Influence of ethanol on circulation in surface-induced hypothermia and subsequent rewarming.


Hypothermia and ethanol are often closely linked and in hypothermic accidents ethanol is often a contributing factor. To study the effects of ethanol on the circulation in hypothermic conditions, cardiac catheterization was carried out on 18 anaesthetized beagle dogs. They were divided into two groups. One gram of ethanol/kg of b.wt. diluted in saline was… (More)
