Lowered microvascular vessel wall oxygen consumption augments tissue pO2 during PgE1-induced vasodilation

Abstract

Continuous infusion of intravenous prostaglandin E1 (PgE1, 2.5 μg/kg/min) was used to determine how vasodilation affects oxygen consumption of the microvascular wall and tissue pO2 in the hamster window chamber model. While systemic measurements (mean arterial pressure and heart rate) and central blood gas measurements were not affected, PgE1 treatment… (More)
