OBJECTIVES To develop a valid experimental method for quantifying blood flow in continuously branching skeletal muscle arterioles, and to derive an empirical relationship between velocity ratio (V(Max)/V(Mean)) and arteriolar diameter. METHODS We evaluated arteriolar trees using IVVM of rat gluteus maximus muscle and developed a method to acquire single… CONTINUE READING
