The cutaneous circulation is thought to participate in the neurocirculatory adjustments during orthostatic stress, but the underlying mechanisms mediating such reflex cutaneous vasoconstriction are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to assess the relative importance of baroreceptor (cardiopulmonary and arterial) and positional (vestibular, exercise, veno-arteriolar and myogenic) reflexes in triggering cutaneous vasoconstriction during upright posture. First, hypotensive lower body… CONTINUE READING
