There is a rapid increase in blood flow to active skeletal muscle with the onset of exercise, but the mechanism(s) eliciting this increase remains elusive. We hypothesized that the rapid increase in blood flow to active skeletal muscle with the onset of exercise is attributable to vasodilatation as a consequence of smooth muscle hyperpolarization. To test this hypothesis we examined the blood flow response to a brief tetanic contraction in which potassium (K(+)) was infused intra-arterially to… CONTINUE READING
