Acclimatization

 

Acclimatization is the adaptation of the body to continuous heat or cold over several weeks. In man, heat adaptation is more developed than cold adaptation. Aerobic capacity increases. In a hot environment, heat production decreases and heat loss increases for a given amount of work. Sweat production may increase to 2 liters per hour. Increased aldosterone secretion causes decreased salt loss. In a cold environment, heat production may be increased by 10%.
