We compared arterial growth to hemodynamic changes in the perinatal period in lambs. Blood pressure did not change significantly from 120 days gestation to 3 days postpartum, when it was 45.4 +/- 1.9 mmHg; however, pressure rose to 64.8 +/- 2.5 mmHg at 21 days postpartum. Thoracic and abdominal aortic and iliac and carotid arterial blood flows fell > 50% after birth but returned to fetal levels except in the abdominal aorta by 21 days postpartum. Blood flows in mesenteric (BFm) and renal (BFr… CONTINUE READING
