Hello, and welcome to this presentation on "Thermoregulatory Responses". My focus today will be on the clinical assessment and management of heat loss in a nursing situation. This is where my program of research started. And I'm going to briefly acknowledge how that all took place. So you'll understand that research for me, was really a combination of my clinical experience, a curiosity about how physiological mechanisms work, and an extraordinary mentor in my masters program who showed me how nursing research could make a difference in patient care.

I'd like to acknowledge the following, in terms of their contribution to this presentation. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Clinical Nurse Scholars Program supported my research at this institution. The faculty and clinical mentors at the University of Pennsylvania were very supportive of my work. My research mentors Dr. June C. Abbey and Dr. Ralph T. Geer were instrumental in helping me accomplish this particular study.
