I have a rather peculiar and random question about heat loss during cold weather.
The head, the hands and the feet all emanate a great quantity of heat and are important regulators in mantaing optimal body temperaure. In cold weather, vasoconstriction occurs in the extremities in order to save heat; also, sometimes there appears the cold induced vasodilatation (CVID) effect.
My question is if the legs recieve more bloodflow than the hands when walking, shouldn't the toes also have a slightly higher temperature than the fingers from the hand? Or is the adrenal vasoconstriction preventing this from happening?
P.S: I couldn't find any study that measured this absurd effect. 😁
