The circadian rhythm of core BT is mainly regulated by the anterior hypothalamic/preoptic areas at the top of the control hierarchy 6 and is modified by various factors, both endogenous and exogenous. 7

Measurement of this vital sign is particularly important in subjects with cardiovascular disease, whose thermoregulation may have a clinical impact on adverse outcomes. 1-4 Editorial p 1691 BT cycles regularly up and down throughout the day, a process controlled by the oscillation of circadian rhythm.
