Does the pressor response to ischemic exercise improve blood flow to contracting muscles in humans?

The purpose of this study was to determine in humans 1) the gain for the reflex pressor response that occurs when perfusion pressure to rhythmically contracting muscles is reduced and 2) whether the pressor response improves blood flow to the contracting muscles. Six normal subjects performed light, moderate, and heavy rhythmic forearm contractions (30/min… CONTINUE READING
