Abstract:

Mathematical models of blood flow are inevitably embedded in models of human thermoregulation because they take the role of the most significant heat distributor in models of the human thermal system 14, 6. Models of human thermoregulation have a wide range of applications, e.g. for the prediction of the impact of accidents, diseases and clinical treatments see 14 and the references therein. The application of our interest is the prediction of the influence of cooling on the heat distribution in premature infants, see Section 2. In Section 3 we discuss the requirements of a reliable thermoregulation model while the governing equation is described in paragraph four. The employed blood flow model is discussed within Section 5. Section 6 deals with numerical results, followed by concluding remarks in the last paragraph.
