We studied the effects of physiological rates (0-4 Hz) of sympathetic stimulation on blood flow and oxygen consumption of extensor digitorum longus muscles isolated from anesthetized dogs. Observations were made with the preparation at rest and during isometric twitch exercise at 1 and 4 Hz produced by somatic nerve stimulation. Graded increases in sympathetic stimulation rate resulted in graded and sustained reductions in muscle blood flow in all cases. A given rate of sympathetic stimulation… CONTINUE READING
