The impact of forearm blood flow limitation on muscle reflex (metaboreflex) activation during exercise was examined in 10 heart failure (HF) (NYHA class III and IV) and 9 control (Ctl) subjects. Rhythmic handgrip contractions (25% maximal voluntary contraction, 30 contractions/min) were performed over 5 min under conditions of ambient pressure or with +50 mmHg positive pressure about the exercising forearm. Mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) and venous effluent hemoglobin (Hb) O2 saturation… CONTINUE READING
