P studies have indicated that reduced tissue oxygen supply due to hypoxia or to hemorrhagic hypotension may increase adrenal medullary secretion. Cannon and Hoskins studied asphyxiated cats by sampling inferior vena caval blood from an area just above the adrenal veins. These workers demonstrated inhibition of rabbit intestine contraction by vena caval blood during asphyxia, suggesting epinephrine release. Houssay and Molinelli anastomosed the left lumboadrenal vein of the dog to the jugular… CONTINUE READING
