Bed Fan - A Cool Idea!
#21
Here's a link from 2012 that asserts the 40-50% body heat loss from the head figure, due to the increase in blood circulation to the head and respiration.
http://en.vidunenahawula.com/sms/05-3/

And another link from the University of MN stating "An unprotected head and neck may lose up to 50% of the body's total heat
production at 40° F and up to 75% at 10° F. " https://www.d.umn.edu/~kgilbert/pep3507-...20loss.pdf

It seems that this is a subject of much debate, depending on how measurements are taken.

The point I was making is that in a practical sense, regardless of the actual percentage of heat loss, cooling one's head is more effective at lowering body temp. than trying to cool the entire body given a limited source of cooling, such as a wet towel or small fan.

Really? This shows only that commonly believed myths continue to be propagated.

Bottom line from me is, do what makes you feel most comfortable.

What is the difference between a Bedfan and any other kind of fan? Does it use some sort of refrigeration? I did not see any explanation on the link.

In (up to) 5,000 year old Chinese medicine (Acupuncture), wind (hot or cold) and dampness (arthritis) are the cause of disease. Ymmv, but try to take the middle road in moderation when trying those specific greedy heuristics: fans or humidity (beyond a natural anatomical level for optimal body fluid levels replenishment: Yin.) And if you are not sweating profusely, try to keep your skin pores cleansed to keep your organ systems in harmony.

And when you sleep, your body's natural defensive systems are asleep also while they are rejuvenating your body; so if it does change the temperature climate significantly you won't be able to adapt and will get sick as a dog.
