Many of you may know the story about how the large St. Bernard dogs rescue people stranded in snow drifts in the mountains carrying a container of strong alcoholic beverage in casks around their necks, used so that the rescued person can drink from it and get warm. Research and report on the short and longer term effects of drinking alcohol (ethanol) on body temperature, particularly in cold weather. In your answers include what happens to blood flow and metabolism and heat loss. Also include an energy balance at the skin surface and any other energy balances that may be appropriate for the particular method being discussed.
Guidelines for the report are Times New Roman 12-point font, double-spaced, 1 cover page (with course and paper title, student info etc.), 2 pages of text (standard margins, no titles) plus a third page of references using the referencing method given in L. Finkelstein’s Pocket Book of Technical Writing, 3rd Ed. with at least 3 references.
preview of the answer..
Since the 18th century, St. Bernard dogs with barrels of brandy attached to their collars have been warming people who have been trapped in snow. Does alcohol really raise our body temperature? What are the long and short term effects of drinking alcohol/ethanol on body temperature?
One alcoholic drink can make you feel warmer, but in real sense lowers your core body temperature. Dr. William Haynes stated, “Consumption of alcohol undoes many of the human body’s healthy reflexes, one of which is keeping the core body temperature warm in cold weather.” …
