Abstract 1. 1. Arterial pressure and flow were measured in the digital circulation both before and after vasodilatation in normotensive and hypertensive pregnant women in the third trimester. The work, work index, and force of vasoconstriction and caliber changes were calculated from the data. 2. 2. There was some increase in neurogenic vasoconstriction in the hypertensive group. 3. 3. Pregnancy itself tended to decrease neurogenic vasoconstriction in both groups, probably because of increased… CONTINUE READING
