[サイエンスショップ] 第15回 兵庫サイエンス E-cafe 「塩からい汗は、どのように調節されているか: 汗腺でのイオン(NaCl)の再吸収に影響する要因」

The 15th Hyogo Science E-cafe "Salty Sweat and How it is Regulated: Factors affecting the ion (NaCl) reabsorption of the sweat glands"

Sweating is an essential human response that helps us regulate our body temperature within safe ranges. However, when we sweat we not only lose water, but we also lose a large amount of ions, such as salt. This can be very problematic if we sweat for a long time as it can cause the blood to become thicker, increases blood pressure and puts strain on the heart. This poses several risks for vulnerable groups (children, elderly or those who do prolonged exercise in hot conditions). However, the human body can cleverly prevent excess loss of these ions and Dr. Gerrett will present her research which aims to understand how these ions are regulated in the sweat glands. The topics she will discuss include sex, age, exercise intensity, fitness status and heat acclimation.
