Elephants lose excess heat from the ears, with the vessels on the medial posterior surface lying close to the skin and enlarging when the elephant is hot; flapping the ears or holding them out in a breeze increases heat loss. Elephants can also lose heat by evaporation after covering their bodies with water or mud and may cover themselves with dirt to provide protection from the sun. They will stand in shade if available. The normal respiratory rate is four to 12 breaths per minute - at the lower end of this range in a sleeping elephant and at the higher end in an alert elephant. Because of the direct adherence of the lungs to the thoracic wall, respiratory movements are due solely to movements of the chest musculature; breathing is limited if there is restraint on the chest and diaphragm, for example in sternal recumbency , which limits respiration more in the adult than in the calf.
Taking the heat: Asian elephants simply 'ride out' high daytime heat load
European Tribune - Body Temperature
Normal human body temperature , also known as normothermia or euthermia , is the typical temperature range found in humans. The normal human body temperature range is typically stated as Individual body temperature depends upon the age, exertion, infection, sex, and reproductive status of the subject, the time of day, the place in the body at which the measurement is made, and the subject's state of consciousness waking, sleeping or sedated , activity level, and emotional state. It is typically maintained within this range by thermoregulation. Taking a person's temperature is an initial part of a full clinical examination.
Eleanor Klibanoff. A health official uses a handheld infrared thermometer on a passenger arriving at Murtala Muhammed International Airport in Nigeria. Airports in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are relying on a familiar tool to stop the spread of Ebola: the thermometer. Airport staff are measuring the temperature of anyone trying to leave the country, looking for "unexplained febrile illness," according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention , which is advising these countries on their exit screening processes. Other countries that are far from the infected region are screening passengers arriving from West Africa or who have a history of travel to the region.
View Full Version : What is your normal body temperature? You might have heard that the average body temperature of human beings is not the same for all ethnic groups. The Japanese claim that their body temperature is lower than that of Westerners. I did the test on my wife and I, with the same thermometer at the same time, and indeed her temperature is 1'C lower than mine Of course one example is not very significative, so I would like to know what is your average body temperature and your ethnicity, so as to see if it is really linked or not.
