The effect of steady-state increases in abdominal pressure (Pab) on cardiac performance was studied in seven acutely instrumented swine with pneumoperitoneum (PP). The animal was placed on volume-preset ventilation, and PP was created by air insufflation. Cardiac output (CO), right atrial (Pra), left atrial (Pla), pericardial (Ppe), and abdominal inferior(More)
PURPOSE The physiological role of vasomotion, rhythmic oscillations in vascular tone or diameter, and its underlying mechanisms are unknown. We investigated the characteristics of brachial artery vasomotion in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD). METHODS We performed a retrospective study of 37 patients with IHD. Endothelial function was assessed(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between arterial pulse amplitude change under increased shear stress and the presence of ischemic heart disease (IHD). METHODS This study comprised 31 subjects, including 14 subjects with IHD. We investigated the change in brachial artery pulse amplitude during flow-mediated dilation (FMD)(More)
