LFYS1001 Exercise physiology in different environments (2 cr)
Thermal regulation of the body
Heat stress and hydration strategies during exercise
Cold exposure and exercise-induced physiological responses in the cold
Physiological responses to hypoxia
Upon completion of the course, the student is able to:
describe hot-, cold-, and high-altitude-induced physiological adaptations to bodily functions at rest and during exercise in-depth
describe the body's regulation mechanisms in hot and cold climate, as well as at high-altitude
critically read topic-specific literature
apply leaning to practice
2nd year, autumn. NB! Course starts already on Sep 7th!
