Ischemia of active skeletal muscle elicits a powerful pressor response, termed the muscle metaboreflex. We recently reported that the muscle metaboreflex pressor response acts to partially restore blood flow to the ischemic active skeletal muscle. However, because this reflex is activated by reductions in O2 delivery rather than blood flow per se, gain of the muscle metaboreflex as analyzed on the basis of blood flow alone may underestimate its true strength if this reflex also acts to increase… CONTINUE READING
