Abstract
It is well established that humans have a poor resistance to cold. Once the insulation provided by the microclimate and by peripheral vasoconstriction has been maximized, the last line of defence against the cold resides in an increase in metabolic heat production (M). Several techniques have been used to further enhance M in the cold, but it is a pharmacological approach that has received the most support.
