The effects of and the interaction between local perivascular variation in potassium and bicarbonate concentration on the diameter of pial arteries were studied in cats by the microapplication technique. At 11 mEq/liter of bicarbonate, a direct correlation existed between vascular diameter and K + concentrations between 0 and 10 mEq/liter. At K… CONTINUE READING
