A preliminary study on infrared thermal imaging of cross-country skiers and swimmers subjected to endurance exercise

This study was focused on the thermal mapping of skin over the selected muscle zones in two groups of elite athletes fully engaged in completely other sports performing about an hour running effort at individual AT intensity. Two groups of elite male athletes, a group of cross-country skiers (CS; N = 6) and a group of elite endurance swimmers (SW; N = 4), were investigated...

Diversity in athlete’s response to strength effort in normobaric hypoxia

The hypoxia may be used during exercise training sessions in humans with the aim of improving athletic performance. The effect of normobaric hypoxia strength training on thermal properties of blood serum has been evaluated in a group of 12 male and female athletes using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Each athlete was tested under normoxic and simulated hypoxic (4000 m...

Calorimetric monitoring of the effect of endurance training and testosterone treatment on rat serum denaturation transition

Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was applied to evaluate whether endurance training and/or testosterone treatment affect thermal behavior of rat serum. Thirty-six adolescent male Wistar rats were divided into six groups: three untrained and three trained groups, receiving weekly 0, 8, or 80 mg kg BM −1 of testosterone enanthate (TE) each. Total testosterone was...

May thermal imaging be useful in cyclist endurance tests?

Thermovision is a completely non-invasive and easy-to-perform method of imaging, and it is becoming useful not only in different modalities of clinical medicine, but also in sports medicine. However, it seems that thermal imaging may also find some use in training. That is why the aim of these studies is to compare temperature parameters with data obtained from specialist...

DSC serum profiles of sportsmen

The blood serum of young athletes has been investigated by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) method. The component peaks of complex endothermic transition corresponding to serum denaturation may be correlated with the main protein fractions of serum: albumin, alpha-1, alpha-2, beta- and gamma-globulins. The averaged shape of thermal transition observed for serum of...

Calorimetric and spectroscopic studies characterization of newborn rat’ blood serum after maternal administration of cyclophosphamide

Differential scanning microcalorimetry (DSC) and UV–VIS absorption spectroscopy were used to obtain the characteristics of blood serum from newborn rat’ after maternal treatment with cyclophosphamide in comparison with control. The obtained DSC curves reveal a complex endothermic peak due to the unfolding process of various serum proteins. Thermal profiles and absorption spectra...
