The skeletal muscle pump is thought to be at least partially responsible for the immediate muscle hyperemia seen with exercise. We hypothesized that increases in venous pressure within the muscle would enhance the effectiveness of the muscle pump and yield greater postcontraction hyperemia. In nine anesthetized beagle dogs, arterial inflow and venous… CONTINUE READING
