Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a dome sauna applied below the neck, on physiological and subjective responses in 10 young men (20.9±1.3 years). The experiments were carried out under two conditions: 70-90℃ (high-level) and 60-85℃ (middle-level). The subjects were covered with the dome sauna for 60min. and removed for 30min. Blood pressure, pulse, rectal temperature, and skin temperature were measured every 2min. During sauna use, at the middle-level, the average rectal temperature rose from 36.9±0.2℃ to 37.6±0.4℃ (p<0.05), and the average diastolic blood pressure fell from 57.2±4.7mmHg to 50.5±6.9mmHg (p<0.05). The results indicate similar to ordinary bathing. In the young subjects, this dome sauna was performed safely, and these results give us reason to pursue a forward strategy of experiments in elder people and patients with heart disease.
