Acute hypoxemia results in hypertension, bradycardia, and cardiac output redistribution in fetal sheep. The blood flow redistribution is produced by differential changes in vascular resistance of various fetal organs. alpha-Adrenergic activity is one of the few vasoconstrictor mechanisms thus far identified in the hypoxemic fetal sheep. Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is a potent vasoconstrictor in adults. Since AVP administration to the normoxic fetus mimics some of the fetal cardiovascular… CONTINUE READING
