Measuring Core Temperature

Measuring core body temperature is necessary to understand the effect of environmental conditions on the body. The body is usually very effective in maintaining core body temperature in a narrow and safe range. During exercise, particularly in extreme conditions, the temperature may push the boundaries of this range.

It is important to monitor body temperature under such conditions, so that action may be taken to prevent permanent damage to the body if the body temperature is too high or too low.

Monitoring body temperature is commonly used in experimental research to determine the effect and increase the understanding how the body reacts and adapts to different exercise regimes or conditions.
