In fe- males, the condition is usually asymptomatic, and therefore many women may be unsuspecting carriers of the disease. Advanced stages of gonorrhea in females may infect the uterus and the uter- ine tubes. A pregnant woman with gonorrhea who is not treated may transmit the bacteria to the eyes of her newborn during its passage through the birth canal, possibly causing blindness. Syphilis is less common than gonorrhea but is the more serious of the two diseases. During the primary stage of syphilis, a lesion called a chancre develops at the point where contact was made with a similar sore on an infected person. The chancre per- sists for 10 days to 3 months before the disease enters the sec- ondary stage, which is characterized by lesions or a skin rash (fig. This stage lasts from 2 weeks to 6 months, and the symptoms disappear of their own accord. The tertiary stage of untreated syphilis may occur 10 to 20 years FIGURE 20.

The primary functions of the skin are pro- tection of the body from the external environment and dissipation or conservation of heat during body temper- ature regulation discount apcalis sx 20mg on line. The skin has one of the lowest metabolic rates in the body and requires relatively little blood flow for purely nu- tritive functions. Consequently, despite its large mass, its resting metabolism does not place a major flow demand on the cardiovascular system. However, in warm climates, body temperature regulation requires that warm blood from the body core be carried to the external surface, where heat transfer to the environment can occur. Therefore, at typical indoor temperatures and during warm weather, skin blood flow is usually far in excess of the need for tissue nu- trition. The reddish color of the skin during exercise in a warm environment reflects the large blood flow and dila- tion of skin arterioles and venules (see Table 17. The increase in the skin’s blood flow probably occurs through two main mechanisms. First, an increase in body core temperature causes a reflex increase in the activity of sympathetic cholinergic nerves, which release acetyl- choline. Acetylcholine release near sweat glands leads to the breakdown of a plasma protein (kininogen) to form bradykinin, a potent dilator of skin blood vessels, which in- The vasculature of the skin.

During mild to moderate exercise in a warm envi- ronment, skin blood flow can equal or exceed blood flow to Sweat glands derive virtually all sweat water from blood the skeletal muscles.
