Reflex effect of skeletal muscle mechanoreceptor stimulation on the cardiovascular system.

Abstract

To determine the potential for mechanical stimulation of skeletal muscle to contribute to the reflex cardiovascular response to static contraction (exercise reflex), we examined the cardiovascular effects caused by either passive stretch or external pressure applied to the triceps surae muscles. First, the triceps surae were stretched to an average… (More)
