The hemodynamic behavior of Hb SS erythrocytes introduced into the microcirculation of cremaster muscle (rat and mouse) was studied by intravital microscopy. Simultaneous measurements of intravascular pressure, pressure drop, red cell velocity, hematocrit and oxygen tensions were made to evaluate both regional resistance (arteriovenous) from 2nd order arterioles to venules, as well as the resistance to blood flow in single unbranched arterioles. Following the isovolemic exchange of 2 to 3 blood… CONTINUE READING
