Purpose The fingertip skin temperature (FST) reflects skin blood flow, and FST measurement has been suggested for the investigation of vascular responses. As a limitation, the multifactorial nature and the seasonal variation in measured values have been earlier described in adults but not in children. In the present study, we identify the modifiers of FST in a population sample of Finnish children. Methods FST was measured in children (age range 8–11 years, n= 432) with infrared thermometer, and its possible determinants …
