There are also often substantial radial tissue-temperature gradients, which become especially large in extreme thermal environments (70,72,73). As might be expected, proximal-to-distal and radial gradients are especially severe during cardiopulmonary bypass at low temperatures (Fig. 8). However, similar gradients can probably be observed during coldwater immersion. In a warm environment, especially in vasodilated subjects, tissue temperature in much of the peripheral compartment can equal core temperature.
However, it also limits transfer of heat from the core to peripheral tissues during induction of therapeutic hypothermia. 5jC) (96,97). However, general anesthetics also induce nonthermoregulatory dilation (98); thus there is little restriction of heat flow between peripheral and core tissues during anesthesia (99,100). However, without anesthesia, vasoconstriction can be a major factor determining the rate of intercompartmental heat transfer. The rate of core warming with surface warming is thus about what would be expected based on systemic heat balance during anesthesia, but is considerably less without anesthesia (Fig.
