Abstract
The effects of low levels of radiant heat on humans are studied using an electronic infrared photographic technique for subjects exposed to moderate ambient air temperature. Changes in peripheral circulation are evaluated by recording changes in the prominence of the superficial venous pattern of the chest, the method being cited as a sensitive measurement procedure for determining vasoconstriction and vasodilation control of thermoregulation. Also a method is presented for estimating heat radiation doses equivalent to increased ambient air temperatures. Monitoring of vasomotor responses is suggested as a possible method for assessing quantitatively the effects of heat radiation on the body separately from other thermal factors.
