Biphasic alterations in glucose metabolism by soleus muscle from the burned limb.

Tissue temperature and in vitro glucose metabolism by rat soleus muscle were studied following a 3-second burn on one hind limb in 90 degrees C water. The injury increased the subcutaneous temperature in the calf of the burned limb to 53.4 +/- 0.7 (SE) degrees C and that between soleus muscle and fibula to 49.4 +/- 1.3 degrees C, both temperatures returning… (More)
