Your skin and its function
Bob is running a marathon which expends a great deal of energy. Much of this energy generates heat, which then increases his core body temperature. He is now in the hospital for treatment of dehydration.
Jane is sitting at a football game in late November when it is very cold. Her skin is very cold but her core temperature remains constant. She is being seen in the emergency room for frostbite.
Using these examples, discuss the three ways the integumentary system helps regulate body temperature and briefly describe the role of the integumentary system in combating each of the conditions that Bob and Jane suffered from.
