How to use "Diaphoresis" in context?

Diaphoresis is the process of inducing or increasing the production of sweat. This is achieved by directing warm, moist air over the body through a device such as a fan, clothes dryer, humidifier, or sauna. The air currents cause the pores in the skin to open, resulting in the release of sweat. The increased sweat production can help to cool the body and increase evaporative heat loss. Diaphoresis may also be used to treat or prevent overheating or heat stroke.
