We have recent data whieh demonstrate that the hypothermie response to nareotie anaIgesies is abolished by hyperthyroidism). Thermoregulatory effects of these neuropeptides (and others) have been deseribed in several species (for review, see the several papers in the symposium: The newer putative eentral neurotransmitters: Role in thermoregulation, Fed. , 40,2735-2768, 1981). Thus, it is envisaged that the environmental stress results in release of some neuromodulators (as a faeet of the defenee response) whieh also modify the aetivity of the thermoregulatory eenters 39 ENVIRONMENTAL STRESS such that the set point is not now lowered by the presence of ethanol.

Unexplained episodes of confusion and error by experienced divers were common, and in a high proportion of diving fatalities no complete explanation could be given for the sequence of events leading to death, whatever the final cause of death may have been (Childs and Norman, 1978). , 1980), using the conventional hot water heating system. Body temperature was obtained when they returned to the diving bell on the seabed. 5 °c as the dives ended. 3 oe. Temperature control was clearly poor, with some body temperatures so low that any further fall could be expected to produce confusion and loss of consciousness with little delay.

E. the functioning of the extremities) during cold stress. And here the importance of thermoregulatory changes in skin circulation comes in and must be accounted for in terms of a concept of thermoregulation for the diver. A working man is dependent upon a very fine and delicate adjustment of sensory and motor functions. This is especially important for the hands. The hand is one of nature's finest instruments. Distally, in the fingers, and in the hand are placed the structures that ensure a fine and very exact control.
