1. Human subjects performed a sustained contraction of the forearm muscles for 4 min in the presence of arterial and venous occlusion.2. The contraction was maintained at 5% of the maximum voluntary contraction, a tension during which the muscle blood flow might be expected to increase by about three times (Lind & McNicol, 1967).3. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) was identified in the venous effluent from occluded exercising forearm, but not in the venous effluent from occluded forearm without… CONTINUE READING
