Blocking the receptors of the skin and veins by cold

  • T. S. Olimpienko


The purpose of investigations was a study of the blocking of mechanoceptors of the skin and receptors of the external thoracic vein in a whole animal and isolated preparations. The blocking of skin mechanoceptors in a whole animal occurred at a thermodic temperature of from 3 to 7.5°C below zero. The blocking of an isolated skin flap with cold depended on the speed of cooling and occurred at a thermoid temperature of from 0 to 15°C.

Blocking with cold of receptors of the external thoracic vein in isolated preparation in a whole animal occurred at temperatures of 6.5 to 14.2°C.
