Retinal artery response to acute systemic blood pressure increase during cold pressor test in humans.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to investigate the response of the retinal arteriole to an acute increase in systemic blood pressure (BP). METHODS Sixteen healthy volunteers underwent a 5-minute cold pressor test (CPT) on the left hand. Retinal blood flow (RBF) was determined using a laser Doppler velocimetry system that enables simultaneous… (More)
