Disorders of Thermoregulation

  • Michael H. Entrup
  • Sana Ata


Mammals regulate body temperature by regulating heat content and distribution (1). To maintain a constant heat content, heat gain or metabolic heat production must equal heat loss. When heat gain or metabolic heat production exceeds heat loss, the total heat content of the body increases, resulting in an increase in mean body temperature. Conversely, the mean body temperature decreases when heat loss exceeds heat gain or metabolic heat production.
