Effect of pregnancy on pressure-volume relationships in circulation of rabbits.

Abstract

Mean circulatory filling pressure (MCFP) has been measured after vagally induced cardiac arrest in 11 nonpregnant and 10 near-term pregnant rabbits, anesthetized with pentobarbital sodium. MCFP was 6.1 +/- 0.4 (SD) mmHg in the nonpregnant and 7.2 +/- 0.4 mmHg in the pregnant animals. The difference of 1.1 mmHg was significant (P < 0.001). Sympathetic… (More)
