The ability to easily manipulate body temperature would impact a number of fields. While perfusion with externally cooled or warmed blood is effective due to the thermoregulatory power of the circulatory system and its diffuse microcirculation, this process is particularly invasive. Noninvasive techniques to date mostly utilize body surface applications that rely on relatively inferior conduction heat transfer.
