This module allows you to explore thermoregulatory responses to exercise. This modules also includes the ability to change the ambient temperature. Note that the ambient humidity remains constant at 30%.
Measurable physiological variables in this module:
- Ambient Temp - (°F)
- Core Temp - (°F)
- Heat Gain - (kilocalories/min)
- Heat Loss - (kilocalories/min)
- Sweating Rate - (ml/min)
- Metabolic Rate - total metabolic rate (calories/min)
The following Variables can be graphed for this simulation. The orange New Graph button will allow you to add additional graphs.
- Time (Minutes)
- Exercise Bike Power Setting
- Ambient Temp
- Body Temp.
- Heat Gain
- Heat Loss
- Sweating Rate
- Metabolic Rate
