9 °C had been measured did not suffer from heat stroke. 5 and 43 °C, the thermoregulatory center in the midbrain fails (→ p. 24) and sweating ceases. Disorientation, apathy, and loss of consciousness result (heat stroke). Cerebral edema with accompanying damage to the central nervous system will, without rapid help, lead to death; children are especially at risk because their surface area to body mass ratios are larger than adultsʼ, and they produce less sweat. Treatment of heat stroke consists of bringing the person into a cooler environment and/or submerging them into cool water.

The Fe (split off from heme) enters the blood or remains in the mucosa as ferritin-Fe3+ and returns to the lumen on mucosal cell disintegration. Non-heme Fe can be absorbed only in the form of Fe2+, which is absorbed by a Fe2+-H+symport carrier (DCT1). A low pH of the chyme is essential for absorption, because it will 1) increase the H+ gradient that drives Fe2+ into the cell via DCT1, and 2) release Fe from compounds in food. Non-heme Fe3+ in food must be reduced by ferrireductase (+ ascorbate) to Fe2+ on the surface of the luminal mucosa (→ A 1, FR).

34), bilirubin, formed from liberated heme, is excreted in the bile after conjugation in the liver. The concentration of unconjugated (“indirect”) bilirubin in serum is increased in hemolysis (→ A 4 and p. ), but in some circumstances also if hemoglobin turnover is increased as a result of ineffective erythropoiesis. ◆ The life-span of RBCs (shortened in hemolytic anemia; → A 5) as well as their total volume can be measured by marking the erythrocytes in vitro with radioactive 51Cr (binding Cr to the Hb-β chain) and then re-infusing them.
