Abstract
The transient temperature response of the resting human forearm immersed in water at temperatures (T sub w) ranging from 15 to 36C was investigated. Tissue temperature (T sub t) was continuously monitored by a calibrated multicouple probe during the 3-h immersions. T sub t measured every 5 mm, from the longitudinal axis of the forearm to the skin surface. Skin temperature, rectal temperature, and blood flow (Q) were also measured during the immersions. The data of the present study suggest that the forearm Q is an important determinant of the transient thermal response of the forearm tissue during thermal stress.
