BACKGROUND We wished to determine the role of NO in exercise-induced metabolic forearm vasodilation. METHODS AND RESULTS Young healthy volunteers (n = 11) underwent static handgrip exercise (4 to 5 kg, 3 minutes). Forearm blood flow (FBF) measured by strain plethysmography increased from 4.1 +/- 0.7 mL.min-1.100 mL-1 at rest to 9.8 +/- 1.2 mL.min-1.100 mL… CONTINUE READING
