The fine structure of the swine sweat gland. II. The coiled ducts
The duct of the swine sweat gland crosses the dermis and epidermis in sequence. The cells of the dermic segment seem to be related with cellular secretion and absorption. In the epidermic segment of the duct the whole ...
Latent heat loss and sweat gland histology of male goats in an equatorial semi-arid environment
The objective of this work was to quantify the heat loss by cutaneous evaporation of goats in an equatorial semi-arid environment. The latent heat loss from the body surfaces of these ten undefined breed goats was measured ...
The Sweating Response of Elite Professional Soccer Players to Training in the Heat
Sweat rate and sweat composition vary extensively between individuals, and quantification of these losses has a role to play in the individualisation of a hydration strategy to optimise training and competitive performance. ...
The use of a gold disc microelectrode for the determination of copper in human sweat
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2010)
A novel approach of using a gold disc microelectrode to analyze sweat samples for copper ions by anodic square wave stripping voltammetry (SW stripping voltammetry) is described Sweat was collected from the lower back of ...
Hair coat characteristics and sweating rate of Braford cows in Brazil
(Elsevier B.V., 2007-10-01)
This paper deals with the effects of hair coat characteristics on the sweating rate of Brazilian Braford cows and estimation of heritabilities and genetic correlations of these traits. Data (n=1607) on hair length, coat ...
A device to improve the Schleger and Turner method for sweating rate measurements
The objective of this study was to test a device developed to improve the functionality, accuracy and precision of the original technique for sweating rate measurements proposed by Schleger and Turner [Schleger AV, Turner ...
