Metabolic responses to facial cooling during prolonged exercise was investigated in five male subjects. Exercise on a bicycle ergometer at 50 rpm for 1 h at 60% maximal heart rate was performed twice, once with cold wind (10 degrees C, 6.5 m . s-1) and once without. Resting experiments were conducted under identical conditions. Facial cooling apparently had no effect on plasma FFA or glucose concentration during exercise but did, however, result in significantly (p less than 0.05) greater fat utilization, as indicated by lower respiratory exchange ratios at 60 min of exercise. The respiratory exchange ratio, blood lactate concentration, oxygen consumption, and estimated myocardial oxygen consumption at 5 min of exercise were higher with facial cooling. The results suggest that metabolic changes occur with facial cooling that are related to a general thermoregulatory response and that the stress of exercise is greater with facial cooling.
