Effect of adaptation to high-altitude hypoxia on the microcirculation in the rat mesentery

Abstract

After prolonged adaptation of rats to high-altitude hypoxia (in a pressure chamber at an “altitude” of 6500 m, for 6 h daily for 30–40 days) considerable hyperemia of the intestinal wall and mesentery was observed; the number of functioning capillaries was several times greater than in the control animals but the blood flow in the dilated microvessels was… (More)
