Influence of age, sex, and aerobic capacity on forearm and skin blood flow and vascular conductance

Abstract

This study investigated the influence of age, sex, and aerobic capacity on resting and peak forearm and cutaneous blood flow (FBF, CBF). We recruited 93 female and 129 male subjects (age range 16–76 years). FBF and CBF were assessed by plethysmography and laser-Doppler flowmetry, respectively. Peak FBF was obtained following 5 min forearm vascular occlusion… (More)
