The present study was designed to test the hypothesis that gender and female reproductive cycle phase influence the restitution of blood volume following blood loss. The experiments were performed in conscious 9- to 11-wk-old Sprague-Dawley rats subjected to a slow hemorrhage of 19 ml/kg over 40 min. The effect of hemorrhage was compared in male rats and in female rats in either proestrus (Pro) or metestrus (Met). In comparison with either metestrus females or males, females hemorrhaged on the… CONTINUE READING
