Abstract

Non-freezing cold injury (NFCI) is caused by prolonged exposure of the extremities to cold. The long-term sequelae of NFCI, include cold-sensitivity and pain[1]. The cold sensitivity is characterised by a reduction in basal skin blood flow and augmented vasoconstriction during cold exposure. We tested the hypothesis that sublingual GTN would increase blood flow in the peripheral microcirculation during and after a mild cold challenge in individuals who had not been diagnosed with NFCI, but were cold-sensitive.
