  • The cutaneous venoarteriolar response (CVAR) is a local non-adrenergic vasoconstrictor reflex that is engaged via increases in local transmural pressure. The purpose of this study was to determine if local temperature alters the vasoconstrictor ability of the CVAR. Twelve (5 male, 7 female) subjects performed a CVAR maneuver at local temperatures of 30±1, 34, 38, and 42° C. CVAR was also engaged after vasodilation via intradermal perfusion of sodium nitroprusside or the attenuation of local… CONTINUE READING
