Introduction: Skin blood flow in humans can increase substantially in response to thermal stress, which represents a vital aspect of normal thermoregulation. In intact tissue, the sympathetic nervous system provides one of the fundamental mechanisms for the control of skin blood flow and pressure. T[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
