Release of endothelium-derived relaxing factor (EDRF) from the vascular endothelium may contribute to skeletal muscle arteriolar vasodilation during exercise. The present study was undertaken to test this hypothesis. Ten normal subjects underwent brachial arterial catheter insertion and instrumentation of their forearm to measure plethysmographic forearm blood flow. Forearm blood flow was then measured at rest, during two levels of wrist flexion exercise (0.2 and 0.4 W), and during 0.4-W… CONTINUE READING
