Yes, it may be necessary to breathe through the mouth in times of extreme exertion, emergency or nasal restriction, and it is a true sign of good design that we have a backup orifice for air intake. But the mouth is only that. A reserve or emergency apparatus for breathing. The nose is the proper receptor for healthy respiration.. There are very many gross and subtle reasons that the design of the human body was included with the facility of breathing through the nostrils, and in the modern world today, it must be the singular most ignored and abused aspect of human function. Without a proper function of breath through the nostrils, no proper state of physical health can be achieved and maintained. There will not be correct body temperature regulation; there will not be the ...
A neurochemical is a small organic molecule or peptide that participates in neural activity. The science of neurochemistry studies the functions of neurochemicals. Glutamate is the most common neurotransmitter. Most neurons secrete with glutamate or GABA. Glutamate is excitatory, meaning that the release of glutamate by one cell usually causes adjacent cells to fire an action potential. (Note: Glutamate is chemically identical to the MSG commonly used to flavor food.) GABA is an example of an inhibitory neurotransmitter. Monoamine neurotransmitters: Dopamine is a monoamine neurotransmitter. It plays a key role in the functioning of the limbic system, which is involved in emotional function and control. It also is involved in cognitive processes associated with movement, arousal, executive function, body temperature regulation, and pleasure and reward, and other processes. Norepinephrine, also known as noradrenaline, is a monoamine neurotransmitter that is involved in arousal, pain perception, ...

Thermoregulation is the manner in which the body is able to maintain a consistent internal temperature, notwithstanding significant fluctuations in external temperatures caused by the environment. Thermoregulation is a primarily involuntary function, with the controls centered in the hypothalamus, the region of the brain that controls many other important systems, including the production of hormones, the chemical signals generated throughout the body in the endocrine system, as well as the function of the heart. Humans have evolved to function best at an internal temperature that can be maintained at approximately 98.6°F (37°C).. Exercise may be broadly defined as any exertion of the musculoskeletal system that goes beyond the involuntary functions of basic human metabolism, such as eating, breathing, or sleeping; exercise levels will naturally place a correspondingly greater impact on the bodys ability to regulate temperature. The impact of exercise on the thermoregulatory system will also ...

This study examined the hypothesis that several days of exhaustive exercise would impair thermoregulatory effector responses to cold exposure, leading to an accentuated core temperature reduction compared with exposure of the same individual to cold in a rested condition. Thirteen men (10 experimental and 3 control) performed a cold-wet walk (CW) for up to 6 h (6 rest-work cycles, each 1 h in duration) in 5 degrees C air on three occasions. One cycle of CW consisted of 10 min of standing in the rain (5.4 cm/h) followed by 45 min of walking (1.34 m/s, 5.4 m/s wind). Clothing was water saturated at the start of each walking period (0.75 clo vs. 1.1 clo when dry). The initial CW trial (day 0) was performed (afternoon) with subjects rested before initiation of exercise-cold exposure. During the next 7 days, exhaustive exercise (aerobic, anaerobic, resistive) was performed for 4 h each morning. Two subsequent CW trials were performed on the afternoon of days 3 and 7, approximately 2.5 h after cessation of
You will probably notice that aphid numbers in cereal crops are on the increase due to the favourable warm conditions that have prevailed recently. Aphids feeding on spring sown crops that are in grain fill stages of development can damage the yield potential, and therefore the numbers present on any crop should be monitored closely
An algorithm was developed to expand the surface air temperature and air humidity to a larger spatial domain, based on the fact that the variation of surface air temperature and air humidity is controlled jointly by the local turbulence and the horizontal advection. This study proposed an algorithm which considers the advective driving force outside the thermal balance system and the turbulent driving force and radiant driving force inside the thermal balance system. The surface air temperature is determined by a combination of the surface observations and the regional land surface temperature observed from a satellite. The average absolute difference of the algorithm is 0.65 degree and 0.31 mb, respectively, for surface air temperature and humidity expansion, which provides a promising approach to downscale the two surface meteorological variables.

Making weight is a common practice in many sports, and powerlifting is no exception. However, there are definite health risks associated with dehydration, as well as detriments to performance. Fluid loss of even 1% of body weight is associated with decreased thermoregulatory function, such as increased core body temperature. Further loss of up to 5% of body weight can result in potentially dangerous cardiovascular strain and inability to dissipate heat. If your federation requires you to weigh in the morning of the competition, you should plan on losing no more than 2% of your body weight within 48 hours of weigh-in to ensure a high level of performance. For a lifter who wishes to compete as a 181?er, this means that he or she should weigh no more than 185 pounds in the few days prior to the meet. Some research studies suggest that losing up to 4% of your body weight within 5 hours of competition is acceptable; however these results were accompanied by a high carbohydrate diet. In order to make ...

The thermo-insulated heat accumulator is characterized in that a) the heat storage medium contained in the heat accumulator is water and / or another environmentally friendly fluid or substance, b) the storage capacity, i. the capacity of the heat accumulator is dimensioned correspondingly large, c) the heat accumulator inside wholly or partially a heat radiation reflective coating or reflective foil lining, preferably a lining of highly polished aluminum foil, and d) the heat storage facilities for heat supply and heat transfer has.
We demonstrated a simple technique to obtain stable room temperature multiwavelength lasing in an erbium-doped fiber laser by the inhomogeneous loss mechanism. Successful reduction of the cross-gain saturation in erbium-doped fiber was achieved by incorporating a section of highly nonlinear fiber (HNLF) and a narrowband Fabry-Perot filter (FPF) in the laser cavity. More than 70 wavelengths simultaneous lasing were observed with the same frequency space of 25GHz. The laser had a total output power of ∼3.2dBm, a bandwidth of 0.012nm (∼1.5GHz) and a signal-to-spontaneous-noise ratio of ∼44dB. The total output power can be further increased to more than 190mW by moving the output port right after the EDFA.. ©2006 Optical Society of America. Full Article , PDF Article ...
It is very well established (2, 21, 34, 45) that irrespective of core temperature, the rate of whole body and local sweating is determined by the rate of evaporation required for heat balance Ereq and the skin wettedness required for heat balance (i.e., Ereq/Emax). The present data clearly show that this relationship is not altered whatsoever by large differences in V̇o2 peak. Because HI and LO groups in the present study were also matched for BSA, exercise at a fixed heat production of 540 W (FHP trial) also yielded the same heat production per unit surface area (275 W/m2) but distinctly different relative exercise intensities. Skin temperatures were also similar between groups; therefore, the rate of evaporation required for heat balance (Ereq) (HI: 178 ± 20 W/m2 vs. LO: 172 ± 26 W/m2), the maximum evaporation possible (Emax) (HI: 418 ± 47 W/m2 vs. LO: 428 ± 34 W/m2) and subsequent Ereq/Emax values (HI: 0.43 ± 0.04 vs. LO: 0.40 ± 0.05) were almost identical, and no differences in whole ...
