Abstract : The experiments show that there is a very large subject-to-subject variation in the time until onset of shivering and the time until development of severe continuous shivering. These times are increased by increasing the percentage of oxygen in the inspired gas mixture. The mechanism of the effect of oxygen on the shivering response requires further clarification. (Author)
